I have the honour to address myself to you from the new Technical Secretary of the International Criminal Bar Association. My name is Inma Sañé and together with my colleague Mila Cabet we will be happy to assist you with any enquiries or incidences you may have.
We are currently living in difficult times due to the impact and consequences that the COVID-19 pandemic has been causing. With the hope that all of you, your families and friends are well, we want to convey a message of encouragement, and express our full support.
The members of the Executive Committee and the Technical Secretariat will continue working to maintain the maximum normality in the functioning of the International Criminal Bar Association, and likewise we hope to be able to offer you new services of your interest very soon.
Dear colleagues, one year after the General Assembly and the election of the new Executive Committee of ICB (15 March 2019 - 15 March 2020), I have selected a few pictures that highlight a part of the activities organised by our association. We thank you and are looking forward to seeing even more interesting events and initiatives.

Our journal has collaboration with authors from various countries of the world, including notable contributions from Romanian professors, law practitioners, as well PhD students. Our aim is not only to approach novelty in the classical domains but also to reveal the interdisciplinary relations between law disciplines and other domains (medical law, legal statistics, nutrition law, juridical management, management of public administration, industrial relations, criminal business law, European taxation, etc.). Our journal aims to become a forum for debates on theoretical issues, to become a support for law practitioners and to stimulate research on a regional, national and international level. This journal provides open access to its content, based on the principle that makes research freely available to the public, supporting a greater global exchange of knowledge. The “Juridical Current” journal has been published quarterly since 1997 in printed and online version in Romanian, English and French.

Today, 12 April 2019, Pre-Trial Chamber II of the International Criminal Court (ICC) rejected unanimously the request of the Prosecutor to proceed with an investigation for alleged crimes against humanity and war crimes, on the territory of in the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan. The judges decided that an investigation into the situation in Afghanistan at this stage would not serve the interests of justice. The Chamber is composed of Judge Antoine Kesia-Mbe Mindua, who will be appending a concurring separate opinion, Judge Tomoko Akane and Judge Rosario Salvatore Aitala.
The Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) reported today that it will release the verdict in the trial that followed against former Bosnian-Serbian leader Radovan Karadzic for war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide during the war of Bosnia (1992-1995).
The Appeals Chamber issued its Judgement in the Popović et al. case, concerning five senior Bosnian Serbian military officials for crimes perpetrated by Bosnian Serb forces in July 1995, following the takeover of the protected areas of Srebrenica and Žepa.
The final convictions for the five Appellants stand as follows.
The Tribunal’s Registrar John Hocking and the General Director of the Custodial Institutions Agency of The Netherlands, Peter Hennephof, today signed an extension of the Agreement on Detention Facilities and Services between the United Nations and the State of The Netherlands.
Through this Agreement, The Netherlands will continue to provide the Tribunal with the detention facilities and services necessary to house all persons detained on the authority of the Tribunal and The Hague branch of the Mechanism.
The Agreement is effective from 1 January to 31 December 2015 and allows for a further extension until the end of 2017. It covers important matters such as the provision of medical services to Tribunal detainees, the management and maintenance of the United Nations Detention Unit (UNDU) and the costs of detention. The Agreement is vital in allowing the Tribunal to fulfil its mandate as it ensures that the conditions in which the detainees are housed meet the highest international standards.
