A part of the official archive of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) including original copies of the court verdicts has been delivered to the Bosnian capital, the City Administration confirmed on Monday.
The documents will be permanently stored at the Sarajevo City Hall and available in two languages, English and local languages.
Representatives of the ICTY and the City Administration earlier agreed to establish a special information centre, which would get its premises at the City Hall.
The Information Centre resembles the ICTY's authentic courtroom.
“The archive which the centre received will additionally strengthen its (the court's) importance and contribute to the process of transitional justice on these territories, to the fight against the denial of war crimes and prevention of revisionism,” said the City Administration.
The Tribunal was established in 1993 to prosecute serious crimes committed during the Yugoslav wars in the early 1990s.
On December 31, 2017, the court closed down and was succeeded by the International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals (IRMCT).
