Arusha’s ICTR transfers to IRMCT

The activities of the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) are to be transferred to the International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunal (IRMCT) in Arusha from 1 July.

The ICTR was created in 1995 to handle cases relating to the 1994 Rwandan genocide, and the IRMCT was established by UN Security Council in December 2010 to complete the work begun by the ICTR.

The UN General Assembly has designated $3 million for the Arusha-based facilities of the IRMCT, in particular its archives which the UN Security Council recently decided would remain in Arusha, not Rwanda.

Rwandans can access public information relating to the tribunal from the ICTR Information and Documentation Centre in the Rwandan capital Kigali.

The sister tribunal of the ICTR is the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY).
