This is an edited sound recording of Kevin Parker, vice-president of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), outlining the size and complexity of cases heard by the Tribunal. He says every case involves working in at least three languages to accommodate victims, witnesses, accused, lawyers and judges, and that judges hear evidence from many witnesses and receive hundreds of pages of documents. He says the average trial takes a year and a half, but one case has lasted more than four years. The recording was made in July 2008.
