Practice Relating to Rule 161. International Cooperation in Criminal Proceedings
Section E. Cooperation with international criminal tribunals
In 1997, during plenary discussions in the UN General Assembly on a report of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), Turkey stated:
[Turkey welcomes] the continuing cooperative approach [with regard to the ICTY] demonstrated by two States, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Croatia … On the other hand, it is regrettable that this cooperative attitude was not displayed by the other parties.
… Refusal to comply with [the commitments made in the 1995 Dayton Accords], after formal recognition of the Tribunal and the undertaking to cooperate with it, constitutes a violation of the Agreement.
