Front and centre in the Tribunal courtroom sit the three judges who are hearing the trial. To their right sit the accused (there is often more than one accused in a trial, and sometimes as many as six), flanked by guards, and with them on that side of the room are their defence counsel. In trials of multiple accused,1 the defence teams might number as many as 20 attorneys and staff on the defence side of the courtroom. To the judges’ left sit the attorneys and staff from the Office of the Prosecutor. In the middle of the courtroom, facing the judges, sits the witness. Right behind the witness is the public gallery, divided from the courtroom by a bullet-proof glass window.2 Anyone from the public may attend open sessions of trials.
