This introductory note refers to the work of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in 2013. The background of each case is initially summarised and the main elements of the decision are analysed. During 2013, three Judgements were issued by the Trial Chambers. Most of the accused were sentenced to prison by the Chambers but Jovica Stanišić and Franko Simatović were found not guilty and acquitted of all counts. The Appeals Chamber issued three judgements: the Popović et al. case, terminating appellate proceedings in relation to Milan Gvero, who died during the proceedings; another reversing the Trial Chamber’s acquittal of Radovan Karadžić, former president of Republika Srpska, for genocide, reinstating those charges, and remanding the matter to the Trial Chamber; and the third one reversing the convictions of Momčilo Perišić, Chief of the General Staff of the Yugoslav Army, and entering a verdict of acquittal.

Keywords:   actus reus, joint criminal enterprise, mens rea, objective responsibility, verdict of acquittal
