The International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) is a United Nations' court of law that deals with war crimes that took place during the conflicts in the Balkans in the 1990s.
The wars in the Balkans were a series of conflicts that took place in the former Yugoslavia. 140,000 people were killed in the war, and 4 million people were displaced.
The Tribunal indicted 161 individuals. More than 4 thousand victims and witnesses testified.
It is expected that the ICTY will finish its work in 2017. The handover of judicial records already started in late January 2015.
