ICTY: Norman Farrell Appointed Deputy Prosecutor

Norman Farrell, a Canadian national, has taken up the post of Deputy Prosecutor at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia. He replaces David Tolbert, who is now the Secretary-General's Special Expert on United Nations Assistance to the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia. Readers will recall that Tolbert was favored by some to replace Carla Del Ponte as the ICTY's Prosecutor prior to Serge Brammertz's appointment to that post in November.
