Application for Revision of the Judgment in the Case concerning Application of the Genocide Convention


ICJ sealOn 24 April 2001, the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (FRY) instituted proceedings, whereby it requested the Court to revise the Judgment delivered on 11 July 1996 on the preliminary objections raised in the case concerning “Application of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (Bosnia and Herzegovina v. Yugoslavia)”. By that judgement, the Court had declared that it had jurisdiction, finding that the Application filed by Bosnia and Herzegovina was admissible. Yugoslavia contended that a revision was necessary since its access to the United Nations (in November 2000) revealed new facts which were not known in 1996. On 3 February 2003, the Court found that Yugoslavia's Application for revision was inadmissible.
