Case No: IT-09-92-T 3 30 May 2012
presentation of the Prosecution's evidence as soon as possible.
On 24 May 2012 the Trial Chamber entered its Decision entitled “Decision onUrgent Defence Motion of 14 May 2012 and reasons for Decision on Two Defence Requestsfor Adjournment of the Start of Trial of 3 May 2012.” (hereinafter the “Subject Decision”)
The Subject Decision specified, among other things, that the hearing of Evidence would commence on the 25
of June 2012. This finding was based on clear errorsof reasoning and without regard for relevant new information and arguments from theDefense.
Accordingly, the Defence at this time seeks RECONSIDERATION by theTrial Chamber of its Subject Decision, as set forth in greater detail herein. Insofar as theinstant submission addresses the fundamental rights of the Accused in respect to a fair trialupon the serious charges against him, the Defence, on behalf of Mr. Ratko Mladic,respectfully requests the Chamber’s permission to exceed the customary word limit for Motions
with this filing. Efforts have been undertaken to make this submission as concise as possible, but given the severity of the subject matter, the Defence asks for the indulgence of the Chamber to briefly exceed
the word limit to permit the Defence to present its fullarguments in the following submission. Otherwise the Defence would be forced to filemultiple filings on the various grounds submitted, which would not assist the Chamber, andwould detract the Defence from further preparations for Trial. It is much more efficient thatthey be dealt with together, and presents a full picture of the breadth of the concerns raised.
