At ICTR, 52 indictees have appeared in proceedings before the tribunal. Nine have been convicted, none have been acquitted or had convictions overturned on appeal, 26 are at the pre-trial stage and 17 currently on trial.

The United Kingdom ratified the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, in New York, on 4 October 2001, being the 42nd state to do so. Forty-six states have now ratified. The court will be established immediately following the 60th ratification. It will not have retrospective jurisdiction.
