The UN would give allotments to us for say three months like you give to a child and say, Dont spend it all in one place. How do you set up a tribunal when you cant even give contracts to people?! So, it was frustrating.

Gabrielle Kirk McDonald, an ICTY judge from 1993 to 1997 and then its president (1997-1999), talks about the birth-pangs of the court, how it was receiving pocket money instead of the budget from the UN in the first years, and how it was left at the mercy of the authorities of ex-Yugoslav states who refused to cooperate and execute binding court orders.
