HONOLULU (East-West Wire, Jan. 7) - A Seminar on International Humanitarian Law for the Indonesian Supreme Court will be held at the East-West Center in Honolulu Jan. 10 to 14.

Participants include members of the Indonesian Supreme Court, the High Courts of Jakarta and Surabaya and a group of international faculty from the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, the International Criminal Court, and elsewhere.

Indonesia's Chief Justice Bagir Manan will attend the seminar along with eight other justices from the Supreme Court and six appeals court judges, all who hear appeals in human rights cases in Indonesia.
