"Whilst awaiting the Co-Prosecutors' submissions, the CIJ is prioritizing its work to ensure that the Closing Order is ready as soon as possible," according to the court's monthly newsletter. "The case is now on schedule for transfer to the Trial Chamber at the latest by early August."

Eight civil parties are expected to participate in the case and more than 20 additional applications are under consideration.
