TAGS: PREL IO TU UN
SUBJECT: GOT REQUEST FOR USG SUPPORT FOR CANDIDACY IN
INTERNATIONAL TRIBUNAL FOR RWANDA


1. ACTION REQUEST - PARA 4.


2. Embassy received MFA diplomatic note no. 2003/UKGY/178657
dated May 5 requesting USG support for its candidate to the
International Tribunal for Rwanda at the United Nations
General Assembly in June 2003 in New York. The body of the
diplomatic note is as follows:


3. BEGIN TEXT:


Turkey has contributed to the strenghtening of international
criminal law also through its support for the establishment
of the International Criminal Tribunals for the Former
Yugoslavia and Rwanda. The nomination of a Turkish candidate
for election as ad-litem judge to the International Criminal
Tribunal for Rwanda, further demonstrates Turkey's commitment
to the development of international humanitarian and criminal
law.


Mr. Aydin Sefa Akay, whose curriculum vitae is attached
herewith, is presently Legal Counsellor of the Permanent
Representation of Turkey to the Council of Europe. He served
as Reporter of the Special Committee on the Charter of the
United Nations and the Strengthening of the Role of the
Organization in 1992 and also as a member of the Appeals
Council for the UN Administer Tribunal between 1991-1992.
Mr. Akay has represented Turkey in several international
conferences, including Rio Conference on environmental
matters, Asian-African Legal Consultative Committee (AALCC)
and Deputy Minister's Committee of the Council of Europe.


The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Turkey
would therefore highly appreciate the valuable support of the
Government of the United States of America, for election of
Mr. Aydin Sefa Akay, as an ad-litem Judge to the
International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda for the
said-elections. END TEXT


4. Post requests Department guidance for Embassy's response
