|Security Council composition|
United Nations Security Council resolution 1126, adopted unanimously on 27 August 1997, after receiving a letter from the Secretary-General Kofi Annan, the Council endorsed his recommendation that judges Karibi-Whyte, Odio Benito and Jan, once they were replaced, finish the Čelebići case that they began before they ended their term of office. It also noted the intention of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia to finish the case by November 1998.
Kofi Annan's letter stated that if the three judges could not complete the case, it would have been necessary to restart the trials of the suspects, which would prolong the trial and violate the right of the accused to due process of law.
