Court Days reserved for 2021

Courtroom D

If you would like to be considered for a seat in courtroom D, you must request accreditation by sending an e-mail to registration.courtmh17@rechtspraak.nl. If demand for seats in the courtroom exceeds the number available, you may not be able to attend the hearing in courtroom D. If you wish to have the option of following the criminal proceedings in the press centre instead, please also request accreditation for the press centre.

Press Centre

In the press centre, you can view and listen to the proceedings through a live connection with courtroom D. If you would like to attend the MH17 criminal proceedings in the press centre, you may register using the accreditation system. You can select under "court sessions" the court days that you wish to attend.

Accreditation system

Attention

Please, only register if you have plans to attend a hearing in the press centre. If you are not sure, please contact the accreditation staff by e-mail at registration.courtmh17@rechtspraak.nl. This will enable the court to ascertain how many journalists are actually to be expected on a given day. If demand exceeds the number of seats available (due to the corona virus), it is possible that you will not be able to attend the hearing at the press centre.

Seat allocation in courtroom D and press centre

The order in which registrations are received does not determine seat allocation. By Thursday 28 October at the latest, you will be notified whether you may attend the hearing at the JCS or the press centre. Your accreditation is personal. This means that you cannot transfer it to someone else.

Contact

If you have queries regarding the accreditation process, you can contact the MH17 communications team by e-mail at registration.courtmh17@rechtspraak.nl.
If you have other queries, please contact communication MH17 trial by e-mail at MH17@rechtspraak.nl.
