The District Court of The Hague has reserved periods for the MH17 trial at the Schiphol Judicial Complex (JCS). The court has reserved these periods in order to ensure there will be space available to conduct hearings in the MH17 trial. 

It is not yet known whether the court will sit every day. Circumstances may require that hearings be shortened, re-scheduled, suspended or even cancelled.
