The Security Council recognised that judges at the ICTR and ICTY may bear the nationalities of two or more countries and that one such person in this position had been elected to serve at one of the tribunals. It considered that such persons should bear the nationality of the state in which they normally exercise civil and political rights. Acting under Chapter VII of the United Nations Charter, the statutes for both tribunals were amended accordingly to include this provision.[2]
