SUMMARY RECORD OF THE 43RD MEETING : 5TH COMMITTEE, HELD AT HEADQUARTERS, NEW YORK, ON THURSDAY, 22 MARCH 2007, GENERAL ASSEMBLY, 61ST SESSION
Swift, fair, predictable and independent justice was obviously costly, but the current system was also costly and, in many cases, time-consuming and ineffective. (...) As noted in the report of the Redesign Panel, the proposed reform would entail costs. (...) Without significant justification, the recommendation was too costly to endorse. 60. On the question of whether cases submitted to the formal justice system should be decided upon in the first instance by a single judge, as recommended by the Redesign Panel and the Advisory Committee, or by a panel of three judges, as proposed by the Secretary- General, his delegation supported the former position.

The interactive exchange with the Administration and with Judge Mary Gaudron, member of the Redesign Panel, had been very useful and informative. (...)

It was outmoded, dysfunctional, ineffective and costly and should be redesigned.

SUMMARY RECORD OF THE 15TH MEETING : 5TH COMMITTEE, HELD AT HEADQUARTERS, NEW YORK, ON MONDAY, 5 NOVEMBER 2007, GENERAL ASSEMBLY, 62ND SESSION
Apparently the use of less costly alternatives, such as outside counsel or an office staffed by a handful of junior officers, were false economies. (...) The Committee might wish to consider inviting members of the Redesign Panel to help set up the Council, as they knew the system and had performed their tasks with distinction. 41. (...) Again, the Committee might consider recommending that members of the Redesign Panel should be appointed as judges of the Joint Appeals Boards and the Joint Disciplinary Committees. 44.

CERTAIN TECHNICAL ASPECTS OF ANTI-VEHICLE LANDMINES : WORKING PAPER / SUBMITTED BY CHINA
Anti-vehicle landmines form part of an entire system of weapons and any changes to them will have consequences affecting all aspects of the system, including the need to redesign the landmine and its remote delivery system, to ensure their production, to equip and train the armed forces in their use in combat, and so on and so forth: the issue cannot be confined to the landmine alone. (...) This means that the process will be both very costly and time-consuming. In addition, a large number of technical problems still need to be resolved. (...) The new anti-vehicle landmine systems are much more costly. Where China is concerned, the costs of design, technical appraisal, materials, processing, purchasing, transport and maintenance, as well as surcharges and many other items, would have to factored into the cost of these new landmines.
