Appeals stage

Both the Prosecutor and the Defence have the right to appeal a Trial Chamber's decision on the verdict (decision on guilt or innocence of the accused). The victims and the convicted person may appeal an order for reparations. An appeal is decided by five judges of the Appeals Chamber, who are never the same judges as those who gave the original verdict. The Appeals Chamber decides whether to uphold the appealed decision, amend it, or reverse it. This is thus the final judgment, unless the Appeals Chamber orders a re-trial before the Trial Chamber.
