The International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) has cleared ultra-nationalist Serbian politician Vojislav Seselj of all charges. The presiding judge said prosecutors had failed to prove their allegations.
The ICTY in the Hague has found Vojislav Seselj not guilty of all charges. The Serbian ultranationalist was accused of inciting the horrors of the 1991-95 wars in Croatia and Bosnia.
Ex-secret police officers Jovica Stanisic and Franko Simatovic will be retried at the Hague for war crimes committed in the former Yugoslavia. Their first trial ended in an acquittal due to insufficient evidence.
Prosecutors at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia are to appeal the acquittal of Vojislav Seselj. The radical Serbian politician is accused of six counts of war crimes.
Vojislav Seselj was and is a hate preacher, yet he is now a free man again. The trial before the War Crimes Tribunal in The Hague was a fiasco for law and justice, writes Dragoslav Dedovic.
