Vojislav Seselj's Anklage beim ITCY in Den Haag entwickelt sich zur Kaspar Nummer

Wie schon beim Milosevis Prozeß, wo am Schluß die Anklage keine Beweise für eine Verurteilung vorlegen konnte, obwohl Milosevic über 2 Jahren in Haft saß, welche dann mit seinem so merkwürdigem Tod beendet wurde, entwickelt sich auch der Vojislav Seselj's Prozeß zur Lach Nummer, weil man angeblich keine Zeugen vorladen kann und die Sicherheit dieser Zeugen garantieren könnte.

Judges at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) suspended indefinitely the trial of Serbian ultra-nationalist leader Vojislav Seselj on Wednesday (February 11th), citing witness safety concerns.

"A majority of judges decided that the remaining testimony of about ten witnesses not be heard at the moment because it would not be possible to guarantee ... their security," ICTY spokeswoman Nerma Jelacic told AFP. Judges also believe the witnesses might be reluctant to give complete testimony if they fear for their own safety.
