    Serbian authorities have arrested Goran Hadzic, the last remaining fugitive war crimes suspect sought by the UN tribunal for the former Yugoslavia. Mr Hadzic, now 52, led Serb separatist forces during Croatia's 1991-1995 war. Within hours of the arrest, a Serbian court approved his extradition to the Hague. He has been charged with the murder of hundreds of non-Serbs. The arrest comes less than two months after Serbia caught former Bosnian Serb military commander Ratko Mladic. Serbian President Boris Tadic confirmed Mr Hadzic's arrest at a news conference. He said the suspect had been detained early on Wednesday in the...

    A classified document obtained by FRANCE 24 suggests the United Nations knew about organ trafficking in postwar Kosovo as early as 2003, five years before prosecutors in The Hague first raised the issue. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon was expected to deliver a report on the situation in Kosovo to the Security Council in New York on Wednesday, reaffirming UN support for investigations into human organ trafficking during Kosovoís postwar period. But a classified document obtained by FRANCE 24 indicates the UN knew of trafficking well before the issue was first raised by Carla del Ponte, a former prosecutor at...

    (IsraelNN.com) Judge Richard Goldstone, whose recent United Nations Human Rights Council investigation purported to find evidence of Israeli war crimes in Gaza, once indicted a fictional Serbian character and a dead man for war crimes as well. As in Gaza, those indictments were also allegedly based on "eyewitness testimony." The problem for NATO forces in tracking down the serial rapist was that Gruban from Bijelo Polje, also known as Gruban Malic, is a fictional character. established by the United Nations in 1993. In 1995, one year into his term as chief ICTY prosecutor, Goldstone presented an indictment of several Serbs...

    The Criminal Tribunal for Former Yugoslavia (ICTY), since its inception in 1993 has been assailed by many as a NATO political instrument to justify dismemberment of Yugoslavia and NATO aggressions. It has been essentially a rogue court with rigged rules and scandalous protocol to achieve political objective to convict. Some judges did not hear about the Balkans until they arrived in The Hague. John Laughland wrote: ďIt is not victorís justice; it is no justice at all.Ē The Tribunalís verdict for the Serbs was predetermined Ėall would be found guilty.

    - Serbian newspapers have hailed nationalist leader and war crimes indictee Seselj’s interruption of a 28-day hunger strike in the Hague jail as a great victory against the United Nations' Yugoslav war crimes tribunal. "Seselj checkmates the Hague," said daily Glas javnosti in a front page article. ;Victory against the Hague and hunger,; said daily Kurir. Other media gave great publicity to Seselj’s decision to break off his hunger strike late on Friday, after the UN tribunal fulfilled most of his demands which prompted him to strike.

    ....' UN human rights chief Louise Arbour suggested Wednesday that the military operations being carried out in Lebanon, Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories could be considered war crimes. The obligation to protect civilians during hostilities is entrenched in international law, "which defines war crimes and crimes against humanity," Arbour said in a statement. "The scale of the killings in the region, and their predictability, could engage the personal criminal responsibility of those involved, particularly those in a position of command and control," she added.

    Milosevic's death probably marks only the second or third time most people have heard anything about the so-called "Second Nuremberg" trial in the four years it has been proceeding. That's because it wasn't going too well - for the prosecution, which Milosevic embarrassed on a daily basis. Journalists were snickering at the prosecution's flimsy evidence and flaccid performance. Thatís right: journalists--those people who built their careers in the 1990s as co-belligerents against the Serbs in the Balkan wars. Though Milosevic's conviction was a foregone conclusion (we wouldn't want any more rampaging Muslims than there already are in Europe), he was...

Following the death of Slobodan Milosevic in custody at The Hague, Professor Dr Donald Uges, a forensic toxicologist at the University Hospital in Groningen, was reported as having performed tests on the late presidentís blood. This followed allegations, made by Milosevic himself before his death and by his son, Marko, after it, that he was being poisoned: Marko Milosevic said on 13th March in The Hague that his father had been murdered. Dr Uges said that he had discovered traces on an antibiotic, rifampicin,...

    A medical mystery after Milosevic's death By Elisabeth Rosenthal and Marlise Simons The New York Times THURSDAY, MARCH 16, 2006 ROME Frustrated and filled with skepticism about Slobodan Milosevic's litany of medical complaints, the UN war crimes tribunal at The Hague at times failed to investigate them adequately, according to several doctors who had recently examined the former Serbian leader. "His medical condition was not good, so we asked for additional tests to evaluate his cardiac situation," said Dr. Florence Leclercq, a French cardiologist who examined Milosevic for about three hours in November. "But these investigations were never performed, and...

Lavrov said Russia had been offended by the UN war crimes tribunal's refusal to let Milosevic receive treatment for his heart condition in Russia in December. Russia "was ready to provide medical assistance to Milosevic and give 100-percent guarantees of his timely return to The Hague. These guarantees were...

    I was one of the last western journalists to meet Slobodan Milosevic. Having been called to The Hague as a potential witness, I spent an hour in his cell in January last year. Like most who met him, I found him polite and intelligent. "We will win," he told me. "Freedom is a universal value. They have no evidence against me." If the international criminal tribunal for the former Yugoslavia were a proper court of law, the charges against him would have been dismissed long ago. Unfortunately, it is a highly politicised organ, created on the initiative of the very...
