PROSECUTION ADAMANT: SESELJ MUST GO BACK TO THE HAGUE

The prosecution has filed an appeal against the Trial Chamber’s decision to dismiss its initial motion for Vojislav Seselj's return to the detention unit. The prosecution alleges Seselj has breached the ‘minimal conditions’ for the provisional release. In his public statements Seselj has vowed he will never return voluntarily to The Hague and threatened victims and witnesses who have testified at his trial

SESELJ REMAINS IN SERBIA

The Trial Chamber has rejected the prosecution’s motion to revoke the decision from November 2014 granting Vojislav Seselj provisional release. Seselj had not asked to be provisionally released. The Trial Chamber has also denied the motion in which the accused called for ‘rigorous disciplinary measures’ against the chief prosecutor because of his alleged ‘unacceptable conduct’

SESELJ: DISICPLINE BRAMMERTZ; BRAMMERTZ: DON’T LISTEN TO SESELJ

According to the Serbian Radical Party leader, when the prosecution demanded that Seselj return to The Hague, it in fact ‘conveyed the position of Croatia and the European Union, who have been Seselj’s political opponents for decades’. Seselj has therefore called for ‘rigorous disciplinary measures’ against the chief prosecutor. The prosecutor replied that the motion to suspend the provisional release was submitted after the accused had said he would not return voluntarily to The Hague. Furthermore, Seselj's recent statements were offensive to the victims and threatened all those who chose to cooperate with the OTP, the prosecutor noted

WHY JUDGE NIANG OPPOSED SESELJ’S RELEASE

Last week the Senegalese judge opposed the decision to provisionally release Vojislav Seselj. In the separate opinion Judge Niang states that the accused should have made a commitment that he would comply with the conditions for provisional release. In Judge Niang’s opinion, the Tribunal should have secured Seselj’s return to The Hague when it becomes necessary

MISCARRIAGE OF JUSTICE

Has Vojislav Seselj been provisionally released for ‘humanitarian reasons’ pending his trial judgment? Or has Seselj actually forced the Tribunal to expel him from the Detention Unit? Is the miscarriage of the 10 years long painful search for the truth and justice the acceptable price for the punishment of a ‘disloyal judge’?

JUDGES DECIDE TO RELEASE SESELJ WITHOUT CONSULTING HIM

ANOTHER ATTEMPT TO GRANT SESELJ PROVISIONAL RELEASE

After Seselj's health deteriorated, the judges have asked the Serbian and Dutch authorities to ensure conditions for Vojislav Seselj’s provisional release. Seselj has been charged with crimes against humanity in Croatia, Vojvodina and Bosnia and Herzegovina

PROSECUTION: SESELJ’S DEMAND FOR 12 MILLION EUROS ‘MERITLESS’

The prosecution recalls that the Serbian Radical Party leader has been lawfully detained, in line with the Tribunal's rules, stressing that he 'has never even tried' to comply with the conditions of provisional release. The accused has in fact rejected the judges' initiative to obtain provisional release for him. In the past 11 years the accused has served 54 months in prison for contempt of court. Bearing all that in mind, the prosecution holds that Seselj's request for 12 million euros as compensation for his groundless detention should be rejected as 'meritless'

PROCEDURE TO RELEASE SESELJ TERMINATED

After the accused Vojislav Seselj made it perfectly clear that he didn’t intend to made a written undertaking that he would comply with the Tribunal’s conditions, the Trial Chamber terminated the procedure for his provisional release pending the judgment for crimes against humanity in Croatia, Vojvodina and Bosnia and Herzegovina
