WHY JUDGE NIANG OPPOSED SESELJ’S RELEASE

Last week the Senegalese judge opposed the decision to provisionally release Vojislav Seselj.

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?

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'
