NEW TWIST IN THE ‘HARHOFF CASE’

The prosecution has filed a motion for a reconsideration of the decision to disqualify Judge Harhoff citing ‘fundamental errors of reasoning’. On the other hand, judges Antonetti and Lattanzi sought ‘clarification’ whether the report of the Trial Chamber’s presiding judge and the statement of the Danish judge had been taken into consideration when the decision was made. The disqualified judge also seeks ‘clarification’. The Tribunal’s vice-president has stayed the appointment of a new judge pending Antonetti’s and Lattanzi’s consultations with Seselj as to whether to “rehear the case or continue the proceedings”

PROSECUTION: DO NOT DISCLOSE CONFIDENTIAL MATERIAL TO SESELJ

DETENTION ‘COMPATIBLE’ WITH SESELJ’S HEALTH

A three member medical team set up on the orders of the Trial Chamber concluded that the medical facilities at the UN Detention Unit were ‘compatible’ with Vojislav Seselj’s health condition.
