SESELJ’S MOTION REFERRED TO MECHANISM

CARLA DEL PONTE WON’T BE INVESTIGATED

Judge Moloto today issued a decision rejecting Radovan Karadzic’s motion for the appointment of amicus curiae to investigate allegations of contempt of court against former Chief Prosecutor Carla del Ponte in 2004 when she shared a ‘confidential list’ of Slobodan Milosevic’s potential defense witnesses with a US legal team

‘DEL PONTE CASE’: MERON PUTS BALL INTO MERON’S COURT

Theodor Meron, the Tribunal’s President, has dismissed Karadzic’s request for the appointment of a special chamber to consider the possible culpability of Carla Del Ponte, citing lack of jurisdiction. Since Karadzic has in the meantime submitted the same request to the Mechanism for International Criminal Tribunals, the ‘Del Ponte case’ was thus referred to its president: Judge Meron

‘DEL PONTE CASE’ RETURNED TO PRESIDENT MERON

The special chamber appointed after Radovan Karadzic filed a motion accusing Carla Del Ponte of contempt of court concluded it lacked jurisdiction to consider the request referring the case involving the former chief prosecutor to Judge Meron, who is the president of both the Tribunal and the Mechanism for International Criminal Tribunals

PROSECUTION: IF DEL PONTE IS GUILTY, KARADZIC IS GUILTY TOO

The prosecution contends that Carla del Ponte did not commit contempt of court when she discussed Milosevic’s confidential witness list with US diplomats. If the specially appointed chamber concludes otherwise, the same procedure should apply to Karadzic and his defense team since they disclosed in public the cable with the purportedly confidential information on witnesses

SESELJ ‘WAIVES HIS RIGHT TO APPEAL’

As Vojislav Seselj has twice refused to obey the Trial Chamber’s orders instructing him to submit an abridged appellate brief, the judges have concluded that he has waived his right to appeal in the second contempt of court case in which he was sentenced to 18 months in prison. The appellate judges will thus consider just the appeal filed by the amicus curiae prosecutor who wants Seselj’s sentence doubled

SESELJ WILL HAVE TO REDO HIS APPEAL

If he wants to appeal against the judgment sentencing him to 18 months for contempt of court, Vojislav Seselj will have to re-file his appellate brief, which must not exceed 9,000 words. Seselj’s initial brief, returned by the Appeals Chamber, contains more than 33,000 words
