Prosecution Case Ends In Miloševic Trial

Prosecution Case Ends In Miloševic Trial At UN War Crimes Tribunal

The United Nations war crimes tribunal for the former Yugoslavia confirmed today that prosecutors have closed their case in the trial of Slobodan Miloševic, ex-President of Yugoslavia.

The International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia ( ICTY), sitting in The Hague, the Netherlands, accepted the prosecution's decision to end its case earlier than originally scheduled.

It also decided to move the start of Mr. Miloševic's defence case to 8 June to take account of the prosecution's move and Mr. Miloševic's ill-health. He will be given 150 days to present his case.

Mr. Miloševic is facing charges of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes for events in Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Kosovo during the 1990s.
