UN considering release of Milosevic documents

UN tribunal considering release of Milosevic documents

The United Nations International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) today announced that it is looking into publicly releasing confidential materials and documents from the case against the late Slobodan Milosevic, the court’s most notorious genocide suspect.

Those documents might be necessary for the Dutch authorities as they investigate Milosevic’s death, the Hague-based ICTY said.

The Tribunal formally closed the proceedings against Mr. Milosevic yesterday, and is conducting its own internal probe into his death. The late Yugoslav President was facing 66 counts in connection with numerous crimes committed in Kosovo, Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina from 1991 to 1999 when he was found dead in his cell on Saturday.

In a separate development, tribunal judges today convicted Enver Hadzihasanovic and Amir Kubura, both high level commanders in the Army of Bosnia and Herzegovina, sentencing them to five years and two-and-a-half years, respectively, for crimes committed in central Bosnia and Herzegovina in 1993 and the beginning of 1994.
