ICTY refuses to free Vojislav Seselj

23 July 2014 by IJT

The International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) said on 17 July that it had decided to “terminate the process of provisional release” envisaged for the Serbian Radical Party (SRS) leader Vojislav Seselj during the last weeks [IJT-163]

The court made its decision after seeking opinions from Serbia and the Netherlands, it said, without giving further details. Quoted by BIRN agency, Zoran Krasic, a member of his legal team, said that it was “one of many illegal and wrong decisions in Seselj’s case”, which include the long period spent in detention since he surrendered in 2003.
