The defendant Slobodan Milosevic’s case is heard in portions excerpted from his two-day opening statement. He is serving as his own lawyer and contends that the United Nations' tribunal is illegal and that NATO committed war crimes in Serbia while he himself was a peacemaker.
Former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic went on trial before the United Nations' International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in The Hague, Netherlands. Milosevic is facing 66 counts of war crimes during the 1991-99 Balkan wars, including genocide (in Bosnia) and crimes against humanity, in three indictments covering Kosovo, Bosnia, and Croatia. His trial is expected to take two years. close
