Vladimir Kršljanin, secretary of the International Committee „Slobodan Milošević“,

former ambassador and foreign relations assistant to President Milošević

February 2010

As the end of the ICTY works approaches, we can consider the statistics of its work as almost final. An UN SC working group (chaired by Austria) is preparing for the coming spring a draft resolution on residual mechanism (and its location and archives location and handling) of ICTY. The ICTY President Patrick Robinson expects that five remaining trials were to be completed during 2010, and three in the first half of 2011.  The remaining case, of Radovan Karadžić, was to be completed in late 2012.  With the redeployment of resources to the Appeals Chambers, he anticipated that all appeals would be completed in 2013, except for the Karadžić appeal, due to finish in February 2014. Two UN SC ‘technical’ resolutions adopted in 2009 on extension of the judges’ term of office opens the way that the next, ‘terminal’ resolution (on residual mechanisms) will set up the final days of the ICTY in accordance to Robinson’s predictions. In its resolutions 1503 (2003) of 28 August 2003 and 1534 (2004) of 26 March 2004, the Security Council called on ICTY to take all possible measures to complete investigations by the end of 2004, to complete all trial activities at first instance by the end of 2008, and to complete all work in 2010. The Security Council however, took note of the assessment by the ICTY in its Completion Strategy Report (S/2009/589) that the Tribunal will not be in a position to complete all its work in 2010. So, one can realistically expect that everything that ICTY intends to do after 31 December 2010 will be stipulated by the ‘terminal’ resolution as a part of residual mechanisms – meaning that the ICTY will gradually die until 2014, preserving after that time some mechanism to try the remaining accused – Mladic and Hadzic, if (and when) they will be arrested. Whether Russia will accept extension of ICTY’s work (in some reduced format) after 2010 as a part of ‘residual mechanism’ it is to be seen. Theoretically, Russia can insist that the problem is solved or at least reduced, by the transfer of cases to national jurisdictions. The problem for Russia to keep firm stance on the issue is the position of Serbia. It lacks active position due to present government’s view of EU integration as absolute priority. The only thing the Serbian government is attempting from time to time, at least in words, is to get convicted Serbs to be at some point transferred from EU to Serbian prisons.


Russia is preparing for the 2010 spring very seriously. In 2009 a conference on ICTY was organized by the Institute of Slavonic Studies of the Russian Accademy of Sciences. In January 2010 a professional debate on international courts was organized by the Diplomatic Academy of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affaires. Russian media, including the 1st Chanel of the state TV give publicity to ICTY, always with a critical note. Recently, they reported on absurds of the Seselj’s case, implying that eventual failure of the ICTY to end it soon by his release can force Russia to vote against extension of ICTY work after 2010. A 40 minutes documentary on Yugoslav crisis and ICTY will be filmed in March.


In the Defense Strategy of Russia, signed recently by President Medvedev, NATO enlargement and its AMD located on Russian borders are explicitely seen as treaths to Russian security. In the solution of presently worsened relations with NATO, reflected in the first place in the regions of Caucasus, Balkans and Central Asia, the behavior of NATO in Yugoslav crisis (and the works of ICTY) is the crucial argument for Russia.


In that light, revival of the International Committee „Slobodan Milošević“ is of great importance. Criminal consequences of ICTY works need to be exposed and its victims need to be protected.


If we look at the present situation of the ICTY cases, the situation is as follows:


There is only one case in the pre-trial phase: Tolimir. His trial is expected to start in February 2010.


There are only two indicted at large: general Ratko Mladić and Goran Hadžić.


There are 6 more sealed indictments, the existence of which ICTY denies. It is expected that they will be given – transferred to the former Yugoslav countries together with a number of cases in which ICTY performed investigation. The plan is that almost all the cases go to Sarajevo court (and it is expected that almost all cases to be transferred are against Serbs), since it is the only special court in the region with partially international personnel (courts in Belgrade and Zagreb are only monitored and supervised from abroad). That way, ICTY can continue living in Sarajevo. This can remind us the case of a Serb Dragutin Zelenović, who pleaded guilty at The Hague, only in order to avoid his case to be transferred to Bosnia, i.e. to avoid serving sentence in a Bosnian prison.


The remaining cases and detainees in The Hague are very important. As for Serbs, there is a group of the top political, military and police leadership of Serbia convicted for crimes in Kosovo (Šainović, Ojdanić, Pavković, Lazarević and Lukić) pending appeal and transfer to prisons. Mrkšić and Šljivančanin are expecting transfer to prisons. There are two cases on trial, potentially threatening to make a ground for revision of the judgment of ICJ in Bosnia vs. Serbia case: trial of general Momčilo Perišić, Head of VJ General Staff during the Bosnian war (Perišić later became member of DOS and in 2002 was arrested in flagranti with the CIA representative in Serbia) and the trial of Jovica Stanišić, head of the Serbian secret service whose ties with CIA were admitted by US side. From Serbia proper, there are also trials of police general Vlastimir “Rođa” Đorđević for Kosovo and the trail of Vojislav Šešelj, which is in the deadlock. As for the Bosnian Serbs, there are two important trials going on – of 7-member “Srebrenica group”, pending sentence and the common trial of Stojan Župljanin and Mićo Stanišić, which started recently. The trial of Radovan Karadžić ICTY considers as it’s been started, but after Karadžić boycotted its premature beginning (opening statement of the Prosecution) ICTY was forced to postpone its continuation for 1 March 2010 (the date which is still disputed). There are two very important trials of Croats going on. One is of generals Gotovina, Čermak and Markač, accused for “Operation Storm” and another is of Jadranko Prlić + 5 = complete political, military and police leadership of “Herzeg-Bosnia”, the Croatian entity in Western Herzegovina, drawn by the West into the Muslim-Croat Federation. One can expect that 3 top generals will not get extremely severe sentences, due to the well known US role in the Operation Storm. On the other hand, Herzeg-Bosnia leadership will be severely punished, due to its certain disobedience to the Western plans. It is worth mentioning also that Haradinaj et al. are pending appeal, so as the only two Macedonian indictees (accused of excessive force in suffocating the armed rebellion of Albanians in Aračinovo village).


For Serbia, the most dangerous thing in the remaining cases is an attempt to ‘synchronize’ cases of Stanišić, Perišić, Karadžić, Tolimir and 7-member “Srebrenica group” in order to fabricate evidence of Serbia’s participation in the “Srebrenica genocide”. The sudden attempt to adopt a resolution condemning the “Srebrenica genocide” in the Serbian Parliament has to be seen in that context. It has two aims – to further weaken Serbia and to abolish Republic of Srpska. Of course, all trials on Kosovo issue have to further back the “Kosovo independence”.


So, re-affirmation of Slobodan Milosevic and Serbian resistance in 1990s, abolishment of ICTY and its proceedings and verdicts are the key necessary elements of the Serbian liberation struggle.


Until that goal is reached, one has to expose all criminal elements of ICTY and to express appropriate solidarity and support to all of its targets and victims, no matter if they are at large, on trial or already serve the fabricated sentences.


Hunt on general Mladic needs to be condemned. Tripling the sentence to general Mrksic and colonel Sljivancanin on Vukovar by the Appeals Chamber needs to get appropriate publicity. Persons on trial or pending appeal – in the first place Serbian politician Vojislav Seselj, moved to The Hague just for being unpleasant on the Serbian political scene, President Karadzic, general Tolimir (head of RS military security and right hand of general Mladic), Ex-Head of the Serbian State Security Jovica Stanisic, FRY Vice Prime Minister Sainovic, three former Chiefs of the Yugoslav Army General Staff (Pavkovic, Ojdanic and Perisic), Kosovo hero general Lazarevic need solidarity, support and publicity.


Most of the convicted persons are being granted early release after serving 2/3 of their sentence. Those who served full sentence are in practice being released few months earlier, so that ICTY can say that all got early release. Sentences to Serb war prisoners are long and severe. They are all in foreign prisons forgotten, depraved of basic rights and left with almost no contacts with their families, who have no money for long trips to visit them. They all need solidarity contacts, care for their human rights and publicity. Among them are some who deserve special respect and urgent care:

– Milan Martić, President of the Republic of Serb Krajina, serving 35 years in Estonia,

– Momčilo Krajišnik, Speaker of the RS Parliament, serving 20 years in UK,

– Radoslav Brdjanin, RS Vice Prime Minister, serving 30 years in Denmark,

– gen. Stanislav Galić, commander of RS Army Sarajevo Romanija Corps, serving life in Germany,

– gen. Radislav Krstić, commander of RS Army Drina Corps, serving 35 years in UK,

– Milomir Stakić, mayor of Prijedor in RS, serving 40 years in France,

– Blagoje Simić, mayor of Bosanski Šamac in RS, serving 15 years in UK.


Summarizing its own activity, ICTY never gives statistics based on national/ethnic origin of its prisoners. However, since all objective observers are aware of ICTY’s clear anti-Serbian bias, most of the statistics presented here is based on national parameter. All the data were taken from the public sources, in the first place from ICTY’s own proceedings and archives, published on their web site,


Tables 1-3 show ICTY’s political bias in several levels. It is not only that two thirds of the accused are Serbs. They also die much more then the others. Actually, only they are being killed on arrest or die in prison under suspicious conditions, only they get inappropriate medical care, only they commit suicides. Sixteen killed Serbs are:

Slobodan Milošević, President of Serbia and FRY, died at The Hague,

Milan Babić, President of RSK, died at The Hague,

Vlajko Stojiljković, Serbian Minister of Interior, committed suicide before arrest,

gen. Momir Talić, Chief of the RS Army General Staff, died at The Hague,

gen. Djordje Djukić, RS Army, died at The Hague,

Slavko Dokmanović, mayor of Vukovar, died at The Hague,

Milan Kovačević, mayor of Prijedor, died at The Hague,

Miroslav Deronjić, mayor of Bratunac, died in prison in Sweden,

Željko Ražnatović “Arkan”, commander of Serb Volunteer Guard, assassinated before arrest,

Simo Drljača, died on arrest,

Dragan Gagović, died on arrest,

Janko Janjić, died on arrest,

Slobodan Miljković “Lugar”, assassinated before arrest,

Stevan Todorović, served 7 years in Spain, died after release,

Goran Borovnica, died before arrest and

Nikica Janjić, died before arrest.


Also, most of the top state officials accused are Serbs – and most of the perpetrators. Moreover, the Serbs are sentenced on much higher sentences then others. The unfinished trials will only increase these parameters of bias. On Serb detriment, of course.


Practically no politician nor civilian high state official among Croats, Muslims, Albanians and Macedonians is accused by ICTY, with few half-exceptions (Herzeg-Bosnia leadership, Haradinaj who was accused for the time when he was only a paramilitary commander and Macedonian interior minister Boškovski). But how else ICTY can treat “genocidal Serbs” if not by putting on trial SEVEN PRESIDENTS, ONE PARLIAMENTARY SPEAKER, THREE VICE PRIME MINISTERS, THREE DEFENSE AND INTERIOR MINISTERS, SIX CHIEFS OF ARMY GENERAL STAFF, ONE HEAD OF STATE SECURITY, EIGHTEEN GENERALS AND FIVE MAYORS!


Tables 4-8 give lists of all accused ethnic Serbs, Croats, Muslims, Albanians and Macedonians, respectively. Each Table gives name, category and position (the highest position in his career) of each accused, his sentence or the phase of the trial (GP means Guilty Plea) and his current location (* denotes those detained at The Hague; at the moment there are 24 Serbs, 9 Croats and 1 Macedonian).


Table 9 gives list of Serbs, currently serving their sentences, by country, together with their posts before arrest and the character of charges from their verdicts. Of course, all 22 of them serve sentences in the prisons of EU countries (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Norway, Spain and UK).


Table 10 gives the full picture of ICTY – all names of the accused distributed by nationality and category (rank), and with their present status indicated (at large, on trial, in prison, released, died).

Table 10. Accused by ICTY distributed by ethnicity, nationality and category (rank). Their present status is also indicated (at large – blue, on trial – red,  in prison – no color, acquitted – yellow, released – green, died – black). Four Croats from Herzeg-Bosnia are put in the Table in accordance with their formal functions, but in the rest of the statistics they were treated under category II, since Herzeg-Bosnia never developed the level of formal statehood as Republics of Srpska or Serb Krajina.
