In its closing arguments, the ICTY prosecution requested 28 years imprisonment for Vojislav Seselj, stating that he had been proven guilty of war crimes in the former Yugoslavia.

“We request that the Trial Chamber find the accused guilty on all nine counts of the indictment since it has been proven he is guilty of serious crimes, both in their scope and heinous nature,” said Mathias Marcussen, Chief Prosecutor for the trial.

The ICTY filed charges against Vojislav Seselj, leader of Serbian Radical Party, in 2003 for persecutions on political, racial or religious grounds, deportation and inhumane acts as well as for violations of the customs of war during conflicts in the former Yugoslavia from 1991 until 1993.
