Seselj Contempt of Court Trial to Resume at ICTY

Vojislav Seselj is scheduled to appear once again in the contempt of court case before the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, ICTY.

The hearing is scheduled for April 20.

Seselj, the leader of the Serb Radical Party, SRS, is currently on trial for war crimes committed in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Croatia between 1991 and 1994.

At the same time, he is accused of disclosing information on 11 protected witnesses, including their real names, occupations and places of residence, in a book he authored while in detention.

This is the second time Seselj faces charges of contempt. On July 24, 2009, he was found guilty and sentenced to 15 months’ imprisonment for disclosing the names and other personal details of protected witnesses in a book he authored. The case is currently pending before the Appeals Chamber.

The trial against Seselj for war crimes will resume in May when the Trial Chamber will call its last witness.
