Šešelj’s release request was rejected by Hague Tribunal

The Hague Tribunal has rejected Serb Radical Party (SRS) leader Vojislav Šešelj request to be temporarily released.

Šešelj on Wednesday entered a plea on contempt of court charges and filed the motion for temporary release.

Judge O-Gon Kwon said that the reason the court had rejected the request was the fact that the trial chamber Šešelj had submitted the request to was not competent to decide on it.

According to the judge, the SRS leader needs to submit his release request to the trial chamber in charge of the main proceeding against him for crimes against non-Serbs in Croatia, Vojvodina and Bosnia-Herzegovina from 1991 until 1993.
