Šešelj sues Hague Tribunal for damaging his human rights

Vojislav Šešelj has filed a request for the Hague Tribunal to pay him damages worth EUR 2mn for violating his basic human right during detention.

The leader of the opposition Serb Radical Party (SRS) has been detained at the Hague Tribunal since he voluntarily traveled there in early 2003. He is accused of committing war crimes, and was put on trial in late 2007.

Šešelj is requesting EUR 100,000 more in damages because the tribunal refused to give him materials “in a language he understands (i.e., Serbian) and printed on paper”, and an equal amount for “the many years of violations of his right to legal assistance amounting to EUR 200,000”.
