Mladic’s defence asks for delay of trial, saying it is still receiving new documents from the prosecution

The defence for Ratko Mladic asked for delay of the start of evidence hearing, underlining that it is receiving new documents from the prosecution.

Branko Lukic, Mladic’s lawyer said that on May 31 the defence received five documents which the prosecution plans to use when examining several first witnesses: “Proceeding to hear evidence from these witnesses beginning 25 June 2012, based on the foregoing circumstances, would be unreasonable, and would constitute undue prejudice to the Accused and would violate his right to a fair trial”.

He added that the start of the evidence hearing under these conditions represented “miscarriage of justice of the highest magnitude.”
