UN court acquits Serbia intelligence chiefs of war crimes

31.05.13 | |

Described by the BBC as "highly significant" and the New York Times as  "one of the most surprising verdicts" to have been issued by the ICTY, the acquittal of a leader of this seniority at the international criminal tribunals is unprecedented. Stanisic was the highest ranking Serb to have been tried for his alleged involvement in the civil war in the former Yugoslavia. It was a case seen by many as a case against Milosevic and Serbia, as well as his Chief of State Security.  His acquittal has a far reaching, historic importance, not only for the legacy of the ICTY, but, more importantly, for the people of the former Yugoslavia.
