Slobodan Milošević freed of war crimes charges by ICTY 10 years after dying in his prison cell in Hague

14.08.2016, Hague.

Back in March 2016 former Yugoslavia President Slobodan Milošević was freed of charges brought against him, but Western media doesn’t report on this, said Italian politician Giulietto Chiesa, Italian channel Pandora.TV reports.

Giulietto Chiesa informs that on March 24 the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia freed Milošević of charges, but barely anybody knows it to this day, since Western media do not talk about it. The same tribunal sentenced the first President of Republika Srpska Radovan Karadžić to 40 years of prison for war crimes.

The International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, which earlier claimed Milošević was guilty of war crimes, now claims that it has not enough proof of his guilt.

For those who understand this, who understand what this is about, these news are a ‘bomb”. Which must make at least all Western political leaders to ask for forgiveness or put them under the trial of the same Tribunal,” Chiesa said.

On May 27, 1999, the UN and NATO accused Slobodan Milošević of war crimes. On October 5, 2000, as a result of “bulldozer revolution”, Milošević was overthrown. On April 1, 2000, as a result of a special operation Milošević was arrested and handed in secret to the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia on June 28.

In February 2002 Slobodan Milošević made a speech in the Hague Tribunal, in which he claimed he was not guilty, refuted several dozen charges made against him and proved that the trial against him is illegal based on international law.

On March 11, 2006, Milošević died in his prison cell before the trial was over.
