UN tribunal may release Milosevic documents

March 16, 2006 10:12 IST
The United Nations International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia is considering releasing confidential materials and documents from the case against Slobodan Milosevic to facilitate the inquiry by the Dutch authorities into his death.

The Tribunal on Tuesday formally closed the proceedings against Serbian leader Milosevic, the main suspect in the genocide of Muslims in Kosovo, but is conducting its own internal probe into his death.

Milosevic was facing 66 counts in connection with numerous crimes committed in Kosovo, Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina from 1991 to 1999 when he was found dead in his cell on Saturday.

In a separate development, tribunal judges yesterday convicted Enver Hadzihasanovic and Amir Kubura, both high level commanders in the Army of Bosnia and Herzegovina, sentencing them to 5 years and 2 and a half years, respectively, for crimes committed in central Bosnia and Herzegovina in 1993 and the beginning of 1994.
