Milosevic Ally Commits Suicide at The Hague

 

The UN war crimes tribunal at The Hague in the Netherlands has announced that former Croatian Serbian leader Milan Babic has commited suicide whilst serving a 13-year sentence for crimes against humanity.

The tribunal said in a statement that Babic’s body was found last night, and also that "The Dutch authorities were called immediately. After conducting an investigation, they confirmed that the cause of death was suicide."

Babic was a political ally of Slobodan Milosevic, though he testified against him during Milosevic’s trial before The Hague. An inquiry into how an inmate under regular observation committed suicide has been opened.

Drugs are bad, mmmkay.

But crimes against humanity, those aren't so bad, as long as don't do drugs while commiting crimes against humanity. Because drugs are bad.

So when are the Croatian, Bosnian Muslim, Albanian and NATO war criminals going to face justice?

Oh right sorry, we are still meant to be pretending the Serbs are the devil.

This guy was Croatian, not Serbian.
As for crimes against humanity... did NATO forces commit genocide? Did they murder civilians under the hood of Ethnic Cleansing? No, that's propably why they won't be charged with crimes against humanity. As for your comment stating no other parties are standing trial. That's just wrong. There are Bosnians and Croats standing trial just as there are Serbians.

  nato innocent? Psht yea and im the easter bunny  
 
Bombing schools, hospitals, bridges, and trains, packed with civilians(especially trains FLEEING the bombing), is...?
Not a war crime?

Why isnt Clinton and others in his administration at the time of Bosnia, up on some charges?
You are aware they broke the arms embargo, and made weapon drops to the Muslim side?.. or are american war crimes justified and excusable?
Ever wonder why the US refuses to allow its people to be tried by international courts?

  Good Point.  
 
Whipd-kreem very good point.
That is just what I would like to see it is way over due, when a president or Pm has allowed something like that to happen it should be thoroughly checked out and they should lead by example.
