Serbia Slams Hague Tribunal at UN Debate
Serbian President Tomislav Nikolic described the Hague war crimes court as a biased “inquisition” during a UN General Assembly debate that was boycotted by the US as inflammatory.
At the UN debate on Wednesday about the role of international war crimes courts, organised by the current Serbian president of the assembly, Vuk Jeremic, the Belgrade leadership took the opportunity to attack the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, ICTY, which it believes is biased against Serbs.
Nikolic said that the ICTY was unfair because of its “systematic atmosphere of lynch-mobbing of everything that is Serbian”, which made reconciliation in the Balkans even harder.
“ICTY trials will never reach the real truth, that is why the reconciliation will not be real and honest,” he said.
Belgrade was angered by last year’s war crimes acquittal of two Croatian generals, Ante Gotovina and Mladen Markac.
Nikolic also cited war crimes trial defendant Vojislav Seselj, the former leader of the Serbian Radical Party, of which Nikolic was once a member, as an example of unfair treatment.
“Vojislav Seselj has been in The Hague for 11 years, which is a precedent in legal history,” Nikolic said.
But Ranko Vilovic, Croatia’s representative at the UN, said the ICTY deserved support.
“Croatia, as a victim of aggression, has strongly supported the work of the ICTY… Maybe we didn’t always agree with some decisions made, but we always supported the work,” said Vilovic.
The US boycotted the debate, alongside Canada and Jordan, describing it as “unbalanced” and “inflammatory”.
Erin Pelton, spokesperson for the U.S. mission to the United Nations, said international courts had been “critical to ending impunity and helping these countries chart a new, more positive future”.
“We regret in particular that the way today’s thematic debate and the related panel discussion are structured fail to provide the victims of these atrocities an appropriate voice,” she said.
The debate started with opening remarks from Jeremic, who said that “it is finally time to tell the truth about international tribunals”.
“I deeply believe that there should not be taboo topics among UN states,” Jeremic said.
But UN secretary-general Ban Ki-moon, who spoke right after Jeremic, defended the idea of international war crimes courts.
“We cannot expect human rights to be respected if we don’t support the international justice system,” he said.
The Serb member of the tripartite Bosnian presidency however expressed concerns about the ICTY’s recent acquittals of the two Croatian generals, three Kosovo Liberation Army commanders and a former Yugoslav Army general.
“Dissatisfaction with [the court’s] verdicts exists within all three nations in Bosnia and Herzegovina and this has been increased following the recent three ICTY verdicts in particular,” said Nebojsa Radmanovic.
The debate was briefly interrupted when a representative of an organisation representing wartime victims from the Bosnian towns of Srebrenica and Zepa, Munira Subasic, was ejected for attempting to show a banner describing Bosnia’s Serb-run entity Republika Srpska as genocidal, according to media reports.
The controversial debate provoked the Croat member of the Bosnian presidency, Zeljko Komsic, to cancel a planned visit to Belgrade, saying that the Serbian president had offended wartime victims.
Nikolic was also criticised in Belgrade by the Serbian Liberal Democratic Party, which argued that his speech was “insincere and harmful toward Serbian national interests”.
Despite the criticism however, Jeremic was convinced that the debate was a success.
Nikolic wrote a document on 42 pages for Debate on Hague Tribunal at UN
Representatives of fifty countries shall speak today in a public debate dedicated to the work of the Hague Tribunal (ICTY) scheduled by the UN General Assembly President Vuk Jeremic. Among speakers there shall be Serbia President Tomislav Nikolic but not representatives of the USA and the Hague Tribunal.
The meeting shall be opened by Vuk Jeremic. Then the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon shall address the participants. After that the debate shall begin and the first speaker shall be Serbia President Tomislav Nikolic.
‘His speech is written on 42 pages and that document shall remain in the UN archive. In it he shall prove that that the process preceding establishment and establishment of the Hague Tribunal were not in line with the law’, Nikolic’s Advisor Oliver Antic said.
The countries that announced their participation are Russia, China, Japan, Australia, Switzerland, Croatia, India, Argentina, Uruguay, Chile, Venezuela, Albania, New Zealand. Bangladesh, Egypt, South Africa, the EU representative, Turkey, Brazil, Pakistan, Colombia, Palestine…
The President of the UN General Assembly Vuk Jeremic scheduled the debate after the Hague Tribunal had released Croatian generals Gotovina and Merkac. Jeremic says that there were strong pressures that the debate is given up.
The first speaker at the panel discussion called ‘Justice’ shall be former commander of the UNPROFOR for Bosnia/Herzegovina, the retired general Louis MacKansie. Apart him another speakers shall be Charles Jalloh, Professor in Law at the Pittsburgh University, Professor John of the Michigan University and Savo Strbac, President of the Veritas.
Strbac says that it cannot be expected that after this debate the court rulings are changed, but the conclusions of the debate may be useful to courts where cases are being led.
Representatives of the Mother of Srebrenica Association have also gone to New York. They shall be allowed to attend the public debate although that association is not registered as a non-government organization to the UN.
