Milosevic has brought charges against the Netherlands

Ex-president of Yugoslavia, Slobodan Milosevic, decided to have a trial with the Netherlands. Milosevic’s lawyers brought charges to the European court for Human Rights in Strasbourg. Milosevic charged the Netherlands with the violation of the European convention of human rights, complaining that it was allowed to detain Milosevic and put him on trial at the UN Tribunal.

Milosevic’s lawyers asserted, he could not be kept on custody in the Netherlands, since his arrest in Belgrade was the infringement of the Yugoslavian legislation. They insist on the issue of illegitimacy of the Tribunal itself, for it was set up pursuant to the decision of the UN Security Council, not of the General Assembly’s. Like the lawyers believe, this makes the agreement between the government of Holland and the UN miserable (the Tribunal possesses the international jurisdiction).

It is not known, if the court considers Milosevic’s suit or not. The thing is that the court for human rights that is based in Strasbourg, considers the suits only against those, who signed the European convention – against the Netherlands in this case. Yugoslavia did not sign the European convention. Well, Milosevic has drawn the attention to himself again anyway.
