Serb nationalist Seselj jailed for contempt of court
Text size Aa Aa

The jailed Serbian nationalist, Vojislav Seselj has been convicted of contempt of court by the Yugoslav war crimes tribunal.

He was sent down for 18 months for revealing the names of protected witnesses in a book he wrote.

Seselj has been incarcerated since 2003 as he is facing charges of inciting violence against non-Serbs.

The written judgement said Seselj’s actions could discourage witnesses from testifying by undermining their “confidence in the tribunal’s ability to guarantee the effectiveness of protective measures.”
