Warmongerer Šešelj should go back to prison

Serge Brammertz, chief prosecutor at the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia in the Hague, has called for Serb ultra-nationalist Vojislav Šešelj - who is accused of war crimes - to be returned to jail. Brammertz said in the motion that Šešelj had violated the condition for his release after his return to Serbia. The conservative daily Večernji List agrees: "Since his release Vojislav Šešelj has continued to glorify crimes, insult victims and agitate. The prosecutors cite for example his scandalous words of congratulation to the Chetniks [Serb militia] on the 'liberation' of Vukovar made on November 18, the anniversary of the fall of Vukovar. Šešelj's Serbian Radical Party said in a press release that Šešelj will not respond to the Hague tribunal's panicked calls because it is a political order carried out in the name of the regimes in Belgrade an Zagreb."
