War crimes court says evidence proves Seselj guilt

War crimes court says evidence proves Seselj guilt

Yugoslav war crimes tribunal prosecutors say their evidence proves Serb ultranationalist Vojislav Seselj was responsible for atrocities committed by Serb militias in Croatia and Bosnia in the early 1990s.
Prosecutors began presenting their closing statements Monday in Seselj's trial, more than nine years after he surrendered to the tribunal vowing to prove his innocence.
Prosecutors called 72 witnesses to underpin their allegation that Seselj was part of a criminal plot led by late Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic to create a new Serb superstate out of parts of the former Yugoslavia.
The 57-year-old is expected to plead his innocence in his closing statement next week.
