Hague Tribunal Clears Seselj Of War Crimes Charges

Serbian nationalist Vojislav Seselj has been found not guilty of war crimes and crimes against humanity relating to the Balkan wars of the 1990s. The presiding judge of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia declared Seselj was now "a free man." He was not at the March 31 hearing, as the tribunal had given him leave to return to Serbia for cancer treatment in 2014. In a news conference in Belgrade after the verdict, Seselj had harsh words for the process mounted against him. (RFE/RL's Balkan Service)
