Preview

Since Miloševićs death, several new trials associated with his regime have begun at the ICTY. They involve principal members of Serbia's or the FRY's state apparatus engaged in the same JCE alleged against Milošević, and mostly build on evidence that was introduced in the Milošević trial. This chapter shows that the Prosecution's strategic choices in the post-Milošević trials have dissociated Serbian and FRY officials from the Srebrenica genocide, thus minimizing the Milošević regime's leadership role in and responsibility for crimes in Bosnia. These choices indicate a politicization of the judicial process—an effort to influence the way evidence should be interpreted outside and beyond the courtroom.
