[JURIST] Prosecutors have dropped objections to the release of four high ranking Serbian officials ahead of their trial for war crimes, allowing them to return to Belgrade as early as today. The four include Milan Milutinovic, a former Serbian president under Slobodan Milosevic, along with Nikola Sainovic, Dragoljub Ojdanic and Vladimir Lazarevic. It is common for the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia [official website] to allow defendants to remain free pending trial when they are not considered either a danger to others or an escape risk.
