Prosecutors want to reopen Milosevic case to present more evidence

[JURIST] Prosecutors at the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia [official website, JURIST news archive] want to reopen their case against former Yugloslav President Slobodan Milosevic [JURIST news archive] to present new evidence, including a video of the Srebrenica killings [JURIST report] that has resulted in several arrests [JURIST report]. The defense has denied allegations about Srebrenica [JURIST report], and while the video was shown on cross-examination, it cannot be used as evidence against Milosevic unless the prosecution's case is reopened. Prosecutors said their request would add six hearing days to a trial that has seen numerous delays, largely because of Milosevic's health problems [JURIST report]. Reuters has more.
