The International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia ruled Friday that lawyers appointed by the court last week to represent former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic in his war crimes trial can appeal their assignment. The lawyers requested permission to appeal Thursday, after Milosevic refused to cooperate with them (see this Paper Chase report). The tribunal appointed defense counsel for Milosevic, who had been representing himself, after deciding his self-representation was threatening his health and the efficiency of the trial.
