ICTY to consider concluding part of Milosevic trial

[JURIST] Following the latest delay [JURIST report] in the Slobodan Milosevic [JURIST news archive] war crimes trial, the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) [official website]) said Tuesday that it has ordered a hearing on November 29 to hear arguments on splitting the trial. The ICTY asked the prosecution and defense to prepare submissions on whether the court should deal separately with Milosevic's indictment [text] on the 1999 Kosovo conflict so that part of the trial could be concluded first. Milosevic has also been charged on separate indictments for wars in Crotia and Bosnia [indictment texts], but the cases were merged in 2002. Read the court's order and press release. AP has more.
