In April 2006, the ICTY declared Kovacevic unfit to stand trial [JURIST report] on charges of war crimes [second amended indictment] for his part in a 1991 attack [BBC report] on the Croatian city of Dubrovnik. The ICTY said Serbia will now continue to monitor Kovacevic's condition in the hopes he can someday be declared fit to stand trial in Serbia. The Hague-based tribunal is currently trying to bring all its work to completion by 2010. Read the ICTY press release here.
