ICTY releases confidential Milosevic documents to investigators

[JURIST] Judges at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia [official website] on Thursday ordered that confidential materials in the Slobodan Milosevic case [ICTY case backgrounder] be made available to an ICTY inquiry team and Dutch authorities investigating the circumstances of the former Yugoslav president's death last weekend. Under the order [text], case materials that had been kept confidential because of personal information about Milosevic will be provided to aid the investigators but the information will remain otherwise confidential.

The decision comes after ICTY President Judge Fausto Pocar directed [order, PDF; JURIST report] the court's Trial Chamber to consider varying or lifting protective measures applied to certain materials in the Milosevic case. Read the ICTY press release.
