ICTY: Serbia Reported to the Security Council for Noncompliance

On June 17th, Judge Fausto Pocar, President of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, wrote current Security Council President Zalmay Khalilzad, U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations, to report Serbia's noncompliance with a Trial Chamber order in the case Prosecutor v. Milutinovic. (ICTY press release here; UN News Centre report here; Reuters story here.) The court order required Serbia to serve a summons and to take other steps to ensure that General Aleksander Dimitrijevic, former head of the Yugoslav's Army Security Administration, appear at trial and give testimony in the case.
