Serbia: Radical party's Seselj turned away by Hrtkovci on anniversary of notorious speech

Serbia, Hrtkovci
May 6, 2018 at 15:15 GMT +00:00 · Published

Serbian Radical Party leader Vojislav Seselj was stopped by authorities in Jarak on Sunday, being barred from entering Hrtkovci village where he intended to join a rally on the 26th anniversary of his infamous speech, allegedly asking for desolation and banishment of Croatians in then ethnically-mixed village.

In The Hague, there were witnesses who claimed that at the [1992 Hrtkovci] rally, I demanded the killing of children from mixed marriages and many other craziness,” he said as he addressed journalists.

"It was within the anti-Serbian [agenda]," he added.

Some opposition fractions had allegedly requested the rally be banned.

In April, a UN court found Seselj guilty of crimes against humanity following an appeal hearing in The Hague.

He was then sentenced to ten years in prison though Seselj did not have to spend time in jail as his time in the custody of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) during his trial from February 2003 to November 2014, was taken into account.
