“On Wednesday, a court in The Hague sentenced Vojislav Seselj, an ultra-nationalist politician in Serbia, to 10 years in prison for inciting crimes against humanity.
A staunch ally of Serbia’s former leader Slobodan Milosevic, Seselj gave a speech in 1992 that led to atrocities against members of the ethnic Croatian minority living in northern Serbia, presiding judge Theodor Meron ruled Wednesday. ‘Seselj’s speech incited violence that denigrated and violated the right to security of members of the Croatian population,’ the judge told the court.
But the far-right ideologue seemed unfazed and dismissed the ruling as ‘illegal.’
I am ‘proud of all the war crimes and crimes against humanity that were attributed to me, and I am ready to repeat them in the future,’ the now-convicted war criminal told the Associated Press in a phone call.” (Newsweek)
