Milosevic Hearing Adjourned by UN War Crimes Tribunal
The war crimes hearing against Slobodan Milosevic was adjourned Thursday after a hearing lasting less than an hour with its next session set for October 29.
The former Yugoslav president again refused to appoint a lawyer to represent him in the court which he considers has no legal status under international law.
The presiding British judge Richard May said the tribunal was appointing a legal representative for Milosevic, not as a defense counsel but to assist the court in future hearings.
During the hearing Milosevic condemned his conditions of detention in The Hague, describing them as a "massive violation" of his rights.
He said he was being kept in total isolation -- THE HAGUE (AFP)
