THE HAGUE, Netherlands — Judges at the Yugoslav war crimes tribunal have ordered the resumption of a Serb nationalist’s trial almost a year after it was suspended amid claims of witness intimidation.
Vojislav Seselj is accused of using hate-laced speeches to incite atrocities by Serb forces in Bosnia and Croatia in conflicts as the former Yugoslavia crumbled in the 1990s.
The leader of the Radical Party in Serbia, Seselj has been in custody since he surrendered in February 2003.
The U.N. tribunal said in a statement Wednesday that the trial, which was halted on Feb. 11, will start again Jan. 12.
The statement says the decision follows “new information” sent to judges, but does not elaborate.
