8:03 am
of it if continues to maintain his innocence and he's expressed hold that has the time soon it will finally clear of the matter is how to build clear his name of these allegations on a solo but only still means to be resolved in this case what's been the family's reaction to it all while there in the number of issues to be resolved in this case the earlier trial that was held in two thousand and eight and that led to an acquittal verdict in two thousand and nine was criticized for well sort of a week abbott in space back then investigators were at use of using a lot of circumstantial evidence that failed to persuade the jury and. investigators still have a lot to do to make sure that they have solid case and piece time around now the family on the political. side through its lawyer. even though
8:04 am
even despite the arrest of the suspect the suspect who killed a person please. i wasn't allowed to kill her off on a political scare they believe that these these these doesn't do much for the i rather loosen up the case as far as they believe that it will only be sold one the monster minds are arrested one big people who ordered this crime who prayed for this murder brought to books and so far as of now there are no versions voiced by investigators who may be behind these very high profile murder now if the facts agency just a couple of minutes ago managed to get in touch with her off on the. stand he again reiterated this point that the family holds that not only the executioner is all. about the actual masterminds standing behind his prime will be brought to justice
8:05 am
now ask what its time line be investigation for this case has been extended until september so it is likely that the good will have to wait at least a couple of months before any new trial begins. many thanks for the update on the teasels on the boy days of the latest in the political sky case many facts. now the european court of human rights is a ruled russia's prosecution of formal oil magnate kosky was not politically motivated the judge's instructions did however find that his rights were violated cheering his arrest in two thousand and three when the yanks hold of the oil as you call them once russia's richest man is currently in jail for a bezel months on money laundering the latest from our correspondent tess all sylvia tessa how did the european court explain its ruling in this high profile case. will get as you have to be
8:06 am
a european court of human rights did which took place by thought it was for years that the small city should was politically motivated will be cited. a lot of incontestable proof basically the lawyers the protocols they were not able to provide the sufficient proof the support sufficient evidence of these claims to back up these claims that it has to be said though that when he was arrested in two thousand and three he was financing opposition political parties and upward into other calls me and his supporters it was because of his political staff that he was arrested in the first place now as of today though the european court of human rights again has injected those plans and has they got to rest for the time being now on the other point though that difficulty has brought to the court he was claiming that his rights have been byways with regard to his pretrial detention where he was detained without sufficient justification as well as the visions of the unsanitary conditions with the list up to now on those points the court had agreed with her post yet they had ordered the i'm also put to pay twenty four
8:07 am
thousand euros or thirty five thousand dollars in damages however the of moscow court said that they will appeal this ruling should they find themselves to do so so the these two points are the latest from the european court of human rights of course such as this one who just comes the day of the whole book called ski a file for her role in the moscow court on monday plagiarism but. that's right we're out as of today be a moscow court has acknowledged that they had received this request and they are reviewing it and it has to be said again that this isn't the first time that he has applied or requested for parole he had done so in two thousand and eight whether that was rejected but to give a background since two thousand and three he was convicted twice and he is scheduled to be released in the twenty sixteen how his lawyers had said that he has every right to a secret world at this point having served more than half of his sentence already you know courting to the court they will be reviewing this and it will try to come up with a response as swiftly as possible and we can expect this in about two weeks time if
8:08 am
indeed kind of calls he will be given this parole ok all of these tests are female reporting for most they many times about. so they had few. you on the program best friends of the food and wars on american soldiers witnessed years of bloodshed in cruelty tells all t. the stories that was censored from us this is that it's. just a serbian the court has rejected the extradition appeal of europe's most wanted war crime suspects for mobiles in general rather have not it is challenged we will during the massacre of muslims in ninety to ninety five prosecutors say. they have to be stripped off to the hague as soon as possible wolf for more on this cross to of course but i think a lot of the who's in belgrade or sort of movements. be it pill has been rejects love this expect now. well really pretty much nothing but an
8:09 am
extradition of course there procedural steps that remain to be followed is that the justice minister has to sign the extradition request that was granted by the judges here in the special court where my beach has been ever since his arrest and as soon as that is done he would be put on the first plane abound to lourdes the hague and no appeals basically doesn't have any more chances of an appeal despite the fact that his lawyer did file for an independent medical examination saying that the medical exam provided by the court was not objective and that his health condition is so poor that he will not be able to stand trial or even live to see his trial if and when years transported to the hague but we do know that despite the fact that official belgrade has hailed the arrest the brother in law vision of course has welcomed it as well as your various european officials because of course for serbia catching article modish was one of the top conditions for
8:10 am
a potential entrance into the european and as a result of course access to billions of dollars worth of grant money for the people here in serbia. but the rest of it from what it is a betrayal because for them despite the fact he is a general and he did participate in the war he's a national hero not a criminal. or a tacit most public opinion and. people better believe that he'll get a fair trial one sees in the hague. well the people we managed to speak to do say that despite the fact the hague war crimes tribunals or the i c t y as it's known has been established as a legal tool for dealing with crimes committed throughout the balkan wars of the one nine hundred ninety s. not many people here in serbia believe that in their specific cases the hague tribunal is an objective tool they see it more is a political one not a legal one because for them it seems that the courts are biased against serbia and
8:11 am
this of course is supported by some evidence you have people like that on the last of it out of a crowd it's now up a lot of it and various other bosnian generals are guerrilla leaders across liberation army members all of those who either of voided a trial altogether or were completely acquitted of all charges by that same tribunal so for the people here in serbia extraditing wattage to the hague will mean he will not get a fair trial. bringing justice to thousands of victims that's one self-proclaimed success of the international criminal tribunal for the former yugoslavia and it's ready to deliver some more serbia prepares to extradite former bosnian serb army chief that's going live each day he's accused of crimes against humanity and order in the one nine hundred ninety five massacre in the village of city but he needs. despite living on the run for sixteen years and having suffered
8:12 am
two strokes the sixty nine year old general has been deemed fit enough to stand trial and that one person we have spoken to police will get a fair trial there certainly a lot of evidence to back up the serbs distrust of the i c t y so what do the people here based their judgment on a lot of people here in serbia are skeptical about the some of the practices of the high tribunal in some of its record for instance because slobodan milosevic died in prison without the conviction then son with torrijos war criminals that are generally knowledged as a war criminals here in serbia but i deny from course of all like some muslim commanders have actually been acquitted after. their thoughts witnesses or after the tribunals simply concluded that there was not enough evidence karajan
8:13 am
there isn't but only means the only example take current cost of a prime minister. has been accused by the council of europe of being in charge of an organ trafficking group and still remains in his post but in general nasser or h. was known among serb residents of the district it's tipping it's a vampire for allegedly cutting the throats of thousands of civilians he walked free cleared of all charges and former military leaders several high level of each accused of mass murders during the balkan war of the one nine hundred ninety s. enter politics i think also of what it justice. this many suggest is a very clear indicator that the hague tribunal is being used as a political tool not a legal one part of it was a part of the common cause of your trouble or is it justice or something else events that happened in the balkans with the question of law. geopolitics or
8:14 am
someone else's interests i believe that all the peoples of former yugoslavia of victims very briefly let ourselves be involved in a war in the twentieth century for the sign for the sake of foreign interests and no one emerged as a winner of the balkan crisis was created much earlier which is long been unfolding before our eyes and it has nothing to do with law or justice and the law this tribunals is going to provide a cover for it europe state justice is accused of turning a blind eye just release opinions and has been for some time i'm not at all surprised because when the law of conflict was added it the western media including the british media was far from object to. well understand why the serbian people demonstrated against the rest of my luggage because they live across them to the fact that the western media always gave serbia a bad name during the conflict and the o.c.
