Croatia has banned the entry into its territory acquitted by the Hague Tribunal, šešelj

The Croatian authorities announced on Thursday 31 March that banned the entry into its territory of the ICTY acquitted the leader of the Radical party of Serbia Vojislav šešelj, according to the European media.

This decree was circulated by the Ministry of internal Affairs of the country, reports «Interfax-Ukraine».

Earlier, Prime Minister of Croatia Tihomir Oreskovic has strongly criticized the ICTY acquitted of the crime in the šešelj case.

«This verdict is a disgrace. This defeat of the Hague court and the prosecution,» he said to journalists.

As reported, the ICTY recognized Seselj is innocent of all charges.

«Vojislav šešelj is now a free man,» said judge Jean-Claude Antonetti.

Šešelj was accused of war crimes and crimes against humanity, committed between August 1991 and September 1993 against the non-Serb population of Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Serbian province of Vojvodina.

The defendant was not present at the sentencing. In November 2014, he was released for treatment in Serbia after he was diagnosed with cancer. Subsequently he refused to return to the Hague despite the demands of the ICTY.

Šešelj surrendered voluntarily and was detained in the detention centre of the ICTY since 2003.
