The Rule 98bis Decision in Milošević

The Milošević Trial

This chapter examines the meaning of the 2004 Decision on the Motion for Judgment of Acquittal in the Milošević trial. It argues that that the Decision was critical to re-legitimating the contentious proceedings. The value of the Decision lies in eschewing an incontrovertible verdict and drawing attention to the complexity of the ICTY's procedural and substantive law. By having reined in the theater of international justice that the trial had become, the Trial Chamber's preliminary assessment of the Prosecution's case reflects international adjudication at its best.

Keywords:   criminal trials, Slobodan Milošević, international adjudication, Rule 98bis Decision
