The Milošević Trial

Harmen van der Wilt

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the Prosecution's use of the doctrine of joint criminal enterprise (JCE) to hold Milošević responsible for genocide. The choice of JCE relaxed the burden on the Prosecution to prove that Milošević harbored a special intent to destroy a group in whole or in part; under JCE, simple knowledge could suffice. However, the use of JCE thwarted the Prosecution's previous efforts to portray Milošević as the spider at the center of the web, who acted in concert with the Bosnian Serb leadership to plan, prepare, and orchestrate atrocities.
