Fifthly:

Responsibility of the Prosecutor and the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia

The Statute of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia at the Hague provides that the Prosecutor shall be independent in the exercise of his/her duties. As such, the Prosecutor’s Office must extend its publicly announced and currently underway investigation of possible crimes perpetrated by Serbs in Kosovo so as to include war crimes committed by the political and military leadership of NATO and its responsible personnel during the recent bombing. The above people have committed the aforementioned offenses willfully and wantonly, and consequently, an investigation must be initiated to determine and detail the criminal responsibility of each respective individual involved.
