BELGRADE, Nov. 2, 2017 (BETA) Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic said on Nov. 1 that the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia had not fulfilled its purpose and had not contributed to reconciliation in the region.

"I think that [the court] contributed to heightened tensions in the region. No-one can say that the Hague tribunal was objective to all the sides which participated in the conflict of the 1990s," Brnabic told reporters in Belgrade, ahead of a meeting with ICTY president Carmel Agius.
She said "Serbia absolutely had it the worst when it comes to the collective number of years of imprisonment of all those held accountable in The Hague, but also in the number of people who died while on trial in The Hague, which is unconscionable."

Brnabic asked what the conversation about the efficiency of the Serbian justice system was to look like in future when trials in The Hague, like the one against Vojislav Seselj, can take more than 13 years and end in acquittal.

Agius arrived in Belgrade to conduct preparations for a regular six-month report to the U.N. Security Council about the work of the ICTY. Chief prosecutor Serge Brammertz is also staying in Belgrade on Nov. 1 and 2.
