LILIC’S EVIDENCE POSTPONED UNTIL 1 MAY 2007
With a majority of votes, the judges granted the prosecution's motion to postpone until next week the testimony of former FRY president at the trial of six Serbian officials charged with Kosovo crimes. The Appeals Chamber dismissed the prosecution's appeal against the Trial Chamber’s decision to remove General Wesley Clark from the prosecution witness list because of unacceptable terms set by the US Government

Former FRY president Zoran Lilic was due to begin his testimony at the trial of six Serbian political, military and police officers, but will not take the stand until Tuesday, 1 May 2007. The defense was against the Trial Chamber granting permission for Lilic’s testimony and wanted the Chamber to make the prosecution rest its case. The judges accepted the prosecution’s explanation, with a majority of votes. The prosecution described Lilic as an “important and unique witness” who was “willing to testify” but was unable to appear in the courtroom this week because of health problems.
If he does appear in the courtroom next week, Zoran Lilic will be the last prosecution witness to take the stand at the trial of Milan Milutinovic, Nikola Sainovic, Dragoljub Ojdnic, Nebojsa Pavkovic, Vladimir Lazarevic and Sreten Lukic. In the meantime, the prosecution's appeal against the Trial Chamber's decision to disallow Wesley Clark’s testimony was dismissed. The Trial Chamber did not want him to testify because the US Government had imposed restrictions on the cross-examination by the defense counsel of the former commander of NATO forces in Europe.
