TRIBUNAL DENYING SESELJ'S CLAIMS
Seselj's claims that the Tribunal "has deprived him of his right to vote" and is "preventing him from contacting his family" are incorrect. Thirteen detainees from Serbia and Montenegro will vote at the polling station in the UN Detention Unit in Scheveningen on 13 July.
Jim Landale, spokesperson in the Tribunal
Vojislav Seselj has not been "deprived of his right to vote" and has not been "denied the right" to have regular contact with his family, said Jim Landale, the Tribunal’s spokesperson, at a press conference today.
Landale said he was forced to issue this statement by the "misleading information" appearing in the Serbian media over the past few days to the effect that the Tribunal "has deprived Seselj of his right to vote" in the upcoming presidential elections and "prevented him from contacting his family."
None of this is true, Landale stated, adding that Seselj has deprived himself of the right to vote by refusing to fill in the voter registration form given to all detainees from Serbia and Montenegro by their embassy in The Hague. SENSE has learned that 13 detainees in the UN Detention Unit have filled in the form. Milosevic, just like Seselj, is not among them.
