a plea to charges of genocide during his first appearance at the hague tribunal the former bosnian serb general called the accusations monstrous and of noxious the former army chief has been charged with eleven counts of war crimes including his part in the massacre of eight thousand muslims it's written itself in one thousand nine hundred five but it was arrested last thursday after sixteen years in hiding is handing over to the court was seen as a key condition before serbia could join the e.u. still there are many steps to be taken before membership and some experts say it's not always this complicated to join a group. those conditions don't need to be met if the e.u. likes you. and romania who have been for a very obvious critical reasons and didn't meet any particular conditions at all in so doing the real reason that serbia is outside the e.u. club as it were is that the serbian secession is province of course will. not be
1:13 pm
resolved that's the situation it still needs to be resolved and the e.u. prefers serbia to negotiate regarding that situation while it's on its knees which is a position that is the part it is very familiar with those original figure eight thousand came out and about from these are bigger islam is decided they were prepared in advance. thousands of people were hidden soldiers and drafted back into the. list forces without their families even being informed so there is certainly a great deal of exaggeration in the figure and the tribunal is socially justifying its existence it was set up by madeleine albright's to point an accusing finger at the serbs and so high the existence of the joint criminal conspiracy to destroy the state that the certain forms the state of yugoslavia over half the one half of the adult population of serbia died to form the male population of soviet guides or former yugoslavia which was destroyed by the west and the hague tribunal is there to create an entirely different picture it's the one time obey of europe where
