THE HAGUE, Netherlands — In a sweeping defeat for U.N. prosecutors, the Yugoslav war crimes tribunal acquitted Serbian ultranationalist politician Vojislav Seselj on Thursday of all nine counts alleging that he was responsible for or incited atrocities by Serbian paramilitaries in the wars in Bosnia and Croatia in the early 1990s.
Seselj was not present at the court in The Hague for the hearing as Presiding Judge Jean-Claude Antonetti declared: “Following this verdict, Vojislav Seselj is now a free man.”
