Seselj to face court action over killing of premier

Police in Serbia are bringing legal action against ultranationalist leader Vojislav Seselj and 44 other people for “incitement to terrorism and murder” over the March assassination of Serbian prime minister Zoran Djindjic, the interior minister revealed. Interior Minister Dusan Mihajlovic told reporters Tuesday that Seselj — who is already on trial for war crimes arising from the wars on the 1990’s — was being charged with inciting the two alleged ringleaders of the assassination plot to kill Djindjic, who was gunned down in Belgrade on March 12. Mihajlovic alleged that the Serb hardliner had incited Milorad Lukovic, also known as Legija, and Dusan Spasojevic, also known as Siptar, to kill Djindjic. Lukovic is still on the run while Spasojevic was shot dead by police in Belgrade last month after resisting arrest. Seselj surrendered to the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in February. The former politician pleaded not guilty last month to charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity, including persecution, extermination, murder and torture committed in Bosnia, Croatia and the northern Serbian province of Vojvodina during the Balkan wars.
