Ex-Rebel Croatian Serb Leader Convicted at Hague

The Hague war crimes tribunal convicted ex-rebel Croatian Serb leader Milan Babic Wednesday of persecuting Croats in a Serb campaign to seize territory in Croatia in 1991-92. Babic, former prime minister in the breakaway Krajina Serb republic after Croatia declared independence from Yugoslavia in 1991, pleaded guilty to a crime against humanity in a plea agreement with prosecutors at the U.N. tribunal Tuesday. Judges Wednesday accepted the agreement under which four counts of war crimes are being dropped by the prosecution. “Mr Babic, this chamber finds you guilty on count one of the indictment issued on the sixth of November, 2003: persecutions on political, racial and religious grounds, a crime against humanity,” judge Alphons Orie said.
