One year on: Milosevic unrelentingly fights war crimes allegations

By ANTHONY DEUTSCH, Associated Press Writer

   THE HAGUE, Netherlands, June 22 (AP) - Working from the U.N.

detention unit on a warm Saturday in June, Slobodan Milosevic called

one of his legal aides in a huff.

    Dragoslav Ognjanovic, dressed in a Hawaii-print shirt, shorts

and sunglasses, paced nervously on the beach outside The Hague while

Milosevic barked down the phone.  There was a mix-up at the prison and

he hadn't received prosecution documents on a Kosovo Albanian witness

due to testify the following Monday.

   "I need them to prepare," Milosevic told him.

   The former Yugoslav president told Ognjanovic to find the problem

and fix it, and called back hourly demanding a progress report.

   On Friday, Milosevic will have spent one year in U.N. custody,

sharing facilities with more than 40 other suspects from the wars

in Croatia, Bosnia and Kosovo in the 1990s.

   He is the highest-ranking war crimes suspect to be tried by an

international tribunal since the Nuremberg and Tokyo trials after

World War II.

   Milosevic, who studied law, also is the first defendant before the

7-year-old Yugoslav tribunal to act as his own defense counsel.  The

case raises new questions for the judges on how much leeway to grant him

when he practices polemics rather than law.

   Four months into the trial, Milosevic is leading a vigorous defense,

shunning courtroom niceties to cross-examine witnesses with combative


   The first part of the trial focuses on the 1999 Kosovo conflict,

in which the 13-year dictator of Yugoslavia faces five counts of crimes

against humanity and violating the laws of war.  Later, he must answer

to 61 more counts for earlier conflicts in Croatia and Bosnia, including


   Eating into the prosecution's time, Milosevic fills hours accusing

NATO and the Kosovo Albanian rebel forces of war crimes.

   Alone at the defense bench, Milosevic often slumps and feigns boredom

during a witness' testimony.  Most victims of Serb violence refuse to

look at him, though the witness chair is just a few feet away.

   In cross-examination, he often denigrates a witness's character,

accuses him of spinning lies, or of protecting the "terrorists" who

opposed him.  He theatrically waves sheaves of documents, or somberly

narrates video footage of the havoc brought to his own people by his


   Milosevic's tactics have brought him into regular clashes with

the three judges who will decide whether he is guilty and could

then determine his sentence. In other cases, the courts have shown

flexibility in sentencing, depending on whether the defendant has

shown remorse.

   Almost daily, Judge Richard May warns Milosevic against haranguing

witnesses, and once told him he could lose his right to cross-examine.

   "He is not conducting a true legal defense, that's been clear from

Day  One of the trial," said Richard Dicker, head of the international

justice program at Human Rights Watch.

   "He's engaged in political offense," Dicker said.  "He is trying

to rewrite the history of Yugoslavia in the 1990s, casting himself

as a victim, NATO as a criminal, and the court as an accomplice."

   The momentum Milosevic had at the beginning of his trial seems

to have wavered, and many observers believe several highly effective

prosecution witnesses stood up to his interrogation tactics and

presented incriminating evidence.

   One such witness was former NATO commander Gen. Klaus Naumann,

who said that during one meeting he had with Milosevic in 1998, the

then-president and his aides mused about "solving" the ethnic problem

in Kosovo by shooting or expelling Albanians.

   The strain of his defense may be taking a physical toll on the

60-year-old Milosevic.  He has fallen ill twice since the Feb. 12

start of his trial, forcing a three-week delay so far. Hearings were

again canceled for a week in June while he recovered.

   Milosevic's bombastic courtroom style has been popular back home

in Serbia, where it looks good on television.  But legal experts say

it won't earn him points with the judges.

   "He is still talking to his public, and that doesn't do much good

in court," said legal analyst Heikelien Verrijn Stuart.  "His show is

weak. It's a long-winded gimmick that only impresses those seeing it

for the first time."

   Paul Williams, a law professor at American University who represented

the Bosnians at the 1995 Dayton talks which ended the Bosnian war, said

the prosecutors seem to be proving their case, but that they are failing

to convince the Yugoslav people of Milosevic's guilt.

   In the coming weeks, prosecutors are expected to summon what they call

their "insider" witnesses, people from the Yugoslav political circle who

might link Milosevic personally to actions that led to hundreds of murders

and the expulsion of 800,000 Kosovo Albanians from their homes.

P E O P L E M O V E --- P E O P L E C O M M U N I C A T E

People move across physical and virtual borders. People push the electronic
frontiers through digital and physical communication. States and 
are enforcing control of both flows. Information technology is part of the
freefloating culture of resistance and a tool to develop a society of
seemless control.
The border camp in Strasbourg is the perfect location to explore these 
and link the struggles for free movement and free communication.


d.sec (first call published on, january 2002) is part of the
international noborder action camp ( in 
July 19-28, 2002. The intention is to create a thread around the issues
of freedom of movement and freedom of communication. The link between both
is becoming more important with the virtualisation of borders - which certainly
does not make them softer.

Situated in Alsace, with a French/German border which has shifted 5 times
in the last 5 centuries, Strasbourg is now the location of the Schengen
Information System (SIS), a detention center and many EUropean institutions.
d..sec will use this thick symbolic space as an experimental field to better
understand how the virtualisation of borders works, and what to do about it.

Between 1000 and 3000 people are expected for the bordercamp. d.sec will take
place on the campsite and in town, with workshops, presentations,
active discussions or chilling out with a notebook and a cup of coffee.


d.sec is about reflecting the mechanisms of repression/control in the 
fields of
free movement and free communication, the experiences of electronic and
physical bordercrossing. An attempt to integrate cyber-activism and taking the
streets, and find the relations between social and technical skills. The wider
objective is to give momentum to an ongoing exploration of technical 
in the resistance against the border regime.

d.sec relies on the diversity of people who will be present at the Strasbourg
border camp. Some of the activists will be web designers and editors, sys-ads,
videomakers, code-writers, translators. Some earn a living with this 
"immaterial labour",
some just use it in their political work. Others focus on the streets. 
Others have
experience with borders and migration.

/*hack the streets. be pink and silver on the net*/

d.sec is meant to become an open structure where activists, anti-racists, 
hackers, teccies, artists and many more put their knowledges and
practices into self-organised interaction. A space to discuss and network, 
for skill
sharing and and collaborative knowledge production. A laboratory to try out
ways to hack the streets and reclaim cyberspace with crowds in pink and 
experiment with virtual identities, linux and open-source products; explore
the embodyment of technology, learn about the meanings of physical and
virtual bordercrossing.


- ---------------------------------------------------------------

check out the discussion forum on (under construction)
This is a space to collect and discuss
articles, images and texts before,
during and after the camp, a pool for information.

- ---------------------------------------------------------------


We propose three modes of gettogethers - they are flexible, can take place
anywhere, each mode can turn into another one if people feel like it.

[presentations] anything from formal presentations to chilled-out exchange,
inspired by an impulse contribution (film, talk, website, sound).
Might turn into
active discussions. Could be open to the public

[workshops] skill sharing about things like how to secure my PC, Linux
installation, video editing, webradio, websites, diagramme making, streamingâ

[active discussion] Brainstorms, dreams, theory with a perspective to develop
into ongoing projects and actions. Can last anything between a few minutes
and several days and nights.


d.sec/ is where the multitudes infect each other with subversive
desires and constructive acts. Let's turn projects, questions
and practices into interventions. Bring the tools to cross the
digital borders. Let's be the humans behind the machines.

/*if you know of anyone who might be
interested, please forward this invitation.*/

/*if you want to put your project on the preliminary
programme or need equipment,
mail to*/

This is a choice of projects and groups. Some have already confirmed that 
they are coming, others are projects worth looking at for inspiration.

information"  pls get in touch!

{ The struggles for freedom of movement and freedom of communication are 
beginning to interact. To take the solidarity further, we need an 
understanding of how both freedoms are being controlled. Demystifying the 
SIS and visualising virtual borders could be a practical starting point. We 
need to know how IT tools are supporting virtual borders, and how we can 
use them for our own purposes. Let‘s talk about how the machinery of 
control affects all of us - as migrants, activists, webbies and crossovers 
of all sorts.}

Ist die große Geste der Negation noch angemessen? Ist sie noch

wieder kleine abgegrenzte Räume bilden? Ja ist nicht oft die Verneinung
nur eine schwache unpräzise Bejahung? Wofür ist eine/r, der/die

will die Frage als eine typische Schnittstelle zwischen künstlerischer

Subject: Le Fresnoy's Exhibition

From: "Nadine CLARISSE" <>

I want to inform you of a body of three exhibitions, both curated by Régis
Durand; they will take place simultaneously in the Centre National de la
Photographie in Paris, Le Fresnoy, Studio National des arts contemporains
(Tourcoing : from 21 Septembre to 1st December 2002), and the Musée d'Art
Moderne de Lille Métropole (Villeneuve d'Ascq).

The project aims as showing the complex and fruitful relationship between
these two forms of expression (Image and text) Which bringing together gives
an extremely productive reflection scheme. The history of this relationship
oscillates between the allegation of their irreducible differences - images
belonging to a different order than language - and the study of their
convergent and complementary elements, which are as obvious as their

Each place, according to its own specificity, will be showing one or several
aspects of the theme. In the Centre National de la Photographie, each artist
will represent one possible approach of this text-image relationship. In Le
Fresnoy, there will be works having a link with cinema and video
installation. In the Musée d'Art Moderne, it will be a thematic and
historical approach.

As part of this project, we would like to inform you that your site on Geert
Lovink and Ted Byfield will be available in a space for consultation.

speaking appearance in Sydney. 


PAULA ABOOD - community worker, writer and activist, currently working with 
ethnic communities on an anti-racism project in Western Sydney, NSW - 
speaking on the use of 'racial profiling' as surveillance. 

Policy researcher and technology theorist DAVID SUTTON speaking on modern 
day living among data phantoms and the possibilities for response to data 

Independent forensic science commentator MICHAEL STRUTT speaking on 
bioinformatics, DNA databasing and the commodification of genetic information.

international artists responding to surveillance technologies and 
processes: Denis Beaubois 'In the event of amnesia the city will recall'
