We are Taking on The Hague Dec. 16th
and You Can help!
By Jared Israel
[12 December 2002]
Former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic has asked Quebec Attorney Tiphaine Dickson, Nico Varkevisser and me (Jared Israel) to meet with him to discuss strategy at Scheveningen Prison at The Hague. (Nico Varkevisser and I are going in our capacity as Vice-Chairpersons of the Int'l Committee to Defend Slobodan Milosevic, or ICDSM, which has retained Attorney Dickson.)
We'll be seeing former President Milosevic the week of December 16th as well as attending the trial proceeding and holding a press conference. We'll be reporting to you directly from The Hague.
It is a crucial time. Mr. Milosevic, who has a serious heart condition, has been deprived of proper care and subjected to health-threatening conditions. A Dutch newspaper has stated that he was actually given the wrong medicine.
The Hague judges and prosecutors have withheld proper medical care in order to coerce Mr. Milosevic into ceasing to defend himself (and the people of Serbia!). They want him to appoint some alternative counsel. He has made mince meat of The Hague's charges and obviously they wish to silence him. (Recently the Trial Chamber has taken to going into secret session when Mr. Milosevic cross-examines. Really, could they make it any clearer?)
The final discussion on Mr. Milosevic's health, and The Hague's attempt to force him to stop defending himself, may be held on Wednesday 18 December.
Slobodan Milosevic has refused to bow. We are going to The Hague to support this brave and principled leader.
Please help get us there. We need funds for airfare, an eight-day stay and a press conference. We have received some contributions - for which thank you! - but we are several thousand dollars short.
It is crucial that we go!
If possible, please help!
