Den Hague Mafia
Why the Real Criminals Keep Getting Released by Den Hague?
The Hague Kangaroo Court officials are reportedly using the confidential intermediaries to offer a “deal” to the Hague indictees: million dollars for every year shaved off the imprisonment term.
High officials of the Hague tribunal are blackmailing those indicted for war crimes on the territory of former Yugoslavia, offering them to pay huge amounts of money for release, or to have the sentence reduced. According to Kurir, the families of the few Serbs are being requested to pay a million dollars for each year of the reduced sentence.
The Kurir source from the Hague tribunal said that the families of the accused are trying to scrape together at least a portion of the money, hoping to manage to reduce the prison terms for their family members as much as possible, but being that the price tags are so high, Serbs are not able to buy even the portion of their freedom in the Hague.
Not Merely a Farce Den Hague is a Very Lucrative Blackmailing Business
“Of course, this is all being done in complete secrecy. The men close to the heads of Tribunal first contact the Hague prisoner’s lawyers who, after consulting with the family, decide whether they want and can get involved in this. Since most of the Serbs accused by the Hague are as poor as the church mice, for the greatest majority of them the ‘generous’ offer by the Tribunal is out of the question. On the other hand, this type of corruption is a common thing when it comes to the Albanian, Bosnian Muslim and Croat indictees. Ramush Haradinaj [notorious KLA cutthroat commander] is the best example — the Shiptars have collected millions of dollars for his release”, the Kurir Hague source, wishing to remain anonymous, revealed.
Another source of the Belgrade daily, considered thoroughly familiar with the situation in the Hague tribunal, also claims this type of “trade” is indeed an ongoing operation.
“They are mostly trying to get the money from the ones for whom they know they have it, and that is not many of the accused. Those are the ones who have been at the top of the hierarchy during the wars and who have profited from the wars, those who have the gas pumps, the firms, the foreign currency accounts abroad… One Serbian indictee, for one part of his complaint, has hired the most expensive American lawyer Alan Dershowitz, while Haradinaj paid only to the Cherry Blair Office 9 mill. euros for his defense, which says plenty about their financial means,” the Hague insider said.
He pointed out that the Hague investigators are in position to easily find the money trails of the wealthy indictees, whose accounts they freeze, “and from that point on the trade with the prison terms are fully enabled and even pragmatic: the money is blocked, and those who are facing the drastic sentences can’t spend their money anyway. So, it is better for them to accept to give money for the freedom.”
“The only question that remains is whether the judges are so malleable to accept to render a bought verdict. I can guarantee that they are. Majority of the Hague judges have never been judges before, but mostly came from the diplomatic functions. They are all very well inter-connected and they easily come to terms among themselves,” the Hague source explained.
Lawyer Toma Fila of the famous Serbian Law Office said he hadn’t heard about freedom-buying practice in the Hague, but the fact that there is no longer an automatic release after the two thirds of the prison term served is an important indicator that this is quite possibly true.
“This was the practice up to the arrival of the US Judge Meron, but then it was decided it is something that has to be determined from case to case”, Fila said.
Croat Secret Services Use Hague’s Confidential Documentation to Train their Witnesses
Nerma Jelacic, a Croat woman rumored to have had a sexual affair with the Bosnian Muslim war criminal Naser Oric while he was in the Hague prison, who happens to be a spokesperson for the Hague tribunal, told Kurir this is a “nebulous nonsense that doesn’t deserve a comment”. Asked to whom could the Hague accused report such blackmails and is there an international body authorized to investigate and prosecute the Hague tribunal employees for corruption and abuse of power, Ms. Jelacic could not give a precise response and said this question should be posed to the UN Headquarters in New York.
“The Croat lobby before the Hague tribunal consists of the Croat state and its secret services. I have personally seen a confidential document in one trial, which shows that Croat agents broke into tribunal’s confidential documentation, based on which they have prepared their prosecution witnesses for Vukovar indictments, as well as the defense of Croat indictees. Croatia is even renting houses in Hague, to which it brings its legal and other experts, who are preparing the defense of indicted Croats. On the other hand, Serbian state does nothing, and accused Serbs and their lawyers are left to themselves,” renown Serbian lawyer Borivoje Borovic told Kurir.
Professor Vlajki: The Unprecedented Hague Farce
In the article published yesterday by Glas javnosti, Professor Emil Vlajki assessed that the “shabby ‘new world masters’ have shown the greatest level of cynicism towards the Serbian nation, which is, without exaggeration, unseen in the history of the world, through the behavior of the fake court of justice: the Hague Tribunal”.
“So, during the trial of V. Seselj, a following ‘evidence’ was presented against him. On the courtroom screen, the video footage from the early nineties of Bishop Filaret was played, as he showed the scull of a Serbian boy who was cruelly killed at the start of the war. Being that no one, including the judge, was able to immediately grasp how could a Serb be tried for a murder of another Serb committed by the Serbian enemies, the prosecutor gave a brief explanation: ‘This is the proof of Serbian propaganda!’ He didn’t offer any evidence for his claim, no expertise! The council of judges talked half a minute and accepted this sort of ‘proof’ against the accused as valid. Therefore, even when the Serbs are being killed they are still guilty, because they are deceiving the public with their allegedly fake deaths. In this way, a Serb is being tried in the Hague both for his own people killed by the enemy and for the victims on the enemy side. But that is not the end of the story.
“During the Seselj trial, a video clip was shown from the 1996 demonstrations, where he stated that one should have no dealings with this kind of Europe which constantly blackmails the Serbs. And nothing else was seen or heard. This ‘proof’ of Seselj’s ‘guilt’ obviously falls into the category of expressing a political view a whole score of international charters is unable to sanction. But the ‘genocidal’ Serbs, evidently, cannot be afforded a benefit of any human rights.
Preventive Genocide of a “Genocidal Nation”
“Instead of determining the individual responsibilities based on solid evidence, this prostituted court went as far as issuing a verdict to the Serbian history too, by mentioning, in one of the verdicts unparalleled in the judicial practice, that ‘the genocidal Serbian nationalism’ is rooted in ‘Nacertanije’ [an 1844 Memorandum to Serbian King Aleksandar Karadjordjevic, by Ilija Garasanin]! A ‘scientific basis’ for this type of views was given through the pen of the two British academicians (!) who in the 1990s wrote that even though it is true that [Bosnian Muslim Naser] Oric committed numerous crimes against the Serbs, that was justified, because the Serbs are a genocidal nation and, therefore, it was useful to kill them preventively in the greatest possible number, so they wouldn’t destroy the Muslim nation.
“It is entirely clear that the West could not find Oric and Haradinaj guilty in the Hague for the crimes committed against the Serbs, because in that way it would bring its entire politics into question — starting with the [West's] leading role in destruction of Yugoslavia, over demonizing the Serbs, favoring Croats and Muslims in the recent conflicts, the criminal NATO aggression in 1999, all the way down to promoting the ‘independent’ Kosovo. But this is all understandable, because the Serbs are the enemy.”
