Has he been convictee already? I thought that the trial was still ongoing.
I must have missed something. However, in this case, I'm on Milosevic's
side on this one. The `World Court' has no jurisdiction in this matter
since it not a legally constitted court. Only properly constituted nations
can have courts and then only to try it's own citizens. No country has the
right to put anyone on trial for a crime that was not committed in their
own country. Milosevic can only be tried in a court in his own country.
However, I won't let this clearly immoral use of free software deterr me
from using it.
