Report: Serbia covered up genocide docs
by UPI

THE HAGUE - When the International Court of Justice declared Serbia not guilty of genocide against Bosnia, it did so without key documentation, The New York Times said.

Hundreds of documents were sent to the war crimes tribunal in 2003 during the trial of Slobodan Milosevic at The Hague. They were stamped "Defense. State Secret. Strictly Confidential," the newspaper said.

The documents included minutes of wartime meetings among political and military leaders in Yugoslavia regarding the Bosnian war in the early 1990s.

However, the Times reported, Serbia -- the former Yugoslavia -- received permission from the war crimes tribunal to wall off parts of the archive in the interest of national security. Lawyers for Serbia blacked out pages they called sensitive, but sources who have seen the pages say the blacked-out information is incriminating.

Judges and lawyers at the war crimes tribunal were able to see the censored material, but it was not allowed to become part of the tribunal's public record.

Lawyers and others involved in Serbia's request for secrecy say Belgrade was able to keep the full military archives from the International Court of Justice, which in February absolved Serbia from paying damages for the alleged genocide.
