Full Serbian War Archive Kept from Genocide Court

Spring 2003 marked the trial of Slobodan Milosevic, where hundreds of documents were presented as an inside view of the Serbian government in the Bosnian war of 1992-1995.

Serbia was allowed by the war tribunal to hide parts of their war archive from the public. The country's lawyers declared an issue of national security and censored many sensitive, and possibly incriminating, pages, the New York Times said.

According to those involved in the attempt at secrecy, Serbia wanted to keep all of the military archives from the International Court of Justice, which was where Bosnia sued Serbia for genocide. Now that the court has declared Serbia not guilty, they believe it has achieved this goal.

Wow, a really interesting story that involves many sources. I think that the fact that this event actually took place in 2003 might make it harder for the reporter to make contact with certain sources. Some might be harder to track down, and some might have even disappeared in that amount of time.
