Will Milosevic Be Tried at The Hague?

Hosted by
Former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic has finally admitted his role in financing Serb armies in Croatia and Bosnia during the bloody Balkans wars of the 1990s. Experts claim his admission facilitates prosecuting the accused war criminal but the Yugoslavian government is refusing to send him to The Hague. We consider where the former dictator should be tried and what results a trial might yield with a political advisor to the international court, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, an ally of the democratic opposition in Serbia, Yugoslavia's UN ambassador, and its former Prime Minister Milan Panic.
