Mladic’s defence asked for the second time since the trial started(on May 16) for a six-months postponement the trial started.
Branko Lukic, Mladic’s defence attorney said that on all other trials on Hague Tribunal, the evidence was submitted to defence teams at least three months prior to the presentation of evidence, situation that is different from Mladic’s trial.
“The defence has still not received all the evidence and the prosecution gave incorrect reports about the disclosure of evidence. The Chamber set the date for the evidence presentation, based on the fact that the defence had received all of the pieces of evidence that the prosecution would use while examining witnesses. However it did not take the evidence needed for cross-examination of witnesses into consideration,” said Lukic.
