Released Serbian Nationalist Flaunts Freedom, Burning Croatian Flag

A Serbian ultra-nationalist released on compassionate grounds by a United Nations war crimes court flaunted his freedom on Wednesday by setting fire to a Croatian flag two days after judges ordered him to return. Vojislav Seselj, who has cancer and was released in November, repeated that he would not voluntarily return to the tribunal for the former Yugoslavia in The Hague despite judges on Monday revoking his release order. The performance will only increase the pressure on Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic, formerly one of Seselj's closest political lieutenants, to arrest and return him to the U.N. tribunal.
