Release on Bail at the Yugoslavia Tribunal

Yesterday, the Appeals Chamber of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia released an interesting decision on provision release of Berislav Pusic. He had been allowed by the Trial Chamber to return home to Croatia for three weeks. The Prosecutor appealed the decision, but it was dismissed. There is an interesting dissent by Judge Schomburg. The decision is not yet on the website of the Tribunal, but I have obtained a copy: Mercifully, it is a short decision that one can read and digest in a few minutes.

Can you tell us quite specifically what is it that you find so interesting in Judge Schomburg's dissent? Is it that he exhibits trouble understanding German law as well?
