Wikipedia Admitted in Evidence at the Yugoslavia Tribunal

Some time ago, the Wikipedia entry on 'Ustasha' was admittted in evidence before the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia in the Gotovina trial. According to the transcript of 25 April 2008, pp. 2271-2274, the defence produced the entry without objection from the Prosecutor, who said only: 'Wikipedia is the freeencyclopedia from which sources can be uploaded from anywhere. We do not consider it in general to be a reliable source of information.' It is exhibit D142 in the case.
