Ex-ICTY official wanted for contempt held at Karadzic hearing

AFP , Thursday 24 Mar 2016

The ex-spokeswoman for the chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, convicted in 2009 on contempt charges, was dramatically detained by UN security guards at the court on Thursday, AFP reporters witnessed.

French national Florence Hartmann, who was sentenced on appeal to seven days in prison in 2009 after writing a book containing confidential court details, was grabbed at the tribunal's entrance just hours before a landmark verdict against former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic was to be delivered.
