Milosevic shows video of British inspector's 'involvement'
The Hague: Former Yugoslav president Slobodan Milosevic showed a video Thursday of the international community's high representative to Bosnia apparently inspecting weapons held by the Kosovo Liberation Army in September 1998.
In the video, Paddy Ashdown advises a man dressed in KLA uniform to be "careful" with the hand grenades.
Milosevic, being tried for war crimes here, described as a "scandal" the weapons inspection by Ashdown, who at the time was deeply involved in monitoring the conflict.
The former officer in Britain's Royal Marines and former member of the British parliament should not have been so closely involved with a "terrorist organisation", Milosevic said.
Ashdown is a key prosecution witness in the trial, which has been running since February 2002.
