QC ends three-year war crimes trial

Nicholas Stewart QC, a silk at Ely Place Chambers, is due to return to London after spending three years in The Hague defending Bosnian Serb Momcilo Krajisnik in the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, a major war crimes trial. Krajisnik faces charges of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity, with the prosecution asserting that Krajisnik was a leading figure among Bosnian Serbs at the time of the 1992 war. Stewart made his final submissions for his client in The Hague at the end of August and judgment will be delivered on 29 September. Stewart will return to his commercial and chancery litigation practice later this year.
