The International Tribunal
for the Prosecution of Persons Responsible

for Serious Violations of International Humanitarian Law Committed
in

the Territory of the Former Yugoslavia since 1991, more commonly

referred to as the "International Criminal Tribunal for the
former

Yugoslavia" or "ICTY," has issued an injunction to
the California-based

server and host www.lunarpages.com.

The court wants it to
remove Croatian journalist Domagoj Margetic’s Web

site postings of 1997 secret testimony by a protected witness, Croatian

President Stipe Mesic, during the ICTY trial of former Bosnian Croat

general Tihomir Blaskic.

Mesic gave the testimony
while he was an opposition politician.

In 2005 the ICTY court
based in The Hague charged Margetic with

contempt of court for publishing the testimony.

The saga began last Wednesday
when Margetic first posted Mesic’s

testimony on his Web site, www.domagojmargetic.com.
on a Zagreb-based

server. The next day police official Marijan Benko said that the
police

were ordered to block the audio recording of the testimony posted
on

the Web site and the Zagreb county court issued an order to close
it

down.

HINA news agency reported
Croatian Interior Ministry spokesman Zlatko

Mehun said that acting on the judge’s order the Zagreb crime police

also searched the host computer and its components.

Margetic then shifted
his material to the California-based host.

Zagreb’s
Vjecernji List reported that Margetic said, "I believe that
the United States will prevent the U.N. war crimes tribunal from
trampling on basic press freedoms. The ball is now in America’s
court.
I believe that as a journalist the United States will not allow
this
assault on freedom of information to happen."
