The UN war crimes tribunal in The Hague (ICTY) has suspended indefinitely the trial of former Croatian Serb rebel leader Goran Hadzic, who was provisionally released a year ago due to his poor health, according to AFP.
Hadzic's trial at the ICTY began in 2012 but the following year he was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer, with doctors saying he had at best two years to live.
Proceedings were suspended in October 2014 as he was unable to take part in them because of the side effects of his treatment, which includes chemotherapy.
Hadzic returned to Serbia in April last year on provisional release for treatment at home in Novi Sad, 70 kilometres north of the Serbian capital.
The one-time leader of the self-proclaimed Republic of Serbian Krajina in Croatia during the 1990s war, Hadzic faces charges including crimes against humanity.
