Belgrade Zoo Director Brings Charges Against NATO to International Court of Justice in the Hague

NATO Aggression Threatens Animal Reproduction

BELGRADE - Vuk Bojovic, Belgrade Zoo Director, brought to the International Court of Justice in the Hague charges against all NATO member states participating in the aggression on Yugoslavia, on grounds of threatening lives and biological survival of animals at the Belgrade Zoo.

"By its activities amounting to criminal offenses, the Accused have disturbed the natural balance, preventing the reproduction course of animal species at the territory of the Prosecutor, thus influencing the global survival of the fauna population. Without animal species man is doomed to die of sorrow, and the Accused, by their genocide activities in the last ten days of strikes, have caused a partial extermination of some fauna population in the tract of the Prosecutor," a Belgrade Zoo Director charge says.

"At the sound of air raid alarms, animals lose their natural reproductive instincts by ignoring the members of the opposite sex.

"Such behavior of the animals also affects the performance of the Zoo employees who, due to the above reasons, are witnessing a disappearance of the animal species they cared for with love and attention, thus contributing to the education of children in this, currently bloodbathed, country."
