BELGRADE -The verdict for leader of the Serbian Radical Party (SRS) Vojislav Seselj is far less important in legal and political terms than the conviction of Radovan Karadzic, Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic said on Wednesday, adding that as any other verdict, it could not have serious consequences for Serbia.

Vucic told reporters ahead of Thursday’s reading of the judgment at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), saying that he did not know its content.

On Thursday, the ICTY will pass a first-instance verdict for Seselj, who is accused of crimes against Croats and Muslims in Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Vojvodina.

Seselj will not be present during the reading of the verdict in The Hague.
