Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You're right. But there are new names popping up as time goes by.

Speaking of The Hague - just look at the grotesque case of Vojislav Seselj. Leader of the Radicals - he's being tried in essence for organizing and delivering nationalist speeches during the war! No case. No evidence of crimes - except political crimes. And the guy has been behind bars for what... 4 years now? Just amazing. Why not send Le Pen to the Hague? or Jorg Haider? Or any extreme right leader?

The politicized manner in which Hague 'justice system' is administered really raises the question of EU values which are propagated beyond Europe's borders. Can they be interpreted as being universal, free and fair? What is the impact of this rather visible institution on the EU's political credibility beyond its borders? Or is it all irrelevant?
