Witness in court

The awarding of the Nobel Prize for Literature to Peter Handke caused a lot of anger in Kosovo, where he is generally perceived as an admirer of Slobodan Milosevic. The 76-year-old Austrian writer in 1999 condemned Western bombings of Serbia in 1999 to force Slobodan Milosevic, a strong man in Belgrade, to relax the grip of his troops on Kosovo's Albanian majority during this period. .

He also visited Milosevic's hometown of Pozarevac in 2006 for the funeral of the former Serbian leader. He died before hearing his verdict for war crimes before international justice. Slobodan Milosevic wanted Peter Handke to testify in his favor before the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY).

The NATO bombings forced Slobodan Milosevic to withdraw his troops from Kosovo, paving the way for Pristina's independence in 2008.
