Despite "Serbia's newfound appetite for international justice", IWPR correspondant Simon Jennings argues that the "EU Should Keep Up Pressure on Belgrade". "Given the recent arrests (...), it is regrettable that European chiefs are looking to relax their strict conditions on movement towards integration just when they are starting to work", e.g. by initiating a trade agreement with Serbia.
