  2. So let's break this story down...

    He gets 25 years for war crimes plus about 5 years for the three contempt charges = approximately 30 years. He then gets a third lopped off for "good" behavior (not really the case with him, but Europe is a pretty humane place, so he'll probably get the reduction), leaving a net of 20 years' prison time. He's already done 12, so that leaves 8 left, which of course gets postponed per the appeals process.

    He's out on temporary release for treatment of his illness, and that should still be in effect through the appeals process, so there's really no reason to have him present for the verdict, especially since an arrest jeopardizes the safety of the gendarmerie (recall the Sloba arrest on 31/3/2001).

    He's been invited to attend the reading of the verdict via video link, but would prefer to watch on Serbian TV. OK, great. No need to set up him with access to the ICTY network, so IT work order canceled and a few euros saved. Nice.

    The appeals process will take a while - we'll see whether he lives long enough to see it through. That might be close. Regardless, his health would probably be so poor by that point that his sentence - if upheld - would be suspended and he would never have to return to the Hague.
