Controversy seen in term

people in the senate who could look at
the fetal tissue research objectively,
but he said he was also impressed
with the students who were active in
“The student effort was impor

who were for and against the issue.”
During his term, Schuerman not
only gained recognition on campus,
but also across the country.
After passing the resolution to
make the ASUN office a safe space to
all students, as well as recognize
ASUN as an Allies Against

“The domestic partner benefits
really showed a collaborative and
coordinated effort,” he said.
Mashek said the passing of that
bill was evidence that Schuerman did
a good job of doing the things he set
out to do.
“Andy was very good at getting
what he wanted accomplished,”
Mashek said. “He had a set agenda,
and he did it. I didn’t always agree
with him, but he did it.”
Schuerman said setting goals was
an important part of his term.
“In the three years I have been
with ASUN, this has been one of the
most goal-setting years,” Schuerman
said. “I wanted to really write things
down, make timelines and hold peo

ASUN arts and sciences senator
first vice president for ASUN agreed *
that goals were important during their
“Our whole goal - Andy’s, mine
and many members of the senate -
was to focus on human rights issues to
make students feel welcome on cam

Schuerman said there were a lot of
things his administration did that
made him proud. One of those accom
plishments was NU on Wheels, he
“Making NU on Wheels part of
ASUN early in the semester was one
of the biggest highlights,” he said.
An area that Schuerman said cre
ated a lot of activity was a retreat at
the beginning of the year that focused
on diversity and sensitivity education.
“It was eye-opening for those
involved,” he said. “It is important that
we (ASUN) are sensitive to individual
While much was accomplished,
Schuerman said there were things that
he would have liked to have seen
“I am disappointed with our abili
ty to bring in students who feel alien
ated,” he said. “With the change in
administration, the follow-through
might not happen.”
Schuerman does not see this as a
drawback, rather an incentive to keep
himself involved and active in ASUN.
Winkle said she felt the same way.
“I don’t think we’re finished yet,”
she said. “I think ASUN has a long
way to go, and the university has a
long way to go. But I think we’ve
planted some seeds for future years.”
Schuerman said he is optimistic
about the new ASUN president, Joel
Schafer, despite the fact that Schafer
has no experience with ASUN.
“What Joel lacks in experience, he
makes up for in character, tenacity
and openness,” Schuerman said. “I
think he will do a good job.
“He has a challenging task
because he has no experience.”
Schuerman said he and Schafer
both agree that Schafer’s lack of
ASUN experience is good because he
has no loyalties but could also be bad
because he has no relationship with
ASUN and the people involved.
“I am very anxious to see the
result of next year’s senate and execu
tives,” Schuerman said.
Now that his term is through,
Schuerman said he plans to catch up
on some homework he has been put

But his involvement with ASUN
might not necessarily be over.
“I am toying with the idea of join

other side of ASUN, but that depends
on the demands of my job,”
Either way, he has one piece of
advice to leave for next year’s senate.
“It is incredibly important for sen
ators to end affiliations with artificial
entities, such as electio^groups and
focus on what were the ideals, goals
and approaches that drew the people
in and focus on those,” Schuerman

Bosnian man faces war-crime trial

■ Ally to Serb leader faces
genocide charges for his
part in Albanian killings.
THE HAGUE, Netherlands
(AP) - U.N. prosecutors rejoiced as
the most senior war crimes suspect
to date was arrested Monday in
Bosnia and brought for trial, galva
nizing their crusade to bring the
architects of the Balkan “ethnic
cleansing” campaigns to justice.
Momcilo Krajisnik, a close ally
of former Bosnian Serb leader
Radovan Karadzic, was arrested at
his home in Pale by French NATO
troops who witnesses said forced
open his door before dawn.
Yugoslavia’s state-run Tanjug news
agency said Krajisnik was led away
in his pajamas and bare feet.
Krajisnik is charged with every
wa^ crime on the Yugoslav tri
bunal’s statute, including genocide,
in an indictment filed secretly by
Chjef Prosecutor Carla Del Ponte in
February so as not to let the suspect
know prosecutors were on his trail.
The indictment, unsealed
Monday, charges Krajisnik with
being the principal strategist, along
with Karadzic, behind civilian mas
sacres aimed at carving an ethnical
ly pure Serb state out of Bosnian
It catalogs dozens of destroyed
villages and the massacres of hun
dreds of people, as well as naming
11 prison camps where non-Serbs
were detained and tortured,execut
ed or deported.
Conviction wouldmeana maxi
mum life sentence for Krajisnik,
55. He is expected to.appear before
the court this week to enter a plea.
Krajisnik is the 19th suspect
arrested by the military alliance on
a warrant from the tribunal, estab
lished seven years ago to prosecute
those responsible for atrocities in
the Balkans following the disinte
gration of Yugoslavia in 1991.
NATO Secretary General Lord
Robertson warned remaining war
crimes suspects that “the net is
closing” on them.

tion of how far the tribunal - the
first international war crimes court
since after World War II - has come
since its early years, when its
indictments were largely ignored
and support from the Security
Council was halfhearted at best.
“It’s a very good day for the tri
bunal,” said prosecution spokesman
Paul Risiey. ^
Krajisnik outranks the 36 other
suspects in tribunal custody, includ
ing three Bosnian Serb generals
attested since 1998‘for some of the
worst atrocities in<the war.
One of them, Gen. Radislav
Krstic, entered the third week of his
genocide trial for the massacre of
thousands of men in the Muslim
enclave of Srebrenica. J
In a separate proceeding, a
Muslim rape victim sat Monday
with her back to the accused as their
lawyers cross-examined her follow
ing her harrowing testimony last
week of being raped and tortured
nightly as a teen-ager in a Bosnian
Serb detention camp. Krajisnik was
one of the most wanted figures in
the 1992-1995 Bosnian war. He is
considered secondary only to
Karadzic and wartime Bosnian
Serb military chief Ratko Mladic,
who are also under indictment and
believed to be at large on Serb soil.
“Hooray!” cheered Richard
Holbrooke, the U.S. ambassador to
the United Nations who was the key
negotiator of the 1995 Dayton
peace agreement. He said Krajisnik
was “one of the top two leaders
(with Karadzic) of the separatist,
racist, murderous people who start
ed this war in Bosnia ”
“It isolates Karadzic still fur
ther. He can either continue to run
or he can start to negotiate a peace
ful move to The Hague,” he told The
Risley described Krajisnik as
one of “the individuals who ran ille
gal operations that resulted in the
deaths of thousands of Bosnians.”
