Hague court found that Bosnian Serbian former commander "significantly contributed" to the genocide in Srebrenica, and was also guilty of war crimes, and crimes against humanity.22 November 2017
The charges, which Mladic denies and allegedly plans to appeal, were related to his time as military commander of Bosnian Serb forces against Bosnian Croat and Bosniak armies between 1992 and 1995, during the Yugoslav wars. ICTY found that Mladic “significantly contributed” to the massacre of 8,000 Bosniak boys and men in Srebrenica, and that he “carried out and personally oversaw a deadly campaign of sniping and shelling in Sarajevo,” Al Jazeera reports.
"The crimes committed rank among the most heinous known to humankind," said ICTY judge Alphons Orie.
Param-Preet Singh, associate international justice director at Human Rights Watch, said “more than two decades after his indictment, Ratko Mladic is finally facing the consequences of his gruesome crimes. The Mladic verdict should send a message to those in power around the world who are committing brutal atrocities, whether in Burma, North Korea, or Syria, that justice can find those who seem untouchable.”
