UN court upholds Ratko Mladic’s war crimes, genocide convictions

Al Jazeera, 08 Jun 2021
UN appeals judges have upheld the convictions of former Bosnian Serb military chief Ratko Mladic for genocide and other offences during Bosnia’s 1992-95 war, and confirmed his life sentence.

Tuesday’s verdict by five judges at the UN International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals at The Hague was final and cannot be appealed any further.

Twenty-six years after the Srebrenica massacre, the decision brings to a close the last Bosnian genocide trial before the court.

Presiding Judge Prisca Matimba Nyambe of Zambia said the court dismissed Mladic’s appeal “in its entirety”.
