Justice for victims of the Screbrenica Massacre
Since the conclusion of the Bosnian genocide in December of 1995, recovery has been slow and steady. Today, however, a considerable step in the path to justice was made with Aleksandar Cvetkovic’s indictment for the genocide of Srebrenica in July 1995.
Further history was made today with Holland’s Supreme Court order that the Netherlands compensate the families of three Muslim men who were expelled from the UN compound in Srebrenica and consequently killed by Bosnian Serb forces. The case opens the Netherlands up for further compensation and “sets a precedent that countries providing troops as UN peacekeepers can be held legally responsible for crimes.”
