UN war crimes court unveils last verdict in Bosnian Croat

United Nations

Six former Bosnian Croat political and military leaders will on Wednesday learn their fate as UN judges hand down their final verdict for war crimes committed during the bloody break-up of Yugoslavia.

It comes a week after the judges imposed a life sentence on former Bosnian Serb military commander Ratko Mladic, whose ruthlessness in the conflict earned him the title ‘the Butcher of Bosnia’.

Former prime minister of a breakaway statelet Prlic, and his five co-defendants were found guilty in 2013 on 26 charges of taking part in a scheme to remove Bosnian Muslims permanently and create a Croatian territory.

The bloody 1992-1995 war in Bosnia, in which 1 lakh people died and 2.2 million were displaced, mainly pitted Bosnian Muslims against Bosnian Serbs and Bosnian Croats.
