The Mechanism for International Criminal Tribunals (Mechanism) today launched an online exhibition that provides insight into the suffering of children during the Rwandan genocide in 1994 and the conflicts in the former Yugoslavia in the 1990s.
The Office of the Prosecutor welcomes the Trial Chamber’s judgment convicting Radovan Karadžić of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes and sentencing him to forty years of imprisonment. We are satisfied that the Trial Chamber accepted the extensive evidence proving beyond reasonable doubt Karadžić’s individual criminal responsibility for a broad range of crimes. These include crimes committed throughout municipalities in Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as during the siege of Sarajevo and the Srebrenica genocide.
Mićo Stanišić and Stojan Župljanin, two high level officials in Bosnian Serb structures, were today each sentenced to 22 years imprisonment for crimes against humanity and war crimes committed between April and December 1992 in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH).
Trial Chamber I of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia today convicted Momčilo Perišić, a former Chief of the General Staff of the Yugoslav Army, for crimes against humanity and war crimes committed in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Croatia and sentenced him to 27 years of imprisonment.
The Hague, 30 July 2008 - Radovan Karadži? is now in the custody of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia.
