SARAJEVO (Bosnia and Herzegovina), November 22 (SeeNews) – The UN war crimes tribunal in the Hague sentenced Bosnian Serb wartime military commander Ratko Mladic to life in prison on Wednesday after finding him guilty on 10 out of 11 counts of war crimes, including genocide in Srebrenica, presiding Judge Alphons Orie said.
Mladic is guilty of genocide in Srebrenica, persecution, extermination, murder, deportation, inhumane acts, for leading a campaign of terror against citizens, for unlawful attacks on civilians, for violations of the laws and customs of war and for taking hostages perpetrated during the 1992-1995 war in Bosnia, Judge Alphons Orie said as he delivered the verdict.
The crimes Mladic has been found guilty of represent the most "heinous of all crimes", Orie noted.
Mladic was acquitted only of one count - of genocide in the municipalities including Foca, Kljuc, Kotor Varos, Prijedor, Sanski Most and Vlasenica.
Mladic was arrested in 2011, prior to which he was one of the world's most wanted fugitives. His trial has spread over four years and has been referred to internationally as the most significant war crimes case in Europe since WWII.
