Reports in Case : Krstic - "Srebrenica-Drina Corps"
APPEALS CHAMBER TO RENDER ITS JUDGMENT IN THE SREBRENICA GENOCIDE CASE ON 19 APRIL
The decision on the appeals lodged by the defense and the prosecution against the Trial Chamber’s judgment finding General Radislav Krstic guilty of genocide and his 46-year prison sentence will set standards of proof for the most serious crime in the jurisdiction of the Tribunal.
GENOCIDE – PROPER NAME FOR THE SREBRENICA MASSACRE
The Appeals Chamber of the International Tribunal in The Hague confirms the first-instance judgment from August 2001, qualifying the crimes committed in Srebrenica as genocide. The responsibility of General Krstic has been reduced from that of a "direct perpetrator" to an "aider and abettor of genocide," and his sentence has consequently been reduced from 46 to 35 years in prison.
