Reports in Case : Bosnia and Herzegovina vs. SR Yugoslavia/SCG
BH VS. SaM: JUDGMENT DUE ON 26 FEBRUARY 2007
On Monday 26 February 2007, the International Court of Justice will deliver its judgment on whether the former FRY or the former SaM is responsible for genocide in Bosnia Herzegovina. The judgment comes fourteen years after the legal suit was filed and a year after the start of hearings on the merits
SERBIA FOUND GUILTY OF FAILURE TO PREVENT AND PUNISH GENOCIDE
The judgment delivered by the International Court of Justice today confirmed that the Bosnian Serb forces committed the genocide in Srebrenica in July 1995. Serbia, in the first place, failed to prevent it, and afterwards failed to punish the perpetrators – first and foremost Ratko Mladic - and surrender them to the Tribunal. BH’s claim for reparation was dismissed by the ICJ
THE MISSING LINK
What is the meaning and the import of the judgment delivered by the International Court of Justice in the Bosnia-Herzegovina vs. Serbia and Montenegro case? Serbia continuously breaches the Genocide Convention. Did the outcome of the 14-year long legal suit come too early for Bosnia Herzegovina?
