A Bósnia-Herzegovina e o passado recente

Esta é ainda a realidade da Bósnia-Herzegovina.

Bosnian Serb jailed for genocide

The Court of Bosnia and Hercegovina has sentenced a former Bosnian Serb army officer to 30 years in prison for his part in the 1995 Srebrenica massacre.

Milorad Trbic had taken part in a plan to capture, detain, execute and bury all able-bodied Muslim men in the town with "genocidal intent", judges ruled.

In all, as many as 8,000 men and boys were killed by Serb forces towards the end of the three-year war in Bosnia.

The court has already jailed several others for their role in the massacre.

In July 2008, seven Bosnian Serbs were convicted of genocide and jailed for up to 42 years.

The former Bosnian Serb leader, Radovan Karadzic, is set to go on trial at The Hague on 26 October charged with 11 counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity, including at Srebrenica.

'Significantly contributed'

In its ruling on Friday, the court found Trbic guilty of genocide for his participation in a joint criminal enterprise between 12 July and 30 November 1995 in a plan to kill Bosniak (Muslim) males who were in the zone of responsibility of the Bosnian Serb army's Zvornik Brigade.
