Ratko Mladic Challenges Genocide Verdict at UN Court

Mladic was the military commander of Bosnian Serb forces against Bosnian Croat and Bosniak armies. He went on trial at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in 2012, and was convicted in 2017.


As former Bosnian Serb military chief Ratko Mladic appeals this week against the verdict finding him guilty of genocide and other wartime crimes, BIRN examines the main reasons for his conviction and how the defence will push for acquittal.


For the defence, "This hearing today is inappropriate and threatens... a miscarriage of justice”.
