The man nicknamed the “Butcher of Bosnia” this week was sentenced to life in jail. A UN tribunal in The Hague found Ratko Mladic guilty of various crimes, the most egregious of them was that the had “significantly contributed” to the genocide in Srebrenica in 1995, seen as the worst massacre on European soil since WWII. In July 1995, more than 7,000 Bosnian Muslim men and boys were killed by Bosnian Serb forces led by Mr. Mladic.“The crimes committed rank among the most heinous known to humankind, and include genocide and extermination as a crime against humanity,” said judge Alphons Orie as he announced the verdict. Mr. Mladic, a former Bosnian Serb commander who was also responsible for shelling civilians during the siege of Sarajevo, had been removed from the courtroom before the verdict for shouting at the judges. He is set to launch an appeal.
