EVERYONE IS TO BLAME FOR SREBRENICA GENOCIDE EXCEPT MLADIC AND KARADZIC

According to the findings of Mladic’s defense military expert Mitar Kovac, everyone was responsible for the genocide in Srebrenica – Alija Izetbegovic, Bill Clinton, foreign intelligence services, Serb mercenaries and avengers, the Scorpions unit, and a part of the Bosnian Serb military services; everyone, in fact, but the Republika Srpska military and political leadership

'QUANTUM DIFFERENCE' IN CRIMES

As he was questioned by Mladic’s defense, Japanese diplomat Yasushi Akashi said that the Bosnian side was responsible for violating the agreement and refusing to sign ceasefire agreements. In the cross-examination, when the focus turned to the crimes, Akashi confirmed the claim he made in his book, that all three sides in BH had committed crimes. However, Akashi noted, there was a ‘quantum difference’ between the three because only for the Serb side ‘genocide was part of their official policy’

OBSTRUCTING ‘NON-EXISTENT’ TRIBUNAL IN THE HAGUE

Dragan Kijac continued his evidence in Ratko Mladic’s defense. Kijac, who headed the Bosnian Serb secret police during the war and later became the police minister, had claimed that he didn’t know anything about the Srebrenica crimes until 2000. The prosecutor contested Kijac’s claims with the evidence showing that Kijac was involved in an operation in which false documents were issued to the killers from the 10th Commando Detachment. The unit members were given false papers to protect them from the Tribunal in The Hague, the prosecutor emphasized. The witness replied that at the time the Tribunal ‘did not exist’ as far as he was concerned. Kijac noted that there was no law in Republika Srpska regulating cooperation with the Tribunal
