THE HAGUE | 04.12.2013.
On the third day of the appellate hearing for the Srebrenica genocide, the defense of the former Zvornik Brigade security chief tried hard to play down Nikolic’s role in the operation to kill the captured men and boys. According to Nikolic’s defense, his 35-year sentence should be reduced even if all findings in the trial judgment were to remain in force. The prosecution called for a harsher sentence for the man who ‘did everything to make the killing machinery function smoothly’ in July 1995
THE HAGUE | 03.12.2013.
As the appellate hearing continued today, Ljubisa Beara’s defense claimed that Beara couldn’t have been a participant in genocide, because he was acquitted of forcible expulsion of civilians and found guilty ‘only’ of mass executions of the captured men and boys. The prosecutor responded that the Srebrenica genocide centered on the murders in which Beara had played a key role

The Trial Chamber today handed down its judgment to the seven Bosnian Serb military and police officers, finding that the prosecution proved beyond reasonable doubt that the accused committed all the crimes alleged in the indictment, except deportation: genocide, conspiracy to commit genocide, extermination, murder, cruel and inhumane treatment, terrorizing civilians, persecution and forcible removal of population
THE HAGUE | 11.09.2009.
In their closing arguments, the defense of generals Radivoje Miletic and Milan Gvero condemned the prosecution’s ‘amending of the indictment during the trial’. Asking for their acquittal, the defense argued that the accusations against their clients remained unproven
THE HAGUE | 10.09.2009.
Ljubomir Borovcanin’s defense described the prosecution claims about his responsibility as mere ‘guesswork’. In her closing argument, Radivoje Miletic’s counsel noted the ‘prosecution has been unable’ to prove her client’s responsibility for the crimes in Srebrenica and Zepa
THE HAGUE | 09.09.2009.
In their closing arguments delivered at the Srebrenica Seven trial, the defense counsel of Drago Nikolic and Ljubomir Borovcanin have pointed out that the prosecution has misrepresented the role of their clients in the Srebrenica crimes and covered up some potentially exculpatory evidence
THE HAGUE | 07.09.2009.
Life sentence is the ‘only punishment that can be sought for these accused’, the prosecution argued as it continued with the closing argument at the trial of Bosnian Serb military and police officers charged with crimes in Srebrenica and Zepa. The defense of Vujadin Popovic denied the responsibility of the Drina Corps security officer, calling for his acquittal of all charges
THE HAGUE | 04.09.2009.
At the end of its closing argument, the prosecution refrained from calling for a specific sentence for the seven Bosnian Serb military and police officers charged with genocide and other crimes committed in Srebrenica and Zepa in July 1995. SENSE has learned that the prosecution has put that in its confidential final brief
