PANDUREVIC BLAMES MLADIC, BEARA AND POPOVIC FOR GENOCIDE

DRAGO NIKOLIC ARGUES HE WAS ‘NOBODY’

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.

The prosecution called for a harsher sentence for the man who ‘did everything to make the killing machinery function smoothly’ in July 1995

The prosecutor responded that the Srebrenica genocide centered on the murders in which Beara had played a key role
