More than 20 years after the genocide of Srebrenica, the UN announced war crimes Tribunal in The Hague today, the decisive verdict in the trial of Ex-Serbian leader Radovan Karadzic.

The now 73-Year-old was sentenced in 2016 in the first instance, to 40 years in prison for thousands of counts of murder, persecution and forced expulsions of Bosnian Muslims.

The former psychiatrist, Karadzic is considered to be politically-main responsible for the genocide of Srebrenica. In the former Balkan war, Serbian forces under General Ratko Mladic had overrun in the summer of 1995 the UN protection zone and then about 8000 Muslim men and boys murdered. Karadzic denies all the allegations and calls for acquittal. The prosecution wants to sentence a life imprisonment.
