Ratko Mladic, the former Bosnian Serb commander is on trial at a UN Tribunal at The Hague. He is being charged with genocide. This comprises of: Crimes against humanity, War crimes and 11 counts of Genocide.If convicted he could face life imprisonment for the crimes he has perpetrated in the 1992-1995 war in which 100,000 were left dead. Mladic, gave his supporters a thumbs up gesture and clapped his hands as he entered the courtroom. later, he gestured to a Muslim women, running a hand across his throat.
This case has stirred up emotions in the Blakans, and the trial was shown live on TV stations.
Some victims fear that Mladic will die before the courts decide on his sentence as he suffered a possible stroke.
Justice should prevail and war criminals should know that they will always be hunted down. they are not safe, even if they have a double identity. I believe that even if he dies in the middle of the trial, the fact that he has always had to check his back is enough of a punishment, although of course a proper sentence is always better.
What do you think?
