The war crimes tribunal in Bosnia has sentenced seven Bosnian Serbs for a mass killing of Bosnian Muslims in Srebrenica in 1995 to four decades each in prison.
But the two-year trial ending a week after the long-awaited Karadzic arrest left relatives of the victims revolted that four others charged were acquitted due to a lack of evidence.
Munira Subasic lost her husband and sons in the massacre of 1,000 men at a warehouse. She said:
“It is outrageous. Where is justice? Their wives will see their husbands. Their sisters will see their brothers. Their mothers will see their sons. I am still looking for mine!”
Some of the killers fired machine guns at prisoners and one threw hand grenades at them. The genocide verdict announced in Sarajevo is the first since the Bosnian War Crimes Chamber began work in 2005. It was seen as a test case. It continues with others.
