The first official from Belgrade to be convicted of war crimes in Bosnia will begin an appeal against his sentence on Tuesday.
Former Yugoslav army chief Momcilo Perisic was sentenced to 27 years in jail after being convicted on 12 of 13 counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity.
In September 2011, Perisic was found guilty of aiding and abetting crimes against civilians during the 44-month siege of Sarajevo in the 1990s.
He was convicted of similar charges over Srebrenica in 1995, although none of mass extermination.
He was also convicted of failing to investigate rocket attacks on Zagreb in 1995 which left many dead.
Perisic will have ten minutes to address the court himself at his appeal hearing in the Hague.
