No: 361, 22 November 2017, Press Release Regarding The Icty’s Judgement On The Mladiç Case

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 22.11.2017

International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) has sentenced Ratko Mladiç to life imprisonment for the crime of genocide, crimes against humanity, violations of the laws or customs of war and other crimes he committed during the armed conflict in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), between 1992 and 1995.

ICTY’s judgement on the Mladiç’s case, is of importance since it has proved that the courts which have exclusive competence to deal with such cases do not allow impunity for any crime committed against humanity.

We hope that the judgment will serve to social peace and reconciliation in Bosnia Herzegovina, and will set an example to avoid commitment of similar crimes in the ongoing conflicts in different parts of the world.
