Wyrok w sprawie Ratko Mladicia na tle dotychczasowego orzecznictwa Międzynarodowego Trybunału Karnego dla byłej Jugosławii
Judgement in the Ratko Mladić Case and the Prior Jurisprudence of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia
Languages of publication
On 22 November 2017 the Trial Chamber of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia delivered its judgement in the Ratko Mladić case. The former Bosnian Serb general was found not guilty of count 1 of genocide (referring to the events that took place in the Municipalities) and guilty of all the other counts, in particular genocide committed in Srebrenica. Although this judgement is not final, its significance should not be underestimated. The trial of Ratko Mladić was one of the longest, most exhausting and complicated cases in the entire history of the Yugoslavian Tribunal. At the same time, this judgement was the crowning achievement of the Tribunal. Therefore, it seems necessary to interpret the judgment in the context of the entire prism of the jurisprudence of the Yugoslavian Tribunal in similar cases.
