UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — The UN court in The Hague on Wednesday sentenced former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic to life imprisonment for the Srebrenica genocide.
The International Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia in 2016 found Karadzic guilty of massacres in Srebrenica in 1995 during the Bosnian War, sentencing him to 40 years in prison.
The verdict was challenged both by Karadzic himself and by the prosecutors.
The UN court upheld the verdict, but called the preventive measure too soft, given the severity of the crimes committed by Karadzic and the degree of his responsibility.
