“More than 200 former Dutch UN peacekeepers have decided not to continue with their law suit against the Netherlands government over the 1995 Srebrenica massacre in Bosnia-Herzegovina, lawyers for the peacekeepers.

The 230 former peacekeepers sued the Dutch government in 2017, demanding at least 22,000 Euro ($22,626) compensation each, claiming they had been traumatized and socially ostracised following the Srebrenica genocide. The Dutch troops were deployed in the Srebrenica area which the UN declared a safe area when it was overrun by Bosnian Serb forces.” (N1)

“France has extradited to Bosnia a former ethnic Serb solider accused of taking part in the burning alive of more than 50 Muslim civilians during the country’s 1990s war, prosecutors said Sunday.

He was arrested in France in 2014 and released under court supervision before being arrested again earlier this month in Seine-Saint-Denis, a region north of Paris.

A Bosnian court charged him in 2017 with taking part in the incident in which members of Bosnian Serb military and paramilitary forces held Muslim civilians inside a house in Visegrad in eastern Bosnia, the statement said.” (Expatica)
