The Hague has announced that it will announce the sentencing of former General of the Army of Republika Srpska, Ratko Mladić, on November 22nd. According to B92, “In two counts of the indictment, General Mladić is charged with genocide, while the rest concern persecution, extermination, murders, deportations, forcible transfer of population, illegal attacks on civilians and the taking of international hostages.” Mladić was in command when the Srebrenica Massacre took place – Republika Srpska forces overran Dutch UN safe havens and systematically murdered over 7,000 ethnic Bosniak men and boys.He was finally arrested in November 2011 after many years of hiding. His day of reckoning has come. (B92)
