Butcher of Bosnia: Ratko Mladic genocide appeal dismissed at UN court

International Editor

United Nations judges have upheld the convictions of the former Bosnian Serb military chief Ratko Mladic for masterminding genocide and other crimes during the Bosnian war. His appeal was dismissed “in its entirety” by the court in the Hague, meaning he will spend the rest of his life behind bars.

Troops under Mladic’s command carried out a series of atrocities, from ethnic cleansing campaigns to the massacre at Srebrenica.
