联合国法庭将宣布对“波斯尼亚屠夫”米拉季奇的判决 UN Tribunal to Decide Fate of ‘Butcher of Bosnia' Mladic





United Nations judges in The Hague are set to deliver a verdict Wednesday in the trial of former Bosnian Serb army leader Ratko Mladic, who is accused of war crimes stemming from the conflict in the former Yugoslavia during the 1990s.

Mladic, known as the "Butcher of Bosnia," is the last former military leader to face war crimes charges in the court, which was set up to deal with the aftermath of the Bosnian war that raged from 1992 through 1995.

Mladic, who has been on trial since 2012, has been charged with 11 counts of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity for his alleged role in leading sniper campaigns in Sarajevo and the 1995 killings of more than 8,000 Muslim men and boys in Srebrenica — the worst massacre in Europe since World War Two.

Prosecutors have asked the International Criminal Tribunal to sentence Mladic to life in prison.
