International Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) has completed most of the work and this month will cease to exist. On Wednesday, December 6, at the meeting of the UN security Council said the President of the Tribunal Carmel Agius, reports TASS.
Abandoned after sentencing, the chief of the armed forces of Republika Srpska Ratko Mladic and consideration of appeals in the case of the former head of the government of the Croatian state formation of Herceg-Bosna Jadranko Prlic. “Both the verdict was a landmark, and behind them followed closely around the world,” said Carmel Agius.
The ICTY was established in 1993 and located in the Hague. The Tribunal had the mandate of the UN security Council. He handles cases related to war crimes, genocide and crimes against humanity during the wars in the former Yugoslavia from 1991 to 2001. Among the defendants was former President of Serbia and the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia Slobodan Milosevic.
The last sentence was delivered Ratko Mladic: he was sentenced to life imprisonment. The recent decision of the ICTY is to uphold the sentence of 20 years imprisonment Jadranko Prlić and five Bosnian Croats. One of them is General Slobodan Praljak — during the announcement of the decision drank poison and later died.
