On Friday 19 July 2019, the Dutch Supreme Court ruled that the Dutch state had 10% liability for the deaths of 350 men and boys while under the protection of Dutch UN peacekeepers in July 1995, in a final verdict that ends a years-long legal battle between the Dutch state and the claimants, the Mothers of […]

The UK’s All Party Parliamentary Group on Srebrenica welcomes the decision of the International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals that found Radovan Karadžić guilty of genocide of Muslims in Srebrenica in 1995 and sentenced him to life in prison.

Thank you @messageheard and @SrebrenicaUK for the powerful #UntoldKilling series. Important listening for those interested in learning about violent nationalism, ethnic cleansing and genocide denial from survivors and witnesses. Episode four was especially heartbreaking.
We must remember what happened in the past so that it will never happen again. Remembering #Srebrenica and #Rwanda should serve as lessons to prevent future Genocide. https://t.co/TLQdNPV2Fe
