“The Secretary-General takes note of the delivery by the International Residual Mechanism for the Criminal Tribunals of the appeals judgment in the case against Ratko Mladić, the former commander of the Bosnian Serb armed forces. The Secretary-General’s thoughts are with the victims, survivors and their families who have suffered genocide, crimes against humanity and violations of the laws or customs of war for which Mr. Mladić has been found guilty. The Secretary-General calls on all those in position of power to refrain from denying the seriousness of the crimes that have been adjudicated and notes that accountability constitutes an essential step for reconciliation in the region. The final judgment in the case against Mr. Mladić is one of the highest-ranking officials to be tried by the International Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia and by the Residual Mechanism. This a reflection of the international community’s commitment to international criminal justice and the fight against impunity. It is another vital step towards coming to terms with the past to build a more resilient, secure, and hopeful future for all citizens and residents of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the wider region. The Secretary-General expresses his deep appreciation for the dedication and hard work of the judges and the staff involved in this case since 1995, when the first indictment was filed. We remain fully committed to supporting efforts towards achieving accountability and justice for all.”

STORYLINE
Secretary-General Antonio Guterres today (8 Jun) issued a statement on the delivery by the International Residual Mechanism for the Criminal Tribunals of the appeals judgment in the case against Ratko Mladić, the former commander of the Bosnian Serb armed forces, calling “on all those in position of power to refrain from denying the seriousness of the crimes that have been adjudicated.”

The statement, read by spokesperson Stéphane Dujarric, noted that Mladić “is one of the highest-ranking officials to be tried by the International Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia and by the Residual Mechanism” and the judgment is “a reflection of the international community’s commitment to international criminal justice and the fight against impunity” and “another vital step towards coming to terms with the past to build a more resilient, secure and hopeful future for all citizens and residents of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the wider region.”

The Secretary-General, Dujarric said, “expresses his deep appreciation for the dedication and hard work of the judges and the staff involved in this case since 1995, when the first indictment was filed.”

Mladić was convicted of genocide and persecution, extermination, murder, and the inhumane act of forcible transfer in the area of Srebrenica in 1995; of persecution, extermination, murder, deportation, and inhumane act of forcible transfer in municipalities throughout BiH; of murder, terror, and unlawful attacks on civilians in Sarajevo; and of hostage-taking of UN personnel. He was acquitted of the charge of genocide in several municipalities in BiH in 1992.
