Netherlands: Serbian survivors and protesters rally outside court during Mladic trial

SOT, Kelima Dautovic, 1992 Keraterm and Trnopolje concentration camps survivors (English): «He said that, you know, that hopefully justice is going to be done by the verdict today and the message would go a long way that, never again, even though that this 'never again' is really wishful thinking, nevertheless that us as survivors would like *INAUDIBLE* a serious conviction would send a message to... Еще anyone — it doesn't matter you know of where in this world — doesn't matter of the race, that people stop suffering, you know, and for that it will not happen again. Especially, you know, this kind of *INAUDIBLE*». Tens of Serbian prison camps survivors, family members of victims, and activists, protested in front of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in the Hague, Wednesday, during the trial of former Bosnian Serb commander Ratko Mladic. Mladic was recently found guilty of genocide and crimes against humanity by a UN judge. Organisations such as the Mothers of Srebrenica, the society for threatened peoples and others demonstrated in front of the court, waiting for the hearing. Fikret Alic, a survivor of the Keraterm and Trnopolje death camps in northwest Bosnia and Herzegovina, was in attendance. Alic became a figurehead for Bosnian suffering during the war after his picture from the camps appeared on the cover of a 1992 Time Magazine edition. The ICTY heard from 591 witnesses and examined nearly 10,000 exhibits concerning 106 separate crimes. Mladic is being examined for genocide at Srebrenica in July 1995, where more than 7,000 Muslim men and boys were killed, mostly by summary execution. Radovan Karadžić, the former Bosnian Serb political leader at the time, was found guilty of genocide last year.
