Skip to comments.Report: Court to reject Bosnia's genocide lawsuit (Bosnia vs. Serbia)
Posted on 02/15/2007 6:04:30 AM PST by kronos77
THE HAGUE -- The International Court of Justice today decides on Bosnia’s genocide lawsuit against FRY.
The lawsuit, brought against the former Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (FRY) in 1993, claims that FRY was responsible for alleged genocide that took place during the 1992-1995 war in Bosnia.
The United Nation’s highest court’s ruling in the case will be presented to the public on February 26, by Judge Rosaline Higgins, on behalf of a panel of 15 judges.
Belgrade daily Blic reports today quoting from sources close to the court that Serbia will not be found guilty of having committed genocide against Bosnia.
The daily reports the International Court of Justice will rule that although war crimes against the Bosniaks and Croats have undoubtedly been perpetrated by Serbs, Bosnia’s lawsuit will be rejected on grounds of insufficient evidence that genocide took place on a state level.
The former state union of Serbia and Montenegro (SCG) disputed the International Court of Justice’s jurisdiction in the case, stating that at the time the lawsuit was brought against it, FRY was not a UN member-state.
The country’s legal team also rejected claims that genocide took place in Bosnia, and that official Belgrade could be held responsible for the crimes that occurred during the war in that country.
I sope so, so that I can for once say that there is a glimp of justice in International Justice System.
"They have been fighting the War on Terror for decades"
Since 14th century...
Thanks I had almost forgotten that. By the way do you know of some good websites with a good written history.
Not now, but I will send links to you soon
And we saw the thanks we got the other day in Utah.
IIRC there have been many terrorists captured and killed in Iraq and Afghanistan which were trained in Kosovo and Albania. But it never seems to make the MSM evening propaganda.
Remember, this is the old World Court, originally founded under the League of Nations, to try cases between nations.
It is NOT the ICTY or the ICC, both of which are completely illegitimate kangaroo "courts", devised by the islamist fifth columnst Charif Bassiouni.
It is too bad that that illegitimate entity known as "Bosnia" is considered to have standing to bring cases before the World Court, however!
You don't remember correctly. There is an Albanian Army contingent operating as part of the coalition in Iraq, but as far as the much yearned for connection between Serbia's muslim opponents in the Balkans and our opponents in Iraq and Afghanistan, that's turned out to be nothing more than yet another failed Serbian disinformation campaign which still chalks up individual victims such as yourself.
Either way it doesn't change the fact that what happened in Kosovo was a total disaster of misinformation put out by Albanian propagandists. The fact is while Milisovic was a bad character there wasn't a "genocide" going on but a war against the same terrorists we fight today.
A December 31, 1999, article in the Wall Street Journal (coincidentally, by Daniel Pearl) reported that allegations of indiscriminate mass murder, rape camps, crematoriums, mutilation of the dead havent been borne out in the six months since NATO troops entered Kosovo. Ethnic-Albanian militants, humanitarian organizations, NATO and the news media fed off each other to give genocide rumors credibility. Now, a different picture is emerging.
Of course not - the effort required to be correct isn't worth the time, and would leave you with little, if anything, to say on the matter.
Know I looked at your previous posts and its clear you have a agenda. I have no intention to argue with someone who doesn't care about facts. There are no facts which will change your mind, you won't even acknowledge them.
Posting to you is a total waste of good time, Good bye.
Of course - it's you who called BS on me and I'm the one who couldn't cite a source to back up my claim.
How on earth did I ever get it backwards?
ever get it backwards"
Real easy Hoplite, real easy!
With this transfer, approximately 335 detainees have departed Guantanamo for other countries including Albania, Afghanistan, Australia, Bahrain, Belgium, Denmark, Egypt, France, Germany, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Maldives, Morocco, Pakistan, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Sweden, Sudan, Tajikistan, Turkey, Uganda, United Kingdom, and Yemen.
Yeah right no connection!!!!!! I'm done with you.
So lemme get this straight - you don't have anything supporting that statement, so you're now going to reference things which don't support your claim but are related to Albania?
How hard would it have been to check your own facts before posting them so as to avoid my doing it and shoving them right back down your throat?
Yeah, too hard, I know - you should have stuck with the "I'm done with you" thing the first time you said it.
Isn't it amazing to find such a dedicated Dhimmi playing kneepad-wearing cheerleader for the Jihadists at a place like Free Republic? Yet, he's still here and you've had the unfortunate luck to meet him.
Hang in there and keeping fighting the good fight (that means against the Jihadists for our Dhimmi friend).
thanks for the ping!
