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!
HEADLINE: United Nations Human Rights Monitor Loses Mandate, Claims U.S. Pressure
INTRO: A university law professor says his position as an independent U.N. human rights investigator in Afghanistan was abolished under diplomatic pressure from Washington. The United States denies the charge, saying the human rights situation in Afghanistan has sufficiently improved to the point that a special monitor is no longer needed. VOA correspondent Gary Thomas reports from Washington.
TEXT: Charif Bassiouni says his job as a U.N. independent expert on human rights in Afghanistan was not renewed late last month because of his attempts to look into alleged rights abuses by U.S. forces.
Mr. Bassiouni, a professor of law at DePaul University in Chicago, had expected a routine two-year renewal by the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights when his mandate expired last month. But, talking from his Chicago office, Mr. Bassiouni, who had previously served as chairman of the U.N. Security Council's commission investigating war crimes in the former Yugoslavia, says he was warned that there was diplomatic pressure not to extend his Afghan mandate...
Well not really although it is unusual they last as along as he has. I have run into him before and a few others. But I do know what you mean you normally discuss things with logical people here, however; there are dhimmi excuse making fools many in government itself.
I really come here to read and occassionally post but its a waste of time to even talk with people who don't understand that TROP is at war with the world and Kosovo is the next Afghanistan in the making, thanks to BJ Clinton.
So, it's rather hypocritical that a citizen of a country which doesn't recognize the court for itself (U.S.) will use that court to attack another country. This shows it is being used vindictively and as a political weapon.
He later resigned from the case - after it got going - and some speculated it might be because he is ethnic Irish and dabbled in some issues concerning the IRA or something.
Dr. Francis Anthony Boyle, is a professor of international law at the University of Illinois College of Law. He is a graduate of the University of Chicago and Harvard Law School. He also received a Ph. D. in political science from Harvard University.
Between 1988 and 1992 Boyle was a member of the board of Amnesty International USA. He threatened to sue Amnesty for what he perceived as bias in its coverage of abuses against Palestinians' human rights; he has since been a critic of the organization. Boyle also charged that Amnesty's staff had been infiltrated by US and UK security services (see Covert Action interview below).
From 1991 to 1993, Boyle was a legal advisor to the Palestine Liberation Organization. Boyle is currently attorney of record for the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria and a member of the Nobel Peace Prize for Governor George H. Ryan Committee.
Professor Boyle is a controversial figure at the University of Illinois. He worked to prevent a war between the United States and Libya in the 1990s, and speaks fondly of his interactions with Muammar al-Qaddafi. Professor Boyle has taken a strong stand against the actions taken by the United States in Afghanistan and Iraq following the September 11, 2001, attacks. He nevertheless maintains a highly visible public profile for a law professor, making appearances on such interview shows as Fox's The O'Reilly Factor and Moneyline with Lou Dobbs.
Boyle is a United States citizen, but also holds honorary citizenship of Bosnia-Herzegovina, which he received in 1993 while he was an adviser to Bosnian war-time president Alija Izetbegoviæ.
Boyle has also taken a strong stand in favor of Hawaiian independence and against a University of Illinois "pub crawl" that occurs on St. Patrick's Day, arguing that the latter is offensive to persons of Irish nationality. In the former he uses a resolution signed by former U.S. President Bill Clinton apologizing for U.S. involvement in the overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy as justification for Hawaiian independence. In the latter, he filed a complaint with the U.S. Department of Justice's Civil Rights Division, claiming that he had to endure a "hostile work environment."
In 2002, Boyle protested a speech by Ruth Wedgwood, a law professor performing consulting work for the Bush administration, by equating her advocacy of military tribunals in the War on Terror to kangaroo courts. He underlined this point by accompanying an individual dressed in an anthropomorphic kangaroo costume, referred to as "Wedgie the Kangaroo".
More recently Boyle has been on the vanguard of movement to impeach U.S. President George W. Bush.
Francis Boyle: 9/11 was allowed to happen, anthrax was inside job
International law and war crimes expert Francis A Boyle says 9/11 was allowed to happen, war on terror is facilitating the downfall of The Republic, concentration camps are in place and US citizens are the targets...
It's good to see Bassiouni, who is a most successful islamist underminer, taken down a peg for once!
But he needs to be exposed, and all that he has done to destroy our country and our civilization needs to be dismantled!!!!
The US DOES recognize the International Court of Justice (aka World Court) where the suit was brought.
It does not recognize the International Criminal "Court" (ICC, designed and championed by Cherif Bassiouni).
But our government is against the ICC for the wrong reason. If it were against it for the right reason, it would join me in saying, "Abolish ICTY"!!!
Ah, yes, the classic professional "human rightser" and total Dhimmwit!!!!
The other one of his ilk who was also an honorary citizen of "Bosnia-Herzegovina", and of Sarajevo, was the late lesbian "intellectual" Susan Sontag.
The Karbala incident was done by arabs that had a few Chechnyans in the mix. There were a few that were "blonde"... go figure, ehh?
It makes no difference what you give hippylite, he has an agenda and even if you had photo's, trial witnesses face to face with the boy, it would make no difference. Its a total waste of time. However, the one good part is that you can use this individual when you need to as a conduit to express your facts and spread the truth. He is a vehicle to use for this purpose. :) You are right on target and I agree with you completely.
my gosh it was hilarious he was attempting to spread more lies and using that picture as it were "today". lol
Try this one...and thoughout the day, I will submit more as they are found.
"ACTOR'S VOICE, HICKS' AUSTRALIAN FEDERAL POLICE INTERVIEW: At that time Kosovo was dominating the media and after watching that I just had something inside that said I had to go and do that, like a spur of the moment sort of thing. I was watching the briefings. I found out there was one group and they were training in northern Albania. They were going into Kosovo and I realised that maybe, at a wild guess, I could go there and try it and I did it. To me that was doing the impossible.
DEBBIE WHITMONT: But by the time David Hicks got there, the war in Kosovo between Serbia and Kosovo's Albanian majority was almost over. Hicks trained for four weeks with the KLA and signed up with NATO. But then there was a peace deal and Hicks and other foreign volunteers were sent home under NATO orders. This photo was taken in Albania on his first day of training - as a posed souvenir - with weapons borrowed from a storeroom.
MAJOR MICHAEL (DAN) MORI, HICKS' MILITARY ATTORNEY: If you actually look at that time, the KLA was being supported by the United States of America, um, there were rallies within the United States supporting the KLA.
DEBBIE WHITMONT: Major Dan Mori, a marine, is the lawyer appointed by the Defense Department to represent David Hicks. Mori has been to the Balkans. He says Hicks never even made it to Kosovo - he never got across the Albanian border.
MAJOR MICHAEL (DAN) MORI, HICKS' MILITARY ATTORNEY: I've been to Kosovo. I spoke to people that knew him from when he got there, the day he left and David Hicks never fought in Kosovo.
DEBBIE WHITMONT: Though the KLA were Muslims, David Hicks, at that stage, wasn't. He told the Australian Federal Police he joined the KLA to help the Kosovo people.
they are eat up with it.....Hey, Looks like I'll be leaving between now and the middle of next month.
Hang in there in watch your 6......
Let me know where you will be for Labor Day weekend. Did you check out that link for audio NPR with my vehicle discovering a daisy chain of IEDs?
yes....there are more to come. Some serious jockying around there to get the war escalated. The axis powers and the "friendlies" are setting the stage shortly.
Labor day....?? good question for now.
This is old but interesting.....
This is new and the biggest bunch of brown stuff that you have ever read. It makes you wonder who is "MENTORING" them.....:)) duh!!! Internationals will shortly be on the endangered list.....as expected in 1999. It was only a matter of time and they have had PLENTY of warning. The U.S. has did nothing to control this and could of. I venture a guess that is has actually been orchestrated to happen this way with an agenda yet to be filled. The UN and EU.....lolol....right on our tail like the little puppy dogs they are. Actually we are behind the scenes actively engaged, in my humble opinion, the British insiders are pulling the strings.
Guys, you should have included a warning to those who are allergic to nuts.
***** Imagine that...."hows in da world did he git all da way in Bosnia??" Bet he knows some folks in high places that speaks English with an American accent. :))
Maybe not Iraq or Afghanistan, but my bets are Afghanistan at some time....as well as Saudi. Got to keep it in the family you know.
New Document Raises Khobar Issue
Gitmo Detainee Abuse Release Contains Record of Interrogation For Suspect In Khobar Towers Bombing; Detainee Was In U.S. On 9/11, Left Country Three Weeks Later
By J.M. Berger
"But in 1995, he traveled to Bosnia, where he served alongside al Qaeda-linked Muslim fighters. The detainee claimed he was merely the unit's cook, but he displayed knowledge of al Qaeda-linked charities and fighting units in Bosnia during the interview with FBI agents. The detainee subsequently traveled to Chechnya, another al Qaeda-linked hot-spot.
thanks for all the links!
It's criminal the number of links between Afghanistan, to Bosnia to Croatia, to Kosovo to 911 to Iraq back to Afghanistan to CIA to ...and it just keeps going in a very interesting "circle" of acquaintences. These boys get around if they live long enough. :) I'm beginning to think that Bosnia, Albania, Montenegro and Macedonia is their "safe" training and R&R areas before they blow more things up.
And let's not forget Osama bin Laden.
Oh, there is another factor and it's not Islamic facists alone. They are and have been working with several "Western Groups" that are very near and dear to us in the USA since the Russians left Afghanistan. The groups that I'm talking about, that has been working with these Muslims and Islamist are are own CIA, ISI, Iranian Intel, Saudi Intel, and we moved them from Afghan to Bosnia to stir up the trouble in Bosnia. We started it in 1948.
Google "Frank Wisner, SR" Google Operation Fiend in Albania and CIA. You will be very surprises at how deep we are it from 1948 to now......and pushing the envelope supporting the Islamist all the way against the Serbs. Also reference Operation Storm, in Croatia....wild wild wild.
I'll do it thanks.......
Instead, bin Laden is the false icon that Dhimmwits and "human rightsers" venerate!!!!
By the way, I put the keyword DHIMMWIT on this thread for the usual--Hoppy/Helot--reason. But now posts about even bigger Dhimmwits have appeared here, so the keyword is approporate indeed!!!!
Bin Laden was ours until he went off scope, died of the kidney thing, or who knows. CIA trained him to take on the soviets, then took the Muh., made QL Qaeda an item, which was the same as the MUH. from Afghan, to conduct operations in Bosnia, stirring up Milosevic, thus causing him to respond with a heavy hand; but, not like the MSM lied about....then Demonized him, (which wasn't hard to do), and continued the road to achieve an independent Kosovo. In the meantime, they knew a 911 event needed to be conducted in order to justify targeting the Islamic camp in order to get WWIII on the road to its start.....I'll stop there. I know its a lot of swallow but this is only scratching the surface...lolol :) you haven't seen anything yet. They're just warming up.
"...he was an adviser to Bosnian war-time president Alija Izetbegovic."
That was all I needed to hear.
