Along with Bosnian war criminal Praljakwho killed himself at The Hague, genocidal General Ratko Mladic was sentenced to life imprisonment. Now the families of the victims of Europe's worst mass killing since WWII are getting justice.
He's the third defendant to commit suicide at the international criminal court.
Uber covered up massive cyberattack, ousted VP to take power in Zimbabwe, Navy aircraft crashes off Japan's coast, and more.
He did not take the sentencing well. As the judge read his verdict, Mladic demanded a toilet break, during which his blood pressure was taken three times before the defense counsel asked for the hearing to be suspended.
In a rare move, a judge reopened the case of Gen. Ratko Mladic, allowing prosecutors to present new evidence from a mass grave discovered in 2013.
In July 1995, more than 8,000 “Bosniaks” (Bosnian Muslims) were systematically killed by Serb soldiers in what is sometimes called the lone act of European genocide since World War II. It was the culmination of three years of ethnic cleansing.
