Sre­brenica chief ac­quit­ted of crimes

The Scotsman - - News Digest -

A Bos­nian ap­peals court has ac­quit­ted the wartime com­man­der of Sre­brenica, who was ac­cused of com­mit­ting atroc­i­ties dur­ing the 1992-95 Balkan con­flict.

Naser Oric was ac­cused of killing three Serb prison­ers of war in vil­lages around Sre­brenica in the early days of the con­flict.

A panel of judges ruled that the pros­e­cu­tion did not present ev­i­dence prov­ing the case against Oric. This was the se­cond time that Oric was ac­quit­ted in a trial which opened in Jan­uary 2016.
