"After a thorough investigation by the Independent International Commission of Inquiry on the Sufferings of All People in the Srebrenica region between 1992 - 1995, it is concluded that neither an individual crime of genocide nor genocide at all took place in Srebrenica. Although the Commission does not consider the killings around Srebrenica genocide, it acknowledges the fact that thousands of people (mostly prisoners of war) were killed in the most horrific way and that those responsible for these heinous crimes should be punished", the Commission's conclusions read.
