BUENOS AIRES - The International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) was not aiming to achieve reconciliation but to prove the Serbs were the only ones to blame in the civil war in the former Yugoslavia, Serbian FM Ivica Dacic said in Buenos Aires in a comment on the tribunal's sentence to life imprisonment for Ratko Mladic.
Serbian Orthodox Patriarch has said that the Hague Tribunal verdict handed down to Ratko Mladic was "the work of the devil."
This was not the first time, the patriarch continued in a statement for the tabloid Alo, that it turns out only the Serbs are guilty for everything, while the others are innocent.
The work and practices of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) raise questions, Serbian lawyer Dr. Goran Djordjevic has told Sputnik, commenting on General Ratko Mladic's trial. The body not only failed to respond to its role, but also jeopardized the already violated system of international law, the lawyer said.
"Mothers of Srebrenica" president Munira Subasic claims that the association has the right to sue Serbia and the Serb Republic (RS).
She pointed out that this right "definitely exists after the first-instance verdict against Ratko Mladic," Croatia's Vecernji List reported in its edition for Bosnia-Herzegovina (BiH).
Subasic, however, did not further explain her claim.
The verdict to Ratko Mladic represents merely a continuation of the politicized and biased course taken by the Hague Tribunal (ICTY) during its work.
This was the message that came from Moscow a day after the tribunal sentenced the former military commander of Serbs in Bosnia to life in prison, finding him guilty of charges of genocide and war crimes.
After Ratko Mladic was convicted of genocide, Srebrenica survivors announced a lawsuit against Serbia and Republika Srpska - but legal experts said they have little chance of winning compensation.
