Activists from the Youth Initiative for Human Rights and other anti-war groups gathered in front of the Serbian presidency building on Sunday evening to light candles to commemorate victims of the genocide of Bosniaks from Srebrenica by Bosnian Serb forces in July 1995.
The activists also held up a banner with the slogan "It shouldn't happen to anyone again".
Prosecutor Serge Brammertz told BIRN in an interview ahead of Ratko Mladic's trial verdict on Tuesday that he believes the crimes by Bosnian Serb forces committed in five Bosnian municipalities in 1992 represented the beginning of a genocide in the country which culminated in Srebrenica in July 1995.
The outlook for a conviction appears unpromising. Some experts have pointed out that former Bosnian Serb political leader Radovan Karadzic has already been acquitted of committing genocide in 1992, while others believe that the Hague prosecution did not gather enough evidence to prove the charge because it focused its efforts and resources on Srebrenica.
