Following the delivery of a long-awaited final verdict in the genocide and war crimes trial of former Bosnian Serb political leader Radovan Karadzic, Eduard Kukan, Member of the European Parliament’s Committee on Foreign Affairs and Chairman of the EU-Serbia SAPC, stated:
“For over a decade, the families and loved ones of the victims were waiting for the end of Radovan Karadzic’s trial. Today’s verdict marks the end of Europe’s most tragic recent history.
I would like to stress the importance of respecting the Tribunal’s final verdict.
At these difficult moments, my thoughts are with all the families and close ones of the victims. I can only hope that this judgement will bring them a sense of justice. Let us dedicate a minute of silence and remember those who have passed away during the genocide and war crimes in Bosnia and Herzegovina.”
