Outreach Programme Takes Part in Belgrade Conference
The Tribunal’s Outreach programme today took part in a conference addressing war crimes committed in north-eastern town of Brčko during the conflict in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The conference, Brčko ’92 – Beyond Reasonable Doubt, took place in Belgrade and provided representatives of the Tribunal’s Outreach programme and Prosecution with an opportunity to present facts established in trials before the Tribunal.
This is the fifth such conference organised by the Belgrade-based NGO Humanitarian Law Center in cooperation with ICTY Outreach with the aim of bringing the work of the Tribunal closer to the general public in Serbia.
Audiences in Serbia have already been able to familiarise themselves with the trials and facts established by the Tribunal about the genocide in Srebrenica and crimes in Prijedor, Foča, and the Čelebići camp.
Two ICTY indictees pleaded guilty to crimes committed in Brčko. Goran Jelisić aka Serb Adolf was sentenced to 40 years and Ranko Češić to 18 years’ imprisonment.
