The Netherlands is liable for the killings of more than 300 Bosnia Muslim man and boys in July, 1995, a Dutch court ruled Wednesday.

It happened in the village of Srebrenica, where in all more than 7,000 were killed in a genocidal spasm, by Bosnian Serb forces.

    Hi,
    “With Dutch court ruling, justice delayed but not denied”. I feel this ruling has two implications, Firstly the Dutch should not be delegated for international UN responsibility, secondly The International Court of Justice in the Hague should be relocated to a more appropriate land.

      What, in your eyes, is a more appropriate land? I think the Netherlands is one of the most modern countries. With it's freedom of speech and international service record. It definitely shouldn't go to less capible countries such as the USA, China, France or England...

    And who will serve justice to Muslims who kidnapped 300+ Christian girls in Nigeria and forced them to convert to Islam?

    As a dutch citizin i feel sorry for the people that died yes the netherlands had to protect them yes when the dutch saw tanks came in they asked air support they where refused , you can't defend against tanks with light rifles, they where outmatched and outgunned, they could either roll over and die or give the people away they should protect so they would become prisoners of wars at that time with names interternationally given to the UN no1 expected them to be murdered.

    Second did the dutch pull the trigger and murdered them? obviously not hence they where not the killers are we liable for their murders we would if we knew they would be murdered now we know they where but at that time we didn't.

    If this conviction stands i don't think the dutch or any country should send soldiers to any crisis under UN flag.

      So from your point of view the judges were biased or they did know all the facts and they made a decision. If that is true than certainly the offices should be shifted and new judges appointed who are more competent.
