Blog Report: CRIMES/CRIMINALS OF FORMER YUGOSLAVIA/RWANDA POST TRIBUNALS? By Ambassador Mo
The International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals (IRMCT), presumably will ensure no impunity for those responsible for serious crimes committed in Rwanda & the Balkans in the 1990s, even after the two Tribunals close. The ICTY was set up in 1993 to deal with war crimes that took place during the conflicts in the former Yugoslavia in the 1990s.

ImageBlog Report: DISINGENUOUS (IN)ACTION GROUP ON SYRIA PEACE? By Ambassador Mo
The new Syria peace initiative is more of the same, in fact it is not even new. Quickly stitched together during “Action Group on Syria” conference in Geneva it does not pave a new road to peace as advertised. One final bad omen – just ask the Bosnians/Herzegovinians: You know you are at a dead end when your “peace conferences” move to Geneva.

Blog Report: RULE OF LAW ON ITS HEAD IN KARADZIC RULING IN BOSNIA & HERZEGOVINA? By AImagembassador Muhamed Sacirbey
Did Court succumb to political pressure or simply lapse in legal judgment in dismissing the broad genocide charge against Radovan Karadzic? You can read the Press Release from the ICTY below, but very briefly the judgment fails at least on 2 grounds.

From Diplomatically Incorrect: Al Jazeera Inside Story “WILL RATKO MLADIC ‘S TRIAL DELIVER JUSTICE?”
TV Link & commentary from interview with Ambassador Muhamed Sacirbey: “The Prosecutor, I think has done a good job of speaking of really a state-sponsored plan that continues to be executed today, because as Mladic goes on trial, refugees who were originally from Srebrenica now have been ethnically cleansed, not only can’t go back, they can’t even vote in elections for next local council & mayor.”

Blog Report: CHARLES TAYLOR – SLOBODAN MILOSEVIC, By Ambassador Muhamed Sacirbey
It was about plundering natural resources of a neighboring country & “bling” with armed “rebels”.
