3.SOUNDBITE (English) Serge Brammertz, Prosecutor of the International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals:
“Today, too many perpetrators in conflicts around the world still use their power to cause suffering. Too any commanders still treat innocent lives as inconsequential. There are sadly still too many people like Mladić. Justice matters because it is how we condemn and punish great wrongs, so they are not repeated. That’s why, today is not only about what we have achieved but about what there is still to be achieved.”

5.SOUNDBITE (English) Serge Brammertz, Prosecutor of the International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals:
“Many of Mladić’s accomplices and subordinates still need to be held accountable for their crimes, as must many other war crimes perpetrators in all the countries of the former Yugoslavia. That’s why my office’s first strategic priority to assist national jurisdictions prosecuting international crimes committed in former Yugoslavia and in Rwanda.”

7.SOUNDBITE (English) Serge Brammertz, Prosecutor of the International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals:
“Denial and glorification [of Srebrenica genocide] continue to be treated as differences of opinion or arguments about legal terms. They are not. The reality is that the denial and glorification are the final stage of genocide. They are political tools for political purposes. Urgent action is needed.”

STORYLINE
“There are sadly still too many people like Mladić,” the Prosecutor of the International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals Serge Brammertz told the Security Council following the announcement of conviction of Ratko Mladić, the former commander of the Bosnian Serb armed forces of genocide and persecution during Balkans wars 1992-1995.

On Tuesday (8 Jun) the judges of the UN International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals upheld the verdict by which Mladić was convicted of genocide and persecution, extermination, murder, and the inhumane act of forcible transfer in the area of Srebrenica in 1995; of persecution, extermination, murder, deportation, and inhumane act of forcible transfer in municipalities throughout BiH; of murder, terror, and unlawful attacks on civilians in Sarajevo; and of hostage-taking of UN personnel. He was acquitted of the charge of genocide in several municipalities in BiH in 1992.

Briefing the Security Council on the workings of the Tribunal hours after the conviction announcement, Brammertz said “justice matters because it is how we condemn and punish great wrongs, so they are not repeated. That’s why, today is not only about what we have achieved but about what there is still to be achieved.”

The UN Prosecutor also said that “many of Mladić’s accomplices and subordinates still need to be held accountable for their crimes, as must many other war crimes perpetrators in all the countries of the former Yugoslavia,” and warned against the rising “denial and glorification” of the genocide in Srebrenica in Serbia, Montenegro and Republika Srpska.

“Denial and glorification continue to be treated as differences of opinion or arguments about legal terms. They are not. The reality is that the denial and glorification are the final stage of genocide. They are political tools for political purposes. Urgent action is needed,” Brammertz said.
