Dutch Supreme Court

From: Dutch News.

The Dutch state is responsible for the death of three Muslim men during the siege of Srebrenica during the Yugoslavia war in 1995, the Dutch supreme court (Hoge Raad) has declared.

After the fall of the enclave, effective control passed from the United Nations to the Dutch army, which was the responsibility of the Dutch state, the court said in its long-awaited ruling.

Relatives of the three men, who were murdered after the Dutch army sent them out of the compound, have been involved in a legal campaign since 2002.
