The Making of International Criminal Justice

Theodor Meron

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents Theodor Meron's speech at Potočari Memorial Cemetery. He shares his special wish to visit the cemetery because he had the privilege of sitting as the Presiding Judge in the appeal which, for the first time, judicially recognized the crimes committed against the Bosnian Muslims in Srebrenica in 1995 as genocide. In that case, named Prosecutor versus Radislav Krstič, the Appeals Chamber of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia convicted one of the leaders of the Bosnian Serb assault on Srebrenica, General Radislav Krstič, for aiding and abetting genocide. In honor of the memory of the many victims of this crime lying in this cemetery, Meron reads a brief passage from the judgment in Krstič.

Keywords:   speech, Poto čari Memorial Cemetery, Bosnia and Herzegovina, genocide, General Radislav Krstič, former Yugoslavia
