Serb Republic to Take Netherlands to Court

The Republika Srpska (RS), one of the two entities which make up Bosnia, will take the Netherlands to court. Its Prime Minister Milorad Dodik claims that the Dutch UN troops have not protected the inhabitants of the Serb villages in the neighborhood of Srebrenica against attacks by Bosnian Muslims. He said that in the Bosnian civil war between 1992 and 1995, thousands of Serbs were killed by Muslims in that area. The attackers came from the zone supposedly being protected by the Dutch UN troops. The Netherlands had already earlier been taken to court by organizations of family members of Bosnian Muslims who were murdered in Srebrenica by Bosnian Serb troops.
