Srebrenica Survivors will Appeal against Dutch Court

A number of survivors of Srebrenica plan to appeal the decision of a Dutch court which has declared that the Dutch state is not responsible for the death of local employees during the Srebrenica genocide. The court decided that the UN is responsible, but it is immune to prosecution. The survivors claim that after the fall of Srebrenica to the Bosnian Serbs, the Dutch did nothing to ensure the safety of their local employees and their families while, at the same time, they were assisting in the deportation of Muslims (who were later murdered by the Bosnian Serbs).
