Fifteen Years After Srebrenica Genocide: Dutch Prosecution Starts to Investigate

The Public Prosecution Office will [finally] start an investigation of the behavior of Dutch officers in Srebrenica fifteen years after the mass murders in which an estimated 8,000 Muslims were murdered by Bosnian Serbs. This was announced by Liesbeth Zegveld, the Dutch lawyer representing several survivors. The Public Prosecution Office has never taken any initiative in this matter. She presented complaints about Dutch Commanding Officer Thom Karremans, his deputy Granken and a personnel officer Oosterveen, who had handed over family members of the complainants to the Serbs.
