Dutch Srebrenica soldiers prepare huge claim against Dutch State

A group of veterans of the Dutchbat III unit prepared a huge claim against the Dutch state because were knowingly sent on an impossible mission to Srebrenica in 1995. The lawyers who represent them say that the claimants number more than 100 soldiers and some officers. Some of the soldiers still suffer from post-traumatic stress after Bosnian Serbian soldiers killed approximately 8000 Muslims from Srebrenica.  The commanding officer of Dutchbat III, Thom Karremans, said that the preparation of the unit was abominable.  Recently, Dutch Minister of Defense, Jeanine Hennis, said that it was known before the soldiers were sent there that the mission could not possibly be carried out.  It is expected that the lawyers will call Hennis to testify as a witness in the upcoming court case.
