However, in the process at a a civil court in The Hague the jury has made the state Netherlands (Dutch) for the deaths of more than 300 Muslim men and boys civilly responsible for the Srebrenica massacre.
Netherlands is in complicity in the deaths of the men. The men were deported from the camp of the Dutch UN peace-keepers in Potocari on 13 July 1995, the judge, Larissa Elwin, ruled on Wednesday July 16 in The Hague.
The plaintiff was the union of the "Mothers of Srebrenica" and relatives of victims of the massacre during the Bosnian war. During the 4 years war, in July 1995, Serbian forces had overrun the UN "Safe Heaven", Srebrenica, and killed around 8,000 Muslims.
The Dutch UN peace-keepers were ill equipped and were unable to defend the Enclave, so they were handing the territory they had agreed to defend to the Bosnian Serb Army under the command of General Ratko Mladic without exchanging a single bullet, but sharing a few glasses of champagne.
To the defense of the Dutch UN peace-keepers must be said that the then HRSG Akashi did not allow the then UNPF force commander Brigade General Mike Rose to help the Dutch UN peace-keepers. But this of course was not being discussed in the mainstream media.
The Srebrenica massacre later was used by Western powers to justify their illegal war against Serbia with the argument to stop a wave of Kosovo Albanian refugees sweeping into Europe. This then was a template for all invasions that followed in other regions across the world.
