Bosnian Serb Acquitted on Genocide Charges

From Times Wire Reports

A Bosnian Serb accused of commanding a notorious detention camp where hundreds of Muslims and Croats were killed, tortured and raped was acquitted of genocide.

Dusko Sikirica, 37, alleged commander of Keraterm camp, had pleaded not guilty to genocide, complicity to commit genocide, crimes against humanity and violating the laws or customs of war.

He was the first camp commander in Bosnia-Herzegovina to face the Yugoslavia war crimes tribunal in The Hague on a genocide charge. His trial continues on the other charges.
