Recently, Marco Van Hees and 15 former Dutchbat members met with the Belgrade-based Srebrenica genocide denier, Milivoje Ivanisevic, and offered to testify on behalf of Radovan Karadzic - former Bosnian Serb leader who publicly wowed to destroy the Bosnian Muslims from the face of Earth. Activist Dutch veterans, led by Van Hees, told Ivanisevic they had to "protect themselves from the Muslims, rather than protect Muslims from the Serbs" in Srebrenica. What they failed to mention is that Serb soldiers wore Dutch helmets and disguised themselves as UN peacekeepers to trick Bosniak men and boys of Srebrenica into surrendering. Then, they killed them.
His Dutch friend of Serbian orgin, Alexandar Gavrilovic (22), recently formed the so called Serbian Investigation Society in Tilburg, Netherlands. According to Serbia's daily Vecernje Novosti, Gavrilovic's parents - originally from Cacak, Serbia - came to the Netherlands 25 years ago. The Serbian Investigation Society is NGO active in translating Milivoje Ivanisevic's genocide denial material and distributing it in the Netherlands.
Their friend, Stefan Karganovic (info), is not by coincidence head of the so called Historical Project Srebrenica (Istorijski Projekat Srebrenica) - another Srebrenica genocide denial NGO located in the Netherlands. He recently announced a lawsuit against the UN and Netherlands because of the alleged "suffering of the Serb population in the UN safe haven." The Serbs, who never demilitarized around Srebrenica, were not even located inside the U.N. enclave known as 'Safe Haven' of Srebrenica. Instead, they were located in ethnically cleansed Muslim villages around Srebrenica. The Serb Army used those villages around the enclave to keep Srebrenica under the brutal siege, frequently preventing humanitarian aid from entering the enclave, as well as bombarding the town and killing its civilians.
Marco Van Hees is more popularly known by his outrageous claims that "no Dutchbat soldier saw or heard of either the killing or raping of the Muslim civilians in Bosnia," a claim Srebrenica genocide survivors fiercely disagree with (read this book: The United Nations on Srebrenica's Pillar of Shame: 104 testimonies). The Dutch 'peacekeepers' cowardly abandoned the people of Srebrenica in 1995 and left disgusting material behind themselves (see photos of Dutch graffiti in Srebrenica).
In a well scripted Srebrenica genocide denial propaganda, Van Hees twists facts and effectively blames victims for genocide,"There was a lot of crime among the Muslims themselves in Srebrenica… We could see the kind of atrocities Muslims were committing against the Serbs," - he said to Serbia's Vecernje Novosti.
