DID YOU KNOW?  -- Three years before the 1995 Srebrenica Genocide, Serbs torched Bosniak villages and killed at least 3,166 Bosniaks around Srebrenica. In 1993, the UN described the besieged situation in Srebrenica as a "slow-motion process of genocide." In July 1995, Serbs forcibly expelled 25,000 Bosniaks, brutally raped many women and girls, and systematically killed 8,000+ men and boys (DNA confirmed).

''The scale and nature of the murder operation, with the staggering number of killings, the systematic and organised manner in which it was carried out, the targeting and relentless pursuit of the victims, and the plain intention - apparent from the evidence - to eliminate every Bosnian Muslim male who was captured or surrendered proves beyond reasonable doubt that this was genocide.''

In Popovic et al. trial judgement, three high ranking Bosnian Serb officials were found guilty of Srebrenica Genocide. Two Bosnian Serbs were convicted of genocide and sentenced to life imprisonment for the 1995 massacre of 8,000 Bosniaks in Srebrenica. A third Bosnian Serb officer was given a 35-year prison sentence for aiding and abetting genocide. Two others were acquitted of genocide charges but convicted of extermination, murder and persecution, while a final two officers were found guilty of lesser charges of war crimes. Sentences for those four ranged from 5 to 19 years.
