DUTCHBAT "SREBRENICA, THE WORST HUMILIATION OF DUTCH ARMY"
Former Dutch UN peacekeeper Boudewijn Kok speaking to The Sunday Telegraph on the arrest of Ratko Mladic and the Bosnian Genocide, the first genocide on European soil since the end of Second World War:
"We knew the Muslims would suffer, but we had no idea there would be so much killing. Mladic had reassured them that they would be well treated. Well they weren't. The Nazis deported people on trains; the Serbs used buses."
"The Serbs killed so many because they wanted a greater Serbia, and Srebrenica was on the border with Serbia in an important area of Bosnia for them."
"They were like no people I have ever met. I looked into the eyes of Serbian soldiers and I saw death. There was no colour, no joy or life there."
"I believe the UN wanted the safe areas to be ended because they were prolonging the war. I think the UN had done a secret deal with the Serbs, allowing them to take over Srebrenica. But nobody realised beforehand that this terrible killing would take place. I blame Mladic for that."
