Dutch court upholds Srebrenica deaths liability.

Srebrenica Genocide Memorial- CC via Flickr/ Mike Norton AMSTERDAM - 19 July 2019: The Dutch Supreme Court upheld Friday a lower court's ruling that the Netherlands is partially liable in the deaths of some 350 Muslim men who were murdered by Bosnian Serb forces during the 1995 Srebrenica massacre, according to ABC News. The Netherlands' highest court ruled that Dutch United Nations peacekeepers evacuated the men from their military base near Srebrenica on July 13, 1995, despite knowing that they "were in serious jeopardy of being abused and murdered" by Bosnian Serb forces. Presiding Judge Kees Streefkerk said "the state did act wrongfully" and told relatives of the dead they can now claim compensation from the Dutch government.
