The former Bosnian Serb colonel Vidoje Blagojevic was sentenced on 17 January to 18 years\' imprisonment for complicity in genocide by the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY). The court recognised his responsibility in the Srebrenica massacres of July 1995 in which 7000 Bosnian Muslims were killed. The judges found that Blagojevic had participated in the forced transfer of populations, which was a constitutive part of the genocide. Blagojevic is the second person to be convicted of genocide by the ICTY.

"By planned and well-thought-out combat operations, create an unbearable situation of total insecurity with no hope of further survival or life for the inhabitants of Srebrenica and Zepa." Such were the instructions of President Radovan Karadzic in March 1995. The "purifying" intention of the directive, later known by the code name of Krivaja 95, is in no doubt. Yet it leaves open the issue of the intention to commit genocide. Legal experts at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia have been scrutinizing the gap between genocide and ethnic cleansing in an attempt to legally establish the existence of genocide in Srebrenica.
