Former Yugoslav Army chief Momcilo Perisic stood straight, eyes downcast as he listened to Judge Bakone Moloto sentence him to 27 years in prison. Proclaiming him guilty of a long list of war crimes and crimes against humanity over his role in the 1995 Srebrenica massacre when around 8,000 Bosnian Muslims were killed. Also, over the 44-month Siege of Sarajevo which made daily life almost impossible for civilians.

On 9 March, General Momcilo Perisic pleaded not guilty to the 13 counts against him before the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia. Formerly Chief of Staff of the Yugoslav army, Perisic is the highest-ranking military commander to appear before the court, responsible only to the president of the Yugoslav Federation and the Supreme Defence Council. He is accused of giving logistical support to the armies of Republika Srpska and Serbian Krajina, which contributed to operations in which atrocities were committed.
