Former Bosnian Serb President Radovan Karadzic, one of the chief architects of the slaughter and devastation of Bosnia’s 1992-95 war, has been sentenced to life imprisonment on Wednesday.
It’s a double tragedy for Karadzic, who was earlier sentenced to 40 years in prison.
Karadzic, now 73, was convicted in 2016 for the July 1995 Srebrenica massacre of more than 8,000 Muslim men and boys by Bosnian Serb forces.
He was also found guilty of leading a campaign of ethnic cleansing that drove Croats and Muslims out of Serb-claimed areas of Bosnia.
The former Serbian leader now has his time increased to life, after being accused of genocide and crimes against humanity.
