Candidate for the UN General Secretary: Genocide must not remain unpunished

Candidate for the UN General Secretary and former President of Slovenia Danilo Tirk stated that, through the verdict for Karadzic, the international community sent a clear message that crimes such as genocide must not remain unpunished.

- The verdict for Karadzic is of historical importance. At last, the verdict has unambiguously shown the depth of hardest crimes committed on the territory of Bosnia and Herzegovina during the conflict. Anything other than punishment is not acceptable. The verdict for Karadzic proved that justice can be achieved in legal and judicial sense. The verdict is important for BiH and for the entire region, for families of the victims in particular, and for the world. I would like this to be a catharsis for all of those who saw all that was happening in BiH 20 years ago, said Tirk.

Tirk reminded that Srebrenica genocide is recognized in the world as one of the biggest crimes that happened after the World War II, so it is no wonder that the verdict for Karadzic was today one of the main topics even in Washington.
