Here is a more substansive article on the topic:
The top magistrate said she had received the minutes of a meeting
>from "an indirect source" which proved that foreign officials "knew about
>it, that they had talked about it and that they did nothing to prevent it".
> "They had accepted the separation of men and women ... they knew
>they were going to kill them," she stated.
> "I have the names of the people who attended the meeting," she said.
>"It was an official meeting and therefore there are minutes," she added
>without naming the officials, their positions or their nationalities.
It is the smoking gun, the ultimate proof," she said, adding that
>she intended to reveal everything she knew, but was unable to bring to
>court, after her term as prosecutor ends in September 2007.
1. I wonder what the legal ramifications are of this document at the Hague trials? I don't think it will have any effect on the current Srebrenica trial; but could it possibly effect a Mladic or Karadzic trial?
2. What are the legal ramifications of this document on the possibility of potential lawsuits stemming from Srebrenica? Granted, I don't have a legal background; but if it can be proven that the international community knew there was going to be a mass slaughter, but decided to do nothing; that could usher in lawsuits.
Anyway you look at it, it is a moment of shame for the leaders involved.
