UN rights chief hails 'hugely significant' Karadzic genocide verdict




(MENAFN - The Peninsula)

Geneva: The UN rights chief on Thursday hailed the genocide conviction of former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic as "hugely significant" saying it showed "no-one is above the law."

"His judgement is symbolically powerful -- above all for the victims of the crimes committed during the wars in Bosnia-Herzegovina and across the former Yugoslavia but also for victims across the world" Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein said in a statement.

He added that the verdict showed that "no matter how powerful they are no matter how untouchable they imagine themselves to be no matter what continent they inhabit the perpetrators of such crimes ... will not escape justice."
