The former Bosnian Serb commander Ratko Mladić, nicknamed the “butcher of Bosnia”, is facing a final day in court where he will hear judgment on his appeal against his conviction for genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity.
Twenty-six years after the Srebrenica massacre, Mladić, 78, will appear at the United Nations-backed international criminal tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in The Hague on Tuesday for what is expected to be more than an hour of rulings.
