Ex-Bosnian Serb Commander Admits Srebrenica Role

A Bosnian Serb former army commander has confessed to his role in the 1995 Srebrenica massacre of thousands of Muslim men and boys in a plea agreement with Hague tribunal prosecutors, the court said on Tuesday. Momir Nikolic, one of four Bosnian Serb ex-army commanders due to go on trial this month charged with war crimes at Srebrenica in the 1992-95 Bosnian war, admitted his role in Europe’s worst massacre since World War II in the plea deal. Nikolic agreed to plead guilty to one charge of persecution — a crime against humanity — in return for four other charges being dropped by prosecutors. He also agreed to testify against co-accused Vidoje Blagojevic, Dragan Obrenovic and Dragan Jokic.
