World Court Will Not Revise the 2007 Genocide Ruling

The International Court of Justice in The Hague rejected the request for revision of the 2007 ruling in Bosnia vs. Serbia genocide case, Klix.ba reported. The website said that the Presidency members were informed about the Court’s decision in a letter. The Presidency was asked earlier to elaborate the mandate of Bosnia’s agent at the ICJ. The three members of the collective head of state sent individual letters to the Court following an unsuccessful attempt to agree on the divisive revision request.

According to Klix, the Court concluded from the contents of the letters that no national body decided to request revision in the name of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Therefore, no action will be taken regarding the request.

The 2007 judgement by the International Court of Justice exonerated Serbia of direct responsibility for the 1995 genocide in Srebrenica, though it said Serbia had failed to prevent genocide.
