UN court convicts 6 Bosnian Croats of atrocities
The Hague: An United Nations court has convicted six Bosnian Croat political and military leaders of persecuting, expelling and murdering Muslims during Bosnia`s war as part of a plan supported by leaders in neighboring Croatia to establish a Croat state in Bosnia.
The Yugoslav war crimes tribunal convictions today underscored Croatia`s involvement in Bosnia`s 1992-95 conflict.
A majority of the three-judge panel says that late-Croat President Franjo Tudjman was a key member of a plan to carve out a Croat ministate in Bosnia with the aim of later uniting it with his country to create a greater Croatia or leaving it as a separate independent state.
The court handed down sentences ranging from 10 to 25 years` imprisonment for the six suspects.
