The Court of Appeal in Haag increased changed the verdict of the first President of the Serbian Republic Radovan Karadzic, as Reuters reports.
According to the report, the court increased the term of punishment of the ex-leader of Serbia to life Imprisonment.
Earlier, Karadzic has been sentenced for 40 years imprisonment for crimes against humanity, the genocide of Bosnian Muslims and military crimes committed during the Bosnian War of 1992-1995 in March 2016.
In particular, he was found guilty in genocide in Srebrenytsia, the small Bosnian town, where several thousands of Bosnian Muslims were killed.
Besides, Karadzic was found guilty for murdering, hostage-taking and forced displacement of the inhabitants of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
It should be noted that the appellate judges supported the decision of the court of the first instance and found the ex-president of the Republic of Serbian guilty, but they also outlined that the 40-year term for genocide was too mild punishment, taking into account the severity of his crimes.
