judgment on mutual claims of genocide brought by Croatia and Serbia that date back to the disintegration of Yugoslavia in the 1990s.
Croatia alleged that Serbia committed genocide with a campaign of ethnic cleansing during the 1991 to 95 Balkan conflict that broke out after Croatia’s split from Yugoslavia.
However, some 13,500 Croats were killed and tens of thousands more were wounded or displaced.
Serbia countered that Croatia committed genocide against the Serb population, resulting in the death of 6,500 people and the expulsion of over 200,000 from their homes.
Croatia launched the process with its charges in 1999 and Serbia responded in 2010. (dpa/NAN)
