Bosnian war crimes trial closing
Prosecutors began their closing arguments Monday in the five-month trial in Stockholm of a 43-year-old Bosnian Muslim man suspected of committing war crimes during the conflict in the former Yugoslavia in the early 1990s.
Now a Swedish citizen, the father of two children is charged with torturing ethnic Serb prisoners at a concentration camp in 1992. He was arrested last year under an agreement reached between Sweden’s war crimes commission and a UN tribunal in The Hague. Serbs who have testified in the trial are asking for damages of SEK 5 million (USD 788,000).
