Dutch state partially liable for Srebrenica deaths: defense ministry

AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - The Dutch government on Friday said it accepted the Dutch state was partially liable for the deaths in 1995 of 350 Muslim males who were expelled from a U.N. base and killed by attacking Bosnian Serb forces.

“The government accepts the verdict of the Supreme Court”, the Defense ministry said in a statement. “The state thereby accepts liability for the damages as determined by the Supreme Court.”
