Ambassador Wilma van Benthem about 'the prosecutor, the defender, his father and his son'

March 19, 2016

MtM ambassador Wilma van Benthem wrote a blog about The Prosecutor, The Defender, His Father and His Son, which is screened at the festival. This courtroom drama based on a true story. Two ambitious lawyers go head to
head in the trial against Milorad Krstić, who is accused of war crimes, at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia in The Hague. The testimony of witness K109 seems to be decisive for the indictment of Krstić, but turns out to be partially flawed.

Read the intro to Wilma's blog below:
The recognition of the suspect Milorad Krstics by the witness K109 is crucial for the prosecution in the trial of Krstics, alledgedly a former commander of the Gvardia-militia in Bratunac region during the war in Bosnia-Herzegovina. Krstics himself, when asked if he was there, says, yes, of course he was in Bratunac, he was born there, he worked there as a teacher, all his family was from there. It seems that Krstics will escape his sentence, that is until witness K109 (himself in custody) is being brought in as a witness for the prosecution. Read more.
