BELGRADE, Serbia – Another hearing has been postponed in the Serbian trial dealing with the 1995 massacre of 8,000 Muslims from Srebrenica, further delaying the landmark proceedings that opened over a year ago.
The trial of eight former Bosnian Serb policemen charged with killing hundreds of Bosnian Muslim prisoners is seen as a test of Serbia's resolve to help punish those responsible for Europe's worst crime since World War II.
The proceedings have been constantly delayed and were suspended for several months last year because the indictment was filed while Serbia did not have a chief war crimes prosecutor.
Serbia's war crimes court rescheduled Tuesday's hearing for July after one of the eight suspects in the case failed to show up in the courtroom. The suspects remain free while the trial continues.
