He was arrested in a daring joint SAS and U.S. Navy SEAL snatch in Bosnia in December 1998.
In 2001 he became the first man to be convicted of genocide by the War Crimes Tribunal in the Hague and was sentenced to 46 years in prison.
This was overturned on appeal and replaced by a 35-year sentence for aiding and abetting genocide.Under the 1948 Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, Britain is obliged to take a share of prisoners convicted at the tribunal.
Among Bosnian Muslims, Krstic, who is married with a daughter, remains a figure of hatred, with the families of many of his victims swearing revenge.
Retribution appears to have come when he was attacked in the maximum security area of Wakefield while in his cell - D320.
He was slashed using a homemade weapon - believed to be a razorblade embedded in a toothbrush.
Last night it emerged that one of his suspected assailants was serving life for the torture and murder of a girl in a suburban park in 2005.
He is Indrit Krasniqi, 22, of Chiswick, West London, convicted in 2006 of the gang murder of Mary-Ann Leneghan, 16, in Reading. FULL STORY
Before I voice my opinion on this brutal execution I'd like to say I condemn anyone who murdered innocent people, raped women and looted and razed property during the Balkan wars of the 90s.
Now let me explain what really happened here:
- the British recognized the illegal independence of Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Kosovo thereby adding fuel to the fire of the conflict
- the British then abducted Serbian soldiers accused of 'war crimes' and took them to the kangaroo court known as the 'International War Crimes Tribunal' which in reality is a political tool for NATO
- the British bombed Yugoslavia for "humanitarian" reasons and killed thousands of innocent civilians yet no British politicians or pilots responsible for the massacre were brought to the aforementioned kangaroo court
- the Serbian soldiers are found guilty then caged in British prisons where they are butchered by mujahideen fanatics and Albanian criminals
SERBIA SHOULD NOT HAND OVER ANYONE TO THESE MISCREANTS UNTIL EVERY LAST BRITISH, AMERICAN, CROATIAN, BOSNIAN, AND ALBANIAN WAR CRIMINAL SEES THEIR DAY IN COURT FIRST. THIS IS A DOUBLE STANDARD DEHUMANIZATION AND SLAUGHTER OF SERBS. THE SELF-HATING QUISLING ELEMENTS WITHIN SERBIA LIKE B92 IGNORE STORIES SUCH AS THESE IN FAVOR OF ANTI-SERBIAN PROPAGANDA. BOYCOTT B92 AND DENOUNCE FURTHER EXTRADITIONS OF SERBS TO THE HAGUE!
