Breaking! Latestnews
A courtroom in the Netherlands was left stunned today after Slobodan Praljak, a former commander of Bosnian Croat forces, took his own life by drinking what he said was a bottle of “poison.”
Right after Praljak’s 20-year sentence was upheld, in The Hague at the U.N.’s International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, he yelled, “I am not a war criminal,” and proceeded to drink from a small bottle. The episode was captured on the courtroom’s video feed.
