The UN war crimes tribunal in The Hague has acquitted former Serbian intelligence chief Jovica Stanisic and his deputy Franko Simatovic, both of whom had been charged with committing war crimes in Bosnia and Croatia during the 1990s. Judge Alphons Orie on May 30 said the court found the prosecution failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the two men, both former allies of the late Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic, had “planned or ordered” the crimes charged in their indictments. Nedim Dervisbegovic, a correspondent for RFE/RL's Balkan Service, talks about public reaction to the news in Bosnia and Croatia.
