End of the appeal case
In the first trial against him in 2017, Mladić was sentenced to life in prison for war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide. He appealed the verdict.
The appeal case started at the end of August 2020. It was expected that the judges in the appeal case would also sentence him to life in prison.
The verdict was handed down by the panel of five judges on Tuesday. Zambian judge Prisca Matimba Nyambe chaired the panel.
