Grieving widows and mothers filed an appeal against a verdict by the Dutch Supreme Court in April this year which granted Dutch UN peacekeepers absolute immunity from prosecution.
The families of victims and Srebrenica genocide survivors believe that the Dutch UN peacekeeping forces should have protected civilians in Srebrenica and they feel that the peacekeepers are partly to blame for the deaths of more than 8,000 Muslim men and boys by Serb forces in July 1995 in an area protected by Dutch UN peacekeepers.
Many of these women think that the UN, as the international human rights organization, should not stand above the law and should take responsibility for its role in the Srebrenica genocide in 1995.
They say granting immunity to the UN was disappointing to the genocide survivors and families of the victims.
Bosnian Serb wartime leader Radovan Karadzic and his military chief Ratko Mladic, the two people considered most responsible for the genocide of about 100,000 people during 1992-1995 Bosnian war, are both facing trial for genocide before the war crimes court in The Hague over Srebrenica.
This appeal, as many of these women claim, will not bring back their sons, husbands and brothers, but it will help teach the international community a lesson that everybody needs to answer for his actions.
