Bosnian Muslim commander pleads not guilty at war crimes tribunal

[JURIST] Rasim Delic [Trial Watch profile], the former commander of Bosnia's Muslim army during the 1992-95 Bosnian war, pleaded not guilty Thursday in his first appearance before the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia at The Hague on charges [ICTY summary; full indictment] of violating the laws of war by murder and cruel treatment of ethnic Croat and Serb prisoners. Prosecutors accuse Delic of war crimes that include the murder of 24 Bosnian Croats outside the village of Maline in June 1993, and failing to prevent crimes committed at the Kamenica prison camp.
