Summary
    On 21 November 2007, the Appellate Panel of the War Crimes Section of the Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina upheld a verdict of the Trial Panel of 17 July 2007, in which a member of the Territorial Defense of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina received a compound sentence of 30 years imprisonment for war crimes committed against civilians, including murder and serious injury to physical integrity. The Appellate Panel rejected the objections of the defence according to which the first instance verdict had incorrectly or incompletely established the facts. It also held that the admission of certain facts from the description of the criminal offence by the accused did not carry the same weight as a full admission and could thus not be considered for the purpose of mitigation of punishment.
