Dražen Erdemović, a lance corporal in the Bosnian Serb Army, admitted to killing ‘from 10 to 100’ Bosnian Muslim men by firing squad in July 1995, in and around the area of Srebrenica, during which process approximately 1,200 unarmed civilians were killed. He expressed a willingness to surrender to the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) and was duly transferred to The Hague from the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (FRY).
