A petition to:

We the undersigned, call on all those involved in the prosecution and judgement of Drazen Erdemovic, to do their utmost to rectify the travesty of justice that has allowed him to walk free in three years time.

We further call on the International Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia to ensure that justice is served at all times, in accordance with universally accepted forms of justice. For every criminal guilty of crimes against humanity, there should be life imprisonment. In other words, throw away the key.

The current actions of ICTY in the Erdemovic case, shows a complete disregard for internationally accepted standards of justice. By such actions ICTY exposes itself as yet another impartial extension of a system. By allowing the very few of the many who are guilty of heinous acts to almost walk free, ICTY is creating an atmosphere that promotes genocide.
