Praljak trial: Bosnian Croat war criminal 'takes poison' in court


A war crimes appeal hearing in The Hague was cut short dramatically when one defendant drank what he said was poison upon hearing the verdict, APA reported citing BBC News.

 

Slobodan Praljak was one of six former Bosnian Croat political and military leaders up before the court.

 

He was sentenced to 20 years' imprisonment in 2013 for crimes in the city of Mostar.

 

On hearing that his sentence had been upheld, he told the judge, "I have taken poison".

 

The six were appearing in court for the final appeals judgment to be handed down by the Yugoslav Tribunal.
