PALE, Bosnia-Herzegovina (AP) — A Bosnian Serb convicted war criminal who spent 13 ½ years in prison for persecuting and forcibly expelling non-Serbs during the 1992-95 Bosnian war is urging people in his country to forget the conflict, stop hating, forgive and move on for the benefit of all.
Wartime Bosnian Serb Parliament speaker Momcilo Krajisnik was last month granted early release from a British prison where he had served two thirds of a 20-year sentence handed down by the U.N. War Crimes Tribunal.
He told The Associated Press in an interview on Tuesday that when he returned, he was surprised by how obsessed people in Bosnia still are with war.
He said he was sad to have found his country in a pitiful state of poverty, fed by ethnic bickering.
