Serb forces had laid siege to the Muslim enclave since the month of May, 1995 and no fresh food had been brought to the tens of thousands civilian refugees since that month. At the beginning, under UN supervision, Bosnian Muslim fighters surrendered their weapons to the peacekeepers. Doing so for peacekeeping reasons, the UN mistakenly gave a helping hand to the Serbs with the invasion of the enclave. Later on, the Dutch commander did not obtain air support nor reinforcements to resist the Serbs and it was in no way possible for the Dutch forces to resist. After the invasion Mladic ordered some 23,000 women and children to be deported but retained the men in warehouses. Some 15,000 Bosnian Muslim men attempted to flee the enclave and were shelled in the mountains
Radovan Karadzic, ex Bosnian Serb leader is in The Hague in custody, waiting for his trial, he is indicted on charges of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity. But General Radko Mladic, the butcher of Srebenica, is still at large somewhere in Serbia. Fourteen years after the massacre, justice is not done.
