A former Bosnian Croat general has died after apparently swallowing poison as a judge at the Hague upheld his 20-year sentence for war crimes. Footage from the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) showed 72-year-old Slobodan Praljak tilt his head back and drink from a small glass bottle as the presiding judge read out the verdict. "Slobodan Praljak is not a war criminal. I am rejecting your verdict with contempt," Praljak shouted before swallowing the liquid. The judge was then heard immediately suspending proceedings and asking for the curtains to be drawn. An ambulance was at the building shortly and paramedics raced up to the courtroom, Reuters reported. The courtroom was being treated as a crime scene, an ICTY spokesperson told CNN.

Croatia's Prime Minister, Andrej Plenkovic, later confirmed the former general had died and offered his condolences. "On behalf of the Government of the Republic of Croatia and on my own behalf, I want to express my deepest condolences to the family of General Slobodan Praljak," Plenkovic said, according to a tweet from an official government account. The nature of the substance ingested by Praljak was not immediately clear.

Praljak, a former assistant defense minister of Croatia and commander of the Croatian Defense Council, was appealing a jail term of 20 years in prison. He was one of six former Bosnian Croat leaders found guilty of crimes against humanity and war crimes, including the rape and murder of Bosnian Muslims, in 2013. The offenses, which date to between 1992 and 1994, came as part of a wider conflict that followed the breakup of the former Yugoslavia in the early 1990s. The six were accused of trying to "ethnically cleanse" non-Croats from areas of the territory of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The Bosnian Croat leadership, along with Croat leaders, wanted to make this territory part of a "Greater Croatia," the ICTY said when the case first went through the court. Praljak played an important role in securing weapons and ammunition for the Croatian Defense Council army, according to the original indictment.

Even after reading the news about him just now, i despised him, and he deserved that.
Saying that he rejects that 20-year of sentence was uncalled for, and extremely disrespectful in front of the court presence.

Urrrrghhhh... how i hate them sometimes, but General Praljak will receive no sympathy from me. May he rot in hell for all i care.

Eat shit,Praljak
The fact that he denies it before he offs himself is disgusting.
No sympathy for him nor his child murdering comrades.
