The International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) was unable to comment on the reasons for transferring Krstic, but according to diplomatic sources it was due to security issues.
Krstic was subject to constant provocations and he spent his whole time in his cell. In his former prison in Great Britain he was attacked, so he was transferred to another prison but there he was also subject to provocations, BIRNs Justice Report was told by diplomatic sources.
Krstic, former Commander of the Drina Corps of the Bosnian Serb Army (VRS) was sentenced to 35 years imprisonment in April 2004 for aiding and abetting genocide, extermination and persecution on political, racial and religious grounds in Srebrenica in July 1995.
He was transferred in December 2004 to the United Kingdom to serve his sentence.
According to unofficial information, Krstic was transferred to the Tribunal on December 15, and he will remain there until a decision is reached as to which country he will be sent to serve the remainder of his sentence.
