EX-BOSNIAN SERB PRESIDENT PLAVSIC IS PICTURED AT SENTENCING HEARING AT
U.N. TRIBUNAL IN THE HAGUE.
Ex-Bosnian Serb President Biljana Plavsic (R) is pictured at the
beginning of her sentencing hearing at the U.N. International Criminal
Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, in The Hague, December 16, 2002.
The former biology professor had initially pleaded innocent to multiple
counts of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes after
surrendering to the U.N. court in January 2001. Plavsic, 72, changed
her plea in October to guilty on one charge of persecution in what
lawyers said was a move "expressing her remorse fully and
unconditionally". REUTERS/Fred Ernst/Pool
