Sense of the Senate on Bosnia

    (a) The Senate finds that:

      (1) Numerous atrocities have been reported on the conflict in the former Yugoslavia;

      (2) Such atrocities against innocent civilians and prisoners would violate universally accepted law as embodied in the Geneva Conventions of August 12, 1949 for the Protection of War Victims; the Hague Convention (IV) Respecting the Laws and Customs of War on Land and the Regulations annexed thereto of October 18, 1907; the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide of December 9, 1948; and the Charter of the International Military Tribunal of August 8, 1945;

      (3) In October 1992 the United Nations Security Council adopted Resolution 780 establishing a Commission of Experts to gather and evaluate evidence of such war crimes;

      (4) The Commission of Experts submitted an interim report dated January 26, 1993 which concluded that grave breaches and other violations of international humanitarian law had been committed in the territory of the former Yugoslavia, including willful killing, ‘ethnic cleansing’, mass killings, torture, rape, pillage, and destruction of civilian property, destruction of cultural and religious property and arbitrary arrests;

      (5) The Commission of Experts has been hindered in carrying out fully its legal charge because of insufficient resources;

      (6) On February 22, 1993, the United Nations Security Council adopted Resolution 808 establishing an international tribunal to try individuals accused of the commission of war crimes in the former Yugoslavia;

      (7) On May 3, 1993, the Secretary General of the United Nations issued his report which established the procedures for an international war crimes tribunal;

      (8) The United Nations is presently in the process of selecting judges and prosecutors for the international war crimes tribunal;

      (9) According to reports, the atrocities in the former Yugoslavia continue unabated; and

      (10) There is a dire need to establish promptly the tribunal and commence prosecution of alleged war criminals: Now, therefore.

    (b) The Senate hereby commends the United Nations for its recognition of the importance and necessity of the rule of law as evidenced by its establishment of an international tribunal for the prosecution of war crimes in the former Yugoslavia.

    (c) It is the sense of the Senate that the United Nations should--

      (1) expedite the selection of judges and prosecutors for the tribunal in order to begin prosecutions of alleged war criminals; and

      (2) provide all assistance necessary to continue gathering evidence for such prosecutions.
