Prisca Matimba Nyambe: who is the dissenting judge in Ratko Mladić case?

Judge Prisca Matimba Nyambe has booked a place in legal history books for presiding over one of the most significant appeal chamber hearings on genocide and crimes against humanity, while disagreeing with almost every one of its rulings.

On Tuesday, she pronounced the words “Judge Nyambe dissenting” repeatedly as she dutifully read out the chamber’s decisions while disowning them. By her dissents she signaled that she believed the original trial, which ended in a life sentence for Ratko Mladić for genocide and crimes against humanity, was fatally flawed and that the Bosnian Serb general deserved a retrial.

Nyambe also indicated she accepted Mladić’s version of the removal of up to 30,000 Bosnian Muslims from Srebrenica, after the enclave’s fall to his forces, was done for “humanitarian reasons”.

In 2012, she caused consternation about legal observers by dissenting from the court’s conviction of one of Mladić’s generals, Zdravko Tolimir, in which she said the massacre of about 8,000 men and teenage boys from Srebrenica was the work of “a small group of individuals operating in an unauthorised and secreted manner”.

1. Sounds like Judge Nyambe has some issues

Possibly anti-Islamic.
