On Monday, May 27, 2013, His Majesty King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands arrived in Den Haag to participate in the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY).
The ICTY is a:
“…United Nations court of law dealing with war crimes that took place during the conflicts in the Balkans in the 1990’s. Since its establishment in 1993 it has irreversibly changed the landscape of international humanitarian law and provided victims an opportunity to voice the horrors they witnessed and experienced.”
