Croatia on Monday accused its Balkan neighbor Serbia of genocide in the early 1990s as the former Yugoslavia shattered in spasms of ethnic violence, in a case at the United Nations' highest court that highlights lingering animosities in the region.

Croatia is asking the International Court of Justice to declare that Serbia breached the 1948 Genocide Convention when forces from the former Federal Republic of Yugoslavia attempted to drive Croats out of large swaths of the country after Zagreb declared independence in 1991. It also wants the court to order Serbia to pay compensation.

Serbia previously has faced allegations of genocide at the world court.

In a landmark 2007 judgment, the court cleared Belgrade of committing genocide in the 1995 massacre of some 8,000 Muslim men in the Bosnian enclave of Srebrenica, but said Serbia breached the genocide convention by failing to prevent the slaughter, Europe's worst mass slaying since World War II.

Croatia opened its case by showing judges a video of the devastated remnants of the Croat city of Vukovar, which was besieged and pounded with heavy artillery by Serb forces in 1991, killing hundreds.

It remains to be seen if Zagreb can convince judges that the crimes amount to genocide. The U.N.'s Yugoslav war crimes tribunal, a separate court based in The Hague, convicted Serbs of crimes in Vukovar, but has never characterized atrocities on Croat territory as genocide.

"We will show you that the crimes that took place in the campaign against Croats amount to genocide," Croatia's agent to the court, Vesna Crnic-Grotic, told the judges.

Serbian representative Sasa Obradovic acknowledged that "horrific crimes were committed in Croatia," but told reporters that they do not constitute genocide.

In Belgrade, Serbia's Prime Minister Ivica Dacic expressed hope that the case would ease past tensions, but also warned it could revive nationalist sentiments.

Croatia committed genocide upon Serbs in Croatia and in Bosnia and Herzegovina in 1990s

Serbia should also suit Croatia for the genocide upon the local Serbs in the Croatia's Quisling Naz! Fascist Axis Puppet Independent State of Croatia during World War 2 when they had plan to

1/3 of the Serbs were to be forcibly converted to the Catholicism

1/3 of the Serbs were to be expelled (ethnically cleansed)

1/3 of the Serbs were to be killed

Arkan i Šešelj vršili genocid, Beograd cutao

U nastavku glavne rasprave o medjusobnim tužbama Hrvatske i Srbije za genocid tokom rata 1991-95, Hrvatska se jutros, pred Medjunarodnim sudom pravde u Hagu, pozvala na dokument JNA kao na dokaz da su srpske paravojske pociline genocid na hrvatskoj teritoriji.

If that was the case then why was first Croatian orthodox church formed in NDH?- the whole 1/3 this and 1/3 that is utter bullsh1t yugo/serbo propaganda, just like 99.9% of everything else you moronic retards (serbs and yugs alike)'know' about NDH.

How could Croatia commit genocide against serbs when they all fled like cowardly dogs as soon as there was a level playing field?
you animals showed the whole world what serbian m.o. is...... mass killings, rapes, destruction and other horrific crimes, you should be fking ashamed of what your brethren did
