The UN tribunal set up to try those responsible for atrocities committed during the Balkan conflicts of the 1990s has transferred a former senior Bosnian Serb army commander to Germany to serve his life sentence for war crimes committed in Sarajevo from 1992 to 1994. Stanislav Galic, who was transferred Jan. 15, was initially sentenced by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) to 20 years in prison in December 2003 for murder, inhumane acts and acts of violence on Sarajevo's civilian population.
