Analysis: Serbia in the dock By Gabriel Partos

BBC South-East Europe analyst

Monday, 27 February 2006 - The International Court of Justice (ICJ) has begun two months of hearings in The Hague on a landmark case for genocide brought by Bosnia-Hercegovina against Serbia and Montenegro.

Bosnia was still raging with no end in sight. Sarajevo's intention in going to the United Nations court, which deals with disputes between states, was two-fold.

First, it is expected to argue that whatever the nature of the terrible crimes committed in Bosnia, they did not amount to genocide in the internationally-accepted definition of the term under the 1948 Geneva Convention.

The Convention defines genocide as "the intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group".
