Hasan Nuhanovic’s comment on the ongoing debate in Canada on freedom of speech vs. Srebrenica genocide denial

We have asked the most prominent experts in the field of international law, members of the International Expert Team of the Institute for Research of Genocide Canada to comment on an ongoing debate in Canada. The genocide that occurred in Srebrenica is in fact not freedom of speech and should be legally banned in Canada. The first comment is by Mr. Hasan Nuhanovic, a survivor of the Srebrenica genocide who has a campaign named “For truth and justice” which acts on behalf of other survivors and relatives of the victims.

Srebrenica survivor Hasan Nuhanovic will never forget his last job in Srebrenica. “My last task as a UN interpreter was to translate the command of Dutch officers to members of my family that they must leave the UNPROFOR base in Potocari,” says Hasan, who worked as an interpreter for Dutch peacekeepers in the UN-protected “safe area”. Hasan’s family members were massacred along with more than 8,000 men and boys from Srebrenica in Europe’s worst single atrocity since the Nazi era in the Second World War.
