Appeals judges at the Yugoslav war crimes tribunal Tuesday upheld the acquittal of a former Bosnian Muslim army commander over atrocities in the 1992-1995 Bosnian war. Sefer Halilovic, former Deputy Commander and Chief of Main Staff of the Muslim-dominated Bosnian Army, was cleared in November 2005 of a single war crimes charge linked to the murder of Bosnian Croat civilians in two villages in 1993. A five-judge appeals panel at the UN court said prosecutors failed to raise any arguments to overturn the original verdict.
