Both the defender of Radislav Krstić, adv. Mikolaj Pietrzak, and the Polish Prosecutor applied to the District Court in Warsaw to impose a penalty of 25 years of imprisonment. According to the District Court in Warsaw, that is the only possible length of a prison sentence for R. Kristić in Poland. In the grounds for the decision, Judge Tomasz Calkiewicz emphasized that according to the Polish law the only possible sentences for crimes committed by Krstić were 25 years of imprisonment or life imprisonment .
In 1995, Radislav Krstić led the assault on the Muslim enclave in Srebrnica, where soldiers conducted a mass execution of about 8 thousand people. Radislav Krstić was detained in 1998 and in 2001, as the first criminal from the former Yugoslavia, was sentenced to 46 years of imprisonment by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia in the Hague. In 2012, the Tribunal applied to Poland to enable Kristić to serve his prison sentence in Poland.
