::*'''Tadic, (Appeals Chamber), July 15, 1999, para. 156, 162:''' “It is sufficient to show that [the Yugoslav Army] exercised overall control over the Bosnian Serb Forces. Such control manifested itself not only in financial, logistical and other assistance and support, but also, and more importantly, in terms of participation in the general direction, coordination and supervision of the activities and operations of the VRS [the Army of the Serbian Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina/Republika Srpska]. '''This sort of control is sufficient for the purposes of the legal criteria required by international law'''.” “[F]or the period material to this case (1992), the armed forces of the Republika Srpska were to be regarded as acting under the overall control of and on behalf of the FRY [the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (Serbia and Montenegro)]. '''Hence, even after 19 May 1992 the armed conflict in Bosnia and Herzegovina between the Bosnian Serbs and the central authorities of Bosnia and Herzegovina must be classified as an international armed conflict.”''' See also Tadic, (Appeals Chamber), July 15, 1999, para. 87.
::*'''Mucic et al., (Appeals Chamber), February 20, 2001, para. 33, 48, 50:''' “The Trial Chamber came to the conclusion, as in the Tadic case, '''that the armed conflict taking place in Bosnia and Herzegovina after 19 May 1992 could be regarded as international because the FRY remained the controlling force behind the Bosnian Serbs armed forces after 19 May 1992.'''”
