The men had sought refuge in the compound of the Dutch mission, which was under the command of the United Nations Protection Force and was participating in peacekeeping operations in Bosnia after the collapse of Yugoslavia.
The Dutch mission sent the Muslim men away from the compound on July 13, 1995, said the court, which is based in The Hague.
After leaving the compound, the men were killed by the Bosnian Serb army and allied paramilitary groups, according to the court.
