High Representative Valentin Inzko expressed his full support for the work of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in a meeting with the Chief Prosecutor, Serge Brammertz, in Sarajevo today.
“The processing of war crimes is crucial for reconciliation and stability and the citizens of BiH have the right to see justice done. The jurisprudence established by the ICTY and the legacy of the ICTY are an important contributing factor to the strengthening of the capacity of BiH judiciary to deal with war crimes cases independently and effectively,” the High Representative said.
Dukic to meet with Brammertz to discuss crimes against Serbs
The president of the Republika Srpska Alliance of Former Camp Inmates, Branislav Dukic, said that he will meet with ICTY Chief Prosecutor Serge Brammertz on Wednesday in Sarajevo to discuss the prosecution of war crimes against Serbs in Bosnia & Herzegovina.
“We will point out the obstructions of the BiH Court and Prosecutor’s Office in prosecuting war crimes against Serbs in BiH in the Atif Dudakovic, Dobrovoljacka, Tuzla Convoy and Sijekovac cases, as well as the war crimes in Derventa, Brod, Mrkonjic Grad, 12 municipalities in western Krajina and in 126 prisoner camps for Serbs in Sarajevo,“ Dukic said on Tuesday.
According to him, this points to the fact that the BiH Court and Prosecutor’s Office do not treat all victims of the BiH War in the same manner.
Dukic said that former Serbian camp inmates will ask Brammertz to respond to the question of what happened to the documents designated “A,” “B” and “C” which were returned by the ICTY in order to be prosecuted by courts in BiH.
