Edina Residovic, lawyer of Dzeko, presented police documents from Travnik, documents of international military forces, and a “series of articles” from the trial of Hanefija Prijic.
According to Residovic, the documents show Handanovic’s “participation in crimes in other areas”, and that she gave false data to foreign countries.
At the end of 2011, former member of the Zulfikar unit of the Bosnian Army Handanovic was extradited from the United States to Bosnia and Herzegovina, and after several months she signed a plea agreement with the Bosnian Prosecution.

The Bosnian State Court convicted Handanovic to five-and-a-half years for taking part in the shooting of six Croats in Trusina on April 16, 1993 near Konjic.
She testified in September last year as a Prosecution witness that Dzeko killed an elderly couple in Trusina, after which the Defence said that she was guilty of this murder. Handanovic said that besides her, among the soldiers who took part in the killings was Dzeko.
Dzeko is charged with killing two old women and one man in the attack on Trusina and later took part in the killings of six men. He is also charged with crimes in Jablanica.
The trial continues on November 19.
