A statement given by Camila Omanovic to the Hague Tribunal in March 2000 was included in the case file. Omanovic died in 2007. The state prosecution didn’t read her statement aloud in the courtroom.

The state prosecution has filed charges related to the Srebrenica genocide against Dragomir Vasic, Danilo Zoljic, Radomir Pantic, Miodrag Josipovic, and Branimir Tesic.

The defendants allegedly assisted in the forcible resettlement of the local population of Srebrenica, separating men from their families, as well as capturing and executing men and boys in the territory of Bratunac, Srebrenica and Zvornik.

According to the charges, at the time Vasic was the commander of the Zvornik police headquarters, Josipovic was the chief of the public safety station and Tesic was the deputy commander of the police station in Bratunac. Zoljic was the commander of special forces of the public safety center in Zvornik and Pantic was the commander of the First Company of the Special Units of Zvornik’s public safety center.

The trial will continue on October 20.
