According to the verdict, Vasiljevic, accompanied by Dragan Garic, the deputy commander of the police in Ribnik, and in collaboration with a few other policemen, transported victim Muso Muhedinovic to the village of Treskavac on August 28, 1992.

Vasiljevic grabbed the man by his shoulder, dragged him towards the edge of the road and fired several bullets into his back from close range, the verdict said.

Muhedinovic’s body was found after the war.

The verdict can be appealed at the Supreme Court of Republika Srpska.
