Bosniak Ex-Soldiers’ Sentences for Attack on Serbs Increased

26. April 2019.11:01
The Bosnian court increased the sentences handed down to former Bosnian Army soldiers Muhamed Sisic, Tarik Sisic and Aziz Susa, who were convicted of involvement in the killings of 21 Serbs in the village of Kukavice in 1992. The third-instance chamber of the Bosnian state court on Friday sentenced Muhamed Sisic to ten years in prison and Tarik Sisic and Aziz Susa to eight years each for wartime crimes in the village of Kukavice in the Rogatica municipality in August 1992.

The attack on Kukavice by Bosnian Army troops saw 21 Serb civilians killed, including two children, and 39 wounded.

Prosecutor Mirza Hukeljic had argued that the second-instance verdict in October 2018, under which Muhamed Sisic was sentenced to eight years and Tarik Sisic and Aziz Susa to five years each, was inadequate considering the seriousness of their crimes.

Muhamed Sisic was indicted as the commander of the Sabotage Detachment of the Army of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s Kukavica Company, and the two others as members of the same unit.

Former soldier Emir Drakovac, who was originally indicted alongside them, has already been convicted and jailed.

Friday’s verdict cannot be appealed.
