Bosnian Serb Ex-Soldier’s Crimes Against Humanity Appeal Rejected

31. July 2019.13:37
Bosnia’s Constitutional Court rejected an appeal from former Bosnian Serb Army serviceman Dragan Marinkovic, who was sentenced to eight years in prison for his involvement in the killings of two Bosniak civilians in 1992. The Bosnian Constitutional Court has dismissed as unfounded Dragan Marinkovic’s appeal against his conviction for committing crimes against humanity in the village of Zutica in the Milici municipality of eastern Bosnia in 1992.

“The Constitutional Court finds that there is no violation of the right to a fair trial,” said the decision, which was handed down on July 17.

It said that the courts that tried Milinkovic’s case had given “detailed, clear and substantiated explanations regarding the evidence presented”.

In March 2017, the appeals chamber of the Bosnian state court upheld the first-instance verdict that convicted Marinkovic of crimes against humanity for his role in the killings of the two civilians in Zutica on May 11, 1992.

He was found guilty of killing Rasid Jasarevic and Mehmedalija Ahmetovic in collaboration with another, unknown soldier.
