Babic and Mrdja, both former members of intervention squads at the police Public Security Station in Prijedor, were sentenced by the appeals court in their latest verdict to 13 and 15 years respectively for the killings and inhumane treatment of Bosniak civilians in the Prijedor area.
Babic was previously sentenced to 22 years in prison by the Bosnian court for the murders of Bosniaks from Prijedor at the Koricani Cliffs on Mount Vlasic in 1992.
Mrdja was previously sentenced to 17 years in prison by the Hague Tribunal after pleading guilty to involvement in the Koricani Cliffs killings.
The appeals court ruled that the sentences should be amalgamated.
Its verdict cannot be appealed.
