Three members of the Ravna Gora Movement, a Serb nationalist Chetnik organisation, pleaded not guilty to inciting ethnic and religious hatred at a uniform-clad rally in the eastern Bosnian town of Visegrad in 2019.
The Republic Public Prosecutor’s Office in Bosnia’s Republika Srpska entity has ended an investigation of Zijad Halilovic from the town of Lukavac, who police suspected of “incitement to acts of terrorism” because of statements he posted on Facebook.
This month we will be talking about Chetnik movements and how they hold gatherings at places where crimes were committed during the Bosnian war. You’ll get to know the names of the Chetnik ‘dukes’ who have been accused and convicted of war crimes, and how Chetnik volunteers went to fight in Ukraine.
Court records in Bosnia reveal that prominent members of Serb nationalist Chetnik organisations have been charged with war crimes, while the Bosnian Security Ministry has warned that such groups are extremists who could pose a security risk.
The verdict convicting Enver Buza, the wartime commander of a Bosnian Army battalion, of failing to discipline his troops for the 1993 killing of 27 Croat civilians in the village of Uzdol, was quashed and a retrial ordered.
