Former Bosnian Serb Army military policeman Goran Viskovic, who is already serving a prison sentence for crimes against humanity, was charged with participating in the killings of eight Bosniak civilian prisoners.
The Bosnian authorities asked the Serbian judiciary to take over the case of Visnja Acimovic, who is accused of involvement in the shooting of 37 Bosniak prisoners in the Vlasenica municipality in 1992.
Several Bosniaks were saved by courageous interventions from individual Serbs who defied potential risks to help neighbours during wartime in the town of Vlasenica in 1992, when many were detained and killed by Bosnian Serb forces.
Investigators have found two skulls during an exhumation in Bosnia’s Prijedor area of a suspected wartime grave that is believed to contain the remains of Bosniaks killed in the village of Rizvanovici.
After repeated delays caused by another defendant’s health problems, the trial of Miroslav Kraljevic, the Serb mayor of the Bosnian town of Vlasenica, who is accused of wartime crimes against Bosniak civilians, will start next month.
