A year after the identity of a protected witness in a Srebrenica genocide trial was publicly revealed by media in Bosnia’s Serb-dominated Republika Srpska, putting his safety at risk, the Bosnian prosecution has not brought any charges.
Former Bosnian Serb soldier Cvijan Tomanic was sentenced to seven years in prison for his involvement in beating and killing one ethnic Albanian civilian and assaulting others in the Zvornik area in 1992.
The Bosnian prosecution called for a 20-year sentence for Sakib Mahmuljin, wartime commander of the Bosnian Army’s Third Corps, for failing to stop Islamic volunteer fighters torturing and killing Serb prisoners.
Former Bosnian Serb Army soldier Ranko Radulovic, a Montenegrin citizen, pleaded not guilty to attacking Bosniaks, committing rape, taking hostages and destroying property in the Foca area of Bosnia during the war in 1992.
The Bosnian state court has outstanding international arrest warrants for 41 people accused of committing wartime crimes including genocide – although some of them are already being tried in Serbia and one has died.
