Empty graves are waiting for three young Bosnian Army soldiers who disappeared during an attack by Bosnian Croat forces in Mostar in May 1993, but despite their families’ efforts, their bodies have not been found and their killers remain unprosecuted.
After having spent ten years in courtrooms, some of the war-crimes indictees are still awaiting second instance verdicts to be pronounced. Although everything is carried out according to the law, legal experts say that the fact that those trials have still not been completed can not be justified.
The fourth retrial of three indictees, who are charged with crimes in Mostar, in the case called Vranica, is due to begin on December 13 as agreed at a status conference held before the Cantonal Court in Mostar.
Families of members of the Army of Bosnia and Herzegovina, ABiH, who were last seen alive in the Vranica building in Mostar are disappointed that no one has been successfully tried for the murder of their loved ones 18 years after they went missing.
