At todays hearing of the Eso Macic retrial at the Bosnian state court, Macics defense attorney said his sentence should be reduced. The prosecution, on the other hand, proposed that Macic be sentenced as per the law.
Testifying in defence of Senad Hakalovic at the trial for murders in Trusina village, a protected witness says that people in his village knew that he testified before the Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina, BiH, in 2013, although he testified under protection measures, including identity and face protection.
The examination of Iulian-Nicolae Vintilas Defence witness has been postponed for the second time, because the witness legal counselor complained about not having received all pieces of evidence from the State Prosecution.
Presenting its appeal against a verdict under which Eso Macic was sentenced to 15 years in prison for crimes committed in the Konjic area, the Defence requests the Court to acquit the indictee, while the Prosecution of Bosnia and Herzegovina objects, requesting the Court to confirm the verdict.
As said at a status conference, indictees Mensur Memic and Dzevad Salcin are due to testify in their defence at the trial for crimes in Trusina, near Konjic, while Nihad Bojadzic may appear as a witness as well.
After two and a half years, the Prosecutor's Office of Bosnia and Herzegovina has completed the evidentiary hearing in the trial of six former members of the Army of Bosnia and Herzegovina, ABiH, who are charged with war crimes committed in Trusina near Konjic.
