Prosecutors have appealed against the acquittal of former Bosnian Serb soldier Milenko Gojgolovic, who was cleared of raping a prisoner at the Susica detention camp in Vlasenica during the war in 1992.
Ex-prisoners at the notorious Dretelj detention camp near Capljina in southern Bosnia and Herzegovina aren’t able to commemorate the anniversary of its closure because the former Yugoslav military site was privatised and then closed.
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 district court of Eastern Sarajevo passed down a first instance verdict, acquitting Milenko Gojgolovic of charges that he raped and treated a Susica detention camp detainee in Vlasenica in an inhumane manner in the summer of 1992, it was confirmed to the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network Bosnia and Herzegovina, BIRN BiH.
Bosnian prosecutors charged three ex-policemen with murders, sexual abuse and rapes in the Brcko area in 1992, including Ranko Cesic, who has already been convicted of other wartime crimes by the Hague Tribunal.
