Bosnian War Crimes Denial Ban Causes Trial Postponement

A hearing in the trial of four former Bosnian Serb police officers accused of persecuting Bosniak civilians in the Vlasenica area during wartime was postponed on Wednesday because defence lawyers said they did not know how far they could go in defending their clients in light of legislative changes banning the denial of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity.

Bosnian Mayor’s Long-Delayed War Crimes Trial to Begin

The mayor of Vlasenica, Miroslav Kraljevic, will go on trial in Sarajevo next month with co-defendants Radenko Stanic and Goran Garic for the persecution of Bosniak civilians during the war in 1992 and 1993, it was announced on Wednesday.

The three men - all former police officers - are charged with unlawful imprisonment, murder, torture, sexual abuse and forced disappearances.
