Bosnian Genocide

Bosnian Court Has International Warrants for 41 War Crimes Suspects

The Bosnian state court has given BIRN a list of 41 people who are wanted for trial and are the subjects of international arrest warrants, many of whom are living in neighbouring Serbia.

On the list are several suspects accused of involvement in the 1995 genocide of Bosniaks from Srebrenica by Bosnian Serb forces, including former Bosnian Serb Interior Minister Tomislav Kovac.

Bosnian War Crime Case Closed After Suspect Dies in Serbia

The Higher Court in Belgrade told BIRN on Wednesday that it has terminated proceedings against Nenad Bubalo, the former deputy commander of the military police of the Bosnian Serb Army's 15th Bihac Brigade, because he has died.

The Bosnian state prosecution filed an indictment charging Bubalo in September 2017. It was announced at the time that he was a Serbian citizen.
