Populated places in Bosnia and Herzegovina
Jovan Novakovic told the Belgrade Higher Court on Friday that when he evacuated locals from the Bosniak village of Suha near Bratunac in spring 1992, he did not know they were about to be deported.
Courts in the towns of Doboj and Sokolac have rejected requests to ban 16 associations whose titles contain the words 'Chetnik Movement' or 'Ravna Gora Movement', while three more courts in Bosnia's Serb-majority Republika Srpska entity are still considering requests to ban the associations, BIRN has learned.
Domestic courts have still not convicted anyone of this or many other shelling incidents in Tuzla during wartime, in which over 100 civilians were killed. Despite the fact that the Bosniak-majority city was declared a protected zone by the United Nations in June 1993, it was subsequently targeted by Bosnian Serb forces.
The Bosnian prosecution said on Monday that the incomplete remains of a war victim have been exhumed by investigators in Trnovo in the Sekovici municipality.
"The exhumation of the terrain at the Trnovo site, in the municipality of Sekovici, has been completed and the incomplete remains of one person have been found," the prosecution said in a statement.
"From that moment on, and for a long time after that, I did not know what was light or what was dark, with whom I was speaking or what I was doing, it was all mechanical," says Fahrudin Kucuk in the documentary film 'Lakonoga' ('Light-Footed'), which is dedicated to his daughter, Aida, the first child to be killed in Sarajevo at the beginning of 1992-95 Bosnian war.
