Four years ago, four members of the then State Security Division were sentenced to execution for liquidation a year ago, totaling 100 years in prison.
The attack was in this way extended to publisher and journalist Slavko Curuvija, 20 years after his murder, and several days after a verdict was passed, sentencing those who carried the crime out to a total of a hundred years in prison, the commission said.
In a press release, the organization said they were sentenced for Serbian newspaper editor Slavko Curuvijas murder in 1999, and urged the authorities "to pursue the investigation in order to identify and punish the person who ordered the murder."
