Bosnian Serb’s Zvornik War Crimes Acquittal Upheld

Denis Dzidic BIRN Sarajevo
The appeals court upheld the verdict ruling that former soldier Slobodan Grujic was not guilty of participating in the murder of ten Bosniak civilians in Zvornik in 1992.
The appeals court on Monday confirmed the acquittal of Grujic, a former member of the Baljkovica unit of the Bosnian Serb Army, clearing him of being an accessory to the murders in Pandurica, in the Zvornik municipality, on May 10, 1992.

The first-instance chamber concluded that civilians were murdered but there was not enough evidence to support the allegation that Grujic shot at them.

The state prosecution said that the facts had been “wrongly and incompletely established” and requested a retrial. Grujic pleaded not guilty and the court dismissed the prosecution appeal.
