Grujic: First Defence Witnesses on October 3

The Defence of Slobodan Grujic, who is charged with crimes in Zvornik in 1992, announces that it will examine six witnesses and introduce a few pieces of material evidence during the presentation of evidence.

At a status conference held prior to the beginning of the Defence evidence presentation, Dragan Gotovac, Defence attorney of Grujic, proposed that witnesses, who were not in Bosnia and Herzegovina at present, be examined towards the end of the Defence evidence presentation process.

“We propose that the witnesses, who are currently abroad, be examined last due to better efficiency of the proceedings. They should be in Bosnia and Herzegovina in mid-November. I propose that we examine the other witnesses and, perhaps, a court expert and present material evidence by then,” Gotovac said.

The Prosecution of Bosnia and Herzegovina charges Grujic, former member of the Republika Srpska Army, VRS, with having participated, along with a few other individuals, in the capture and murder of ten Bosniak civilians in Zvornik municipality on May 10, 1992.

The indictment alleges that the remains of those civilians were exhumed from the Pandurica grave in 1997.

The Prosecution of Bosnia and Herzegovina did not object to the Defence’s evidence presentation proposal.

“I think that the list of witnesses proposed by my colleague is moderate,” said Prosecutor Adnan Gulamovic.

The trial of Grujic began on April 4 this year. First two Defence witnesses are due to testify on October 3.
