Prosecution’s Closing Statement in Avdovic and Vintila Trial Expected Mid-November

Dzana Brkanic BIRN BiH Sarajevo

The presentation of evidence at the Ramiz Avdovic and Iulian-Nicolae Vintila trial concluded with a revision of the state prosecution’s indictment. Avdovic and Vintila have been charged with war crimes in the Sarajevo area.

Ramiz Avdovic and Iulian-Nicolae Vintila have been charged with war crimes committed against Serb civilians at the Viktor Bubanj military barracks and on the fifth floor of the district prison in Sarajevo. The prosecution alleges that the civilian prisoners held in those facilities were subjected to torture and abuse, and were also ordered to perform forced labour.

The indictment alleges that Avdovic was the guard commander on the fifth floor of the district prison in Sarajevo and at the former Viktor Bubanj military barracks,
while Vintila was a cook and guard in the barracks.

At today’s hearing, the state prosecution submitted a revised indictment to the Bosnian state court and defense teams in writing. The changes to the indictment weren’t presented in the courtroom.

The defense of Ramiz Avdovic had no objections to the revisions. Iulian-Nicolae Vintila’s defense said it had no objections to the formal legal terms, but wanted to comment on the content of the new indictment in its closing statement.

The state prosecution will present its closing statement on November 16 or 18.
