‘Stress’ Disrupts Bosnian Croats’ Trial For Busovaca Killings

Mirna Buljugic BIRN BiH Sarajevo
The war crimes trial of two former fighters accused of killing Bosniak civilians in Busovaca in central Bosnia in 1993 was postponed because one defendant fell ill due to stress.
The trial was postponed on Thursday after the defence lawyer for indictee Zoran Milic said that his client was not well, explaining that he was crying and responding to questions by saying that he did not know.

“I visited him several times. I am telling you very honestly that I cannot establish communication with him,” defence lawyer Slavko Asceric said.

Milic told the court that he was “under some stress”.

He is charged with having participated, along with Zoran Marinic, in the murder and wounding of four Bosniak civilians in the municipality of Busovaca on April 26, 1993.

The trial is due to continue on May 30, when a neurologist will present her findings about Milic’s health.
