Amer Jahic BIRN BiH Sarajevo

Dragan Maksimovic, who lives in Serbia, fails to appear before the Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina, BiH, in order to enter his plea to the charges for crimes in Caparde village, Osmaci municipality.

Defence attorney Radivoje Lazarevic said that Maksimovic told him this morning that he had not received the summons from the Court of BiH.

“He is in Novi Sad. He said that he has not received the summons,” Lazarevic said.

Judge Darko Samardzic said that the summons was sent to the indictee via the international legal aid, but there was no evidence that it had been delivered.
He said that the summons would be resent to him, adding that a new plea hearing was scheduled for March 30 next year.
Maksimovic, a former member of the Republika Srpska Army, VRS, is charged with having killed five Bosniak civilians, including three minor children, in Caparde village in June 1992.
