Safet and Muhko Velagic Trial Will be Held in Novi Travnik

Kenan Kavazović BIRN BiH Travnik

The Bosnian state court has decided that the cantonal court of Novi Travnik is responsible for processing the case against Safet and Muhko Velagic. The defendants, both former members of the Bosnian Army, have been charged with war crimes in the Bugojno area.

In October 2014 the cantonal court of Novi Travnik said the Muko and Safet Velagic case didn’t fall under their jurisdiction.

The state court announced that this assessment was incorrect and confirmed that the cantonal court of Novi Travnik was the competent court to take on the case. This decision cannot be appealed.

The trial is expected to begin in January 2016.
