Amer Jahic BIRN BiH Sarajevo
The state prosecution presented photos from a crime scene in the village of Karacici, where 20 Bosniak civilians were allegedly killed in 1992. Eight former members of the Bosnian Serb Army have been charged with the killings.
Radomir Markovic, Mile Kusic, Dragan Bozovic, Sasa Perkovic, Radomir Gluhovic, Pero Radovic, Ilija Vukasinovic and Milos Vukasinovic have been charged with the murder of approximately 20 Bosniak civilians in the Rogatica area. The indictment alleges that at the time Markovic was the commander of the Socicka Company of the Rogaticka Brigade of Bosnian Serb Army, while the other defendants were members of that unit.

According to the indictment, the defendants allegedly found the civilians hiding in a garage in Karacici and beat them with rifle butts. Then, they allegedly pushed them into a nearby building and killed them.

At today’s hearing, state prosecutor Seid Marusic presented the trial chamber with sketches and photographs of the crime scene. He also presented documentation which indicated that the bodies of the victims were found after the war.

He then presented military registry entries to demonstrate that the defendants were members of the Bosnian Serb Army.

The trial will continue on August 25, when a Bosnian state prosecution witness will be examined.
