Emina Dizdarevic BIRN BiH Sarajevo

A protected witness was examined in a closed hearing at the trial of Adil Vojic and Bekir Mesic, charged with wartime rape in the Bihac area. The witness, who was allegedly raped by the defendants, testified again today as per an invitation by the state court.

Trial chamber chair Zoran Bozic said the witness had previously been examined in a closed session, and would testify at today’s hearing under the same measures.

The state prosecution has charged Adil Vojic and Bekir Mesic, former members of the 501st Brigade of the Fifth Corps of the Bosnian Army, with having alternately raped a woman and forced another person to sexually abuse her on the night of May 1 or 2, 1994.

The trial is scheduled to continue on January 6, 2016.
