Dzana Brkanic BIRN BiH Sarajevo
Savo Todovic, who was sentenced to 12-and-a-half years in prison for crimes in Foca, has been released conditionally after having served nearly ten years – the Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina, BiH, confirmed to BIRN Justice Report.
Todovic, former Deputy Manager of the Foca Penal and Correctional Facility, was sentenced, in 2009, to 12-and-a-half years in prison along with Mitar Rasevic, former Commander of Guards in the Foca Facility, for having abused more than 700 prisoners from April 1992 to October 1994.
In October 2006 the case of Savo Todovic and Mitar Rasevic was referred by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia to the Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina for further processing. Mitar Rasevic, who was sentenced to seven years, was released conditionally in 2010.
Todovic was granted conditional liberty on September 25. The conditional liberty may last until November 2017, when his imprisonment sentence expires.
He has spent a total of nine years-and-nine months in prison.
