Witness Fails to Appear at Basic Trial Due to Poor Health

Dzenana Sivac BIRN BiH Zenica
The Eniz Basic trial continued at the cantonal court in Zenica with the presentation of material evidence by the prosecution. A witness who had been expected to testify at this hearing failed to appear due to his poor health.
As a result, the trial chamber decided to postpone the examination of witness Mulaim Zatagic to a later date.

The cantonal prosecution in Zenica presented a decision declaring a state of war in the territory of Bosnia and Herzegovina as material evidence. The decision was published in the Official Gazette on June 20, 1992.

The indictment alleges that Basic, a former member of the Army of Bosnia and Herzegovina, abducted two civilians from a house in the village of Vardiste in April 1993 - without being authorized to do so. The civilians’ charred bodies were found a few days later.

The next hearing in this case is scheduled for April 23, when two cantonal prosecution witnesses will be examined.
