BELGRADE, October 9 /SRNA/ - Head of the Institute for Research on Suffering of the Serbs in XX century, Milivoje Ivanisevic, says the acquittal of Naser Oric may mean that the prosecution sabotaged sound evidence and that as long as Republika Srpska does not have its legislation, it cannot make sure the perpetrators of crimes against Serbs are punished.

“I always take into account the prosecution. The prosecution of the Hague war crimes tribunal too created such an indictment and offered such evidence submitting ‘I really don’t find the man guilty.’ I think the same thing occurred here again,” Ivanisevic told Srna.

Ivanisevic said the prosecution sabotaged the provision of sound evidence.

“As far as I’ve heard, witnesses were removed even during the first trial. How they were removed, how the witnesses refused to testify and why, that’s a different story. It is a pretty complex situation and several factors are to blame for that,” said Ivanisevic.

An alarming and expanding wave of revisionism in Eastern Europe

The leadership of the small Jewish community in Croatia, along with representatives of the country’s Serb minority, has boycotted the last two government-sponsored Holocaust commemorations in 2016 and 2017. Demonstrating impressive moral courage and integrity, they refuse to condone a historical revisionism with echoes of Holocaust denial that aims to rehabilitate the Ustasha, a Croatian fascist movement led by the nationalist dictator Ante Pavelić that aggressively and ardently murdered hundreds of thousands of Serbs and tens of thousands of Jews during World War II.

The present stand-off between the Croatian Jewish community and the Croatian government (celebrating Croatian independence yesterday) over the manner in which the Holocaust is commemorated—or not commemorated—and the effective rehabilitation and glorification of the Ustasha came to a head after a March 2016 Israel-Croatia soccer match, where Croatian spectators shouted the notorious Ustasha slogan “Za dom spremni,” or “Ready for the Homeland,” in the presence of the Croatian prime minister, who apparently sat by without reacting.

We, three women, “S4”, Slobodanka Jovic and I were taken to a hall in the community of Kesten where there were many of our soldiers /members of the Republika Srpska Army/ who were naked and looked like they were beaten,” she said.

BELGRADE - July 4 /SRNA/ - Milivoje Ivanisevic, the director of the Institute for Research on Suffering of Serbs in the 20th Century, told SRNA that the oldest war victim is an elderly Serb woman, Boja Kenjalo, aged 106, who was killed in the Luke concentration camp in Bihac by Alija Izetbegovic’s Muslim villains.

"Hopefully, Guinness World Records will announce the oldest victims of wars in Europe, perhaps in the world too, during the twentieth century. We, Serbs, believe that it would be deceased woman of our ethnic background, who was killed during the BiH war in the Luke concentration camp in Bihac by Alija Izetbegovic’s Muslim villains," said Ivanisevic.

He has stated that the elderly woman, Boja Kenjalo, from the village of Racici, the municipality of Bihac, was born in 1888 and was killed in the above mentioned concentration camp at the end of October 1994 at the age of 106.
