Friday, 15 December 2017
SARAJEVO, December 14 /SRNA/ - A protected witness of the BiH Prosecutor's Office “S-1” has said he saw Elfeta Veseli slitting Slobodan Stojanovic's throat, but did not see when she fired once or twice from a gun she pressed to boy’s head.

In the continuation of the Elfeta Vesela and Sakib Halilovic trial for the killing of 12-year-old boy Slobodan Stojanovic in 1992 near Zvornik, through the video link from Belgrade the witness described the events that preceded this terrible crime.

At the beginning of today's hearing, the witness said that he and approximately 100-120 members of the Fikret Mustafic Squipetar’s unit started in July 1992 from Cerska to take part in Kamenica operation in order to "liberate the area so the young and weak could get out of Srebrenica."

Noone mentiones Crimes against Serbs
Friday, 01 December 2017
RIBNIK, November 30 /SRNA/ - The ICTY’s judgment against six senior officials of the former Herzeg-Bosnia, which confirmed the involvement of the Croatian state leadership in a joint criminal enterprise in BiH, even more disappointed the mayors of the West Krajina municipalities because horrible crimes committed against the Serbs in this area were not mentioned.

Mayor of Ribnik Municipality, Radenko Banjac, has told SRNA that he is not competent to comment on the ICTY's judgment, but that he regrets that the Serb victims in the defensive-patriotic war were again denied.

"The municipality of Ribnik was also attacked by a regular Croatian army, which in September 1995 carried out an aggression against West-Krajina municipalities. Our municipality suffered great material devastation, and there were also civilian casualties," said Banjac.

Thank You, Ed Herman by Diana Johnstone

Edvard S. Herman
CounterPunch | November 15, 2017

Edward S. Herman died on November 11, 2017, at the age of 92.  Fortunately, it was a peaceful death for a supremely peaceful man.  In all he did, Ed Herman was a tireless champion of peace.

Ed Herman could be considered the godfather of antiwar media critique, both because of his own contributions and because of the many writers he encouraged to pursue that work.  Thanks to his logical mind and sense of justice, he sharply grasped the crucial role and diverse techniques of media propaganda in promoting war.  He immediately saw through lies, including those so insidious that few dare challenge them, such as the arrogant presumption by the U.S. War Party of the “right to protect” and the “need to prevent genocide”, to justify the oxymoronic “humanitarian war”.

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.

Deats or Disappearances of 29,070 Serbes, 447 of Whom are Children, documented
Monday, 13 November 2017
BANJALUKA, November 13 /SRNA/ – During the work on a project to record Serbian victims of the BiH war in the period 1991-1995, the Republika Srpska Center for the Investigation of War and War Crimes and the Search for Missing Persons documented the deaths or disappearances of 29,070 persons, of whom 2,395 are women and 447 are children, Center director Milorad Kojic said today.

Presenting results of the project, Kojic told a press conference in Banjaluka that data on 659 Serbs who died as the consequence of the wounding or repression and the war was also entered into the Centre’s database.

Kojic has said that additional checks are being conducted and documents are being collected for 629 persons, since the Center has certain information and indications that they also died in the past war, but that at the moment it does not have sufficient information as stipulated by the Rulebook on Keeping a Record of War Victims in order to be able to include them into the category of victims of war.

Ivanisevic: Prosecution sabotaged Sound Evidence

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.
