Krestic: Fully unmask Croatia's Genocidal Politics
Wednesday, 27 April 2016
BELGRADE, April 26 /SRNA/ - Academician Vasilije Krestic said today that Jasenovac was a horrific death camp and that great manipulations of Croatia’s genocidal politics should be fully unmasked.

“Jasenovac is a horrific death camp and there can be no manipulations regarding this,” Krestic told reporters on the eve of a meeting dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the founding of the Jasenovac concentration camp in Croatia, which was held at the Serbian Academy of Science and Arts in Belgrade.

He added that these cruel facts are coming from Croatian sources, showing that the idea of a genocidal solution to the Serbian question in Croatia has lasted for several decades.

Kojic: Mortal Remainds in Srebrenca and Tomasica need to be Re-examined
Saturday, 23 April 2016
BANJALUKA, April 23 /SRNA/ - The director of the Republika Srpska Centre for the Investigation of War and War Crimes and the Search for Missing Persons, Milorad Kojic, feels that mortal remains should be re-examined in order to determine the exact number of Bosniaks killed in Srebrenica and Tomasica near Prijedor.

“Only the re-examination of mortal remains can give a true answer to obvious manipulations with the number of killed Bosniaks,” Kojic told SRNA.

When it comes to Srebrenica, Kojic stressed that rulings handed down to Serbs by the ICTY mention different numbers of killed Bosniaks, which raises a doubt about the veracity of the number of killed Bosniaks which is inscribed in the Potocari Memorial Centre.

“The same manipulation is obvious when it comes to the grave in Tomasica near Prijedor,” Kojic said.

Canonization of Sepinac leads to Relativization of History
Friday, 15 April 2016
BELGRADE, April 13 /SRNA/ - Canonization of Aloysius Stepinac is a popular topic in the region by which the Roman Catholic Church both in Croatia and in Bosnia and Herzegovina wants to relativize the role of Stepinac and the Catholic Church in the Independent State of Croatia (NDH), historian Aleksandar Rakovic told Srna.

“Should they succeed in giving Stepinac the status of a saint, that would mean that the committed crimes are relativized somehow and that the stigma that was rightly ascribed over the crimes committed against the Serbs, Jews and Roma during the Second World War would be removed,” said Rakovic.

That would also relativize the crimes and wrongdoings of other priests from the Roman Catholic Church in the then NDH, he said.

“If the Croats and those advocating the idea of canonizing Stepinac succeed, we may expect to see some new steps in the future that would further relativize what happened in the NDH,” said the historian of the Institute for Recent History of Serbia.

Mahmuljin Trial – Farce and Mockery of Victims and The Hague Tribunal
Saturday, 09 April 2016
 Vozuca: Sakib Mahmuljin and Alija Izetbegovic with El-Mujahid Squad
The least the Prosecutor’s Office has to do is to apply the evidence collected in the Delic and Hadzihasanovic-Kubura cases and stop minimising and covering up the crimes and writing a false history of the 1990s war with politically motivated cases and indictments, which cannot bring anything good to anyone

By Tatjana Paradjina / SRNA

SARAJEVO, April 7 /SRNA/ - The way the Prosecutor’s Office, especially prosecutor Sedin Idrizovic, conducts the proceedings against Gen Sakib Mahmuljin, commander of the 3rd Corps of the so-called Army of Bosnia and Herzegovina, is shameful and just a judicial farce and catering to the proven criminals of the El-Mujahid Squad and its orchestrators, says counterterrorism expert Dzevad Galijasevic.

“What is the purpose of the politically motivated qualification of the armed conflict in BiH as an ‘international armed conflict” at the time when the Hague Tribunal definitely and clearly defined the war in BiH as the ‘internal armed conflict’ meaning a civil war in several final verdicts /first in the case of Dusko Tadic and then in the case of Dragoljub Kunarac, and finally Enver Hadzihasanovic and Amir Kubura?

Edin Sakoc, a former member of the Croatian Defense Council (HVO), has been extradited from the United States due to suspicions that he committed war crimes in Pocitelj and Capljina.

The state prosecution suspects that Sakoc, a former member of the Croatian Defense Council’s military police, committed war crimes against Serb victims in the Pocitelj and Capljina area in 1992.

“Concretely, he is suspected of the rape and sexual abuse of one Serb woman in the Pocitelj area using force and participating in the murder of two Serb victims in Capljina with individuals known to him,” the Bosnian state prosecution’s announcement reads.
