The Beginning of end of Existance of Serbs in The Livno Field was July 30, 1941
Saturday, 30 July 2016
BELGRADE, July 30 /SRNA/ - The president of the Steering Board of the Livno Fiery Mary Association, Gordana Dostanic, told SRNA that the massacre of Serbs in the Livno Field 75 years ago was the beginning of the final phase of efforts by those who wanted Serbs to disappear forever from these parts.

She stressed that the Livno Serbs will come to Livno today from different parts of the world to pay their respects to their loved ones, since there is almost no a family of Livno which does not have scars from July 30, 1941, in its family memories when Croatian Ustashe massacred at least 1,600 Serbs.

“There is almost no family in the Livno Field which did not suffer. Some have been completely destroyed and they have no descendants after 1941,” Dostanic said and cited as an example the village of Polinjevo where all 240 residents were killed and the village of Listani in which all Serbs were killed.

Sakoc was arrested in the United States in 2013 because he gave false information about his role in the Bosnian war to the US authorities.

BIRN BiH Sarajevo | 20 May 2016

Witnesses told the trial of former Croatian Defence Council fighter Almaz Nezirovic, accused of abusing prisoners in Derventa and Bosanski Brod, that the defendant beat them with a rubber baton.

Prosecution witness Vlado Markovic told the state court in Sarajevo on Thursday that he encountered defendant Nezirovic twice during his detention in a hangar next to the cemetery in Rabic in the Derventa municipality in May 1992.

“He was an HVO [Croatian Defence Council] soldier, not a guard. He treated us in an improper and violent manner,” Markovic said.

“We had a desk, a school desk, on which we had to put three fingers. He then hit us with a baton. He hit me ten times. It was a rubber police baton. He hit each and every one of us,” he added.

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?
