Monograph "Our Confession" promoted in New York
Wednesday, 11 May 2016
NEW YORK, May 9 /SRNA/ - Monograph "Our Confession", which contains the testimonies of 15 Serb women from Republika Srpska on tortures they underwent during the war in BiH, was promoted in New York.

The monograph was promoted yesterday within the conference "Defeat of Fascism and Remembrance of Victims," that was organised by the Jasenovac Research Institute on the occasion of 71st anniversary of the breakthrough of Jasenovac inmates.

Leader of the Association of Women Victims of War of Republika Srpska, Bozica Rajilic Zivkovic, has said that the members of this association that currently registers 420 women, had found the strength to speak up about their destinies and thus testify that there were victims on all sides in the BiH war.

"Women from Republika Srpska have never been seen as victims, but only as mothers, sisters and wives of war criminals, which does not correspond to the truth. Our distressing testimonies confirm it. We believe that `Our Confession`, will correct this injustice at least partly and that the truth will find its way to the world public, that has not been favorable to us," said Rajilic.

Croatian Defence Council Fighter ‘Beat Up Prisoners’
Friday, 20 May 2016
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?
