PALE, June 9 /SRNA/ - The book titled "The Sarajevo Dossier" by author Milivoje Ivanisevic, which contains 7,428 names of Serb war victims in Sarajevo, the names of their executers, as well as testimonies of 80 persons on how they were tortured, raped and inquired, has been presented at the Faculty of Philosophy in Pale.

Ivanisevic, who is also the head of the Institute for Research on Suffering of the Serbs in the 20th Century, told reporters last night that it took him long time to work on the book and collect the documents on the suffering of Serbs as the material is based on authentic documents that deserve special attention.

"As many as 85 percent of Serbs were killed in their villages. By analyzing, I found out that Muslim soldiers were mostly killed during the attacks on Serb villages, where the Serbs had to defend themselves," Ivanisevic has said.

Dvorak starts shooting Documentary about Suffering of Serbs in Srebrenica
Friday, 15 June 2018
Vaclav Dvorak
For the sake of the historical truth, it is necessary to deny a series of lies about an alleged genocide against Srebrenica Bosniaks and tell the story about the Serb victims in Srebrenica which the wider public knows nothing about, says Dvorak

SREBRENICA, June 14 /SRNA/ - Czech film director Vaclav Dvorak has started shooting material for a documentary about the Serb suffering in Srebrenica in the 1990s homeland war.

Dvorak told Srna that eight years ago he started shooting dialogues and takes and collecting material for the documentary about Srebrenica Serbs and that those activities were disrupted due to the lack of financial resources.

Witness: I swallowed All Teeth that were knocked out
Thursday, 07 June 2018
SARAJEVO, June 6 /SRNA/ - At the trial of ten indictees charged with crimes against Serb civilians in Orasje in 1992 and 1993, Djuro Stoimirov, a witness, has said that Pera Vincetic was taking him outside and beating him so hard that he swallowed all the teeth that had been knocked out.

He has stated that Vincetic and two other military police officers arrested him in April 1992 on his way back from work.

"They tossed me in a red van and drove me to the school in Donja Mahala, because I was supposedly giving signals from the silo for what was supposed to be torn down." Pera inquired me, telling me he had a witness for that and he was beating me all the time - with a fishing rod, kicking and punching me," said Stoimirov.

He has said that, after some time, he was transported to the high school gym in Orasje, where, as he said, he found Serb civilians from Bukova Greda and Orasje.

Jasenovac – Largest Concentration Camp in South East Europe
Saturday, 12 May 2018
BANJALUKA, May 11 /SRNA/ - Minister of Education and Culture of Republika Srpska, Dane Malesevic, said today in St Petersburg that there is no doubt that Jasenovac was the largest concentration camp not only in former Yugoslavia, but also in South East Europe, where more than 700,000 innocent children, women, elderly and helpless people, anti-fascists, most of whom were Serbs - 500,000, followed by Jews and Roma people - were tortured and killed in the most brutal manner.

 "The Jasenovac concentration camp is different from other Nazi camps throughout Europe, not only by the monstrous torture the inmates underwent, but by the fact that it existed until 1945, without any presence of German soldiers, as well as by a special prison camp for children, where more than 20,000 children, mostly Serbs, were mercilessly liquidated," Malesevic has said.

He has recalled that Jasenovac, the largest concentration camp, was established by the Independent State of Croatia modeled after the German concentration camp on August 21, 1941 in the vicinity of little town of the same name, as a complex composed of five smaller camps and a number of execution sites, the largest of which was Gradina.

Academician Krestic: Kitarovic's Initiative – Fanny, but Sad
Wednesday, 25 April 2018
Academician Vasilije Krestic
BELGRADE, April 25 /SRNA/ - Academician Vasilije Krestic told SRNA that Jasenovac was the worst concentration camp in the world, so it is "funny, but sad" that Croatian President Kolinda Grabar Kitarovic wants to establish a commission for, as she stated, establishing the "real truth" about that concentration camp.

"What else should be established? That there was no genocide? Or that there were less dead?" Or that there was less brutality? I do not know what the lady wants," Krestic has said.

He has pointed out that there were extensive and very serious studies about the Jasenovac concentration camp, and reminded that the investigative commission visited the Jasenovac immediately after the war, without a single Serb member, but the commission was made of Croat and Jewish members.

Jailed Serbs' 'Victims' Found Alive, Embarrassing Bosnia

In a major embarrassment for the Bosnian Government, two Muslim brothers whose supposed murders were used as evidence in a highly publicized war crimes trial to condemn two Bosnian Serbs to death have been found living in a Sarajevo suburb.

The finding of the brothers has raised troubling questions about how the guilty verdict was reached. The two Serbs, currently in a Sarajevo prison, were condemned to death by a military court.

Discovery of the Muslim brothers has exposed what defense lawyers say was the undue haste of the trial, which produced no physical evidence, and the heavily charged political atmosphere that colored the judicial ruling.
