Genocide against Serbs was committed in Doboj Camp between 1915 and 1917
Tuesday, 03 January 2017
DOBOJ, December 27 /SRNA/ - The Austro-Hungarian camp in Doboj was the first concentration camp in modern Europe of the 20th century, and has all the characteristics of genocide that was committed against the Serb people, said Deputy Minister of Labour, War Veterans and Disabled Persons’ Protection of Republika Srpska, Radomir Graonic, who today attended the marking of 100 years since the internment of Serbs into the Doboj camp, in which 12,000 persons lost their lives.

"This confirms the systematic ethnic cleansing of the Serb people from Podrinje and Eastern Herzegovina, and the facts that 45.791 persons passed through this camp, 12,000 of whom were killed, including women, children and the elderly," Graonic told the reporters.

He states that the crimes were committed and that Europe showed its ugly face during the WWI, WWII and the NATO bombing of Republika Srpska and Serbia in 1995 and 1999.

Monday, 26 December 2016
SARAJEVO, December 21 /SRNA/ - BiH prosecution witness Nedjo Pecanac has said at the trial of the commander of the 3rd Corps of the so-called Army of BiH, Sakib Mahmuljan, that after he was taken captive, he and his comrades, members of the Republika Srpska Army, suffered horrific tortures at the hands of Mujahideen in their camp in 1995.

At the trial of Mahmuljan for crimes against imprisoned Serbian civilians and soldiers in the area of Zavidovici and Vozuca in 1995, Pecanac has said that after an attack by the Muslim Army in September 1995, Serbian soldiers were forced to withdraw from their positions through the woods, but could not remember the name of a place where they were taken captive and where they were taken afterwards.

“While we were hiding in a pit, we saw soldiers coming towards us. Some of them had beards and spoke in a foreign language. We knew they were mujahideen. They captured us and first took us to a village, and later to a mujahideen camp,” Pecanac has said.

Public Promotion of Ustasha Symbolic in Jasenovac – Humiliation of Victims
Wednesday, 07 December 2016
KOZARSKA DUBICA, December 5 /SRNA/ - The Public Institution "Memorial Zone Donja Gradina" believes that any public promotion of Ustasha symbols, which represent denial of history and humiliation of victims, is inappropriate, director of this institution Tanja Tulekovic told SRNA.

"NDH’s legal provisions legitimized ethnic cleansing of its territory and seizure of Serb and Jewish property, prohibited the use of the Cyrillic alphabet, and established the most notorious concentration camp during the Second World War, in which 700,000 innocent people - Serbs, Jews and Roma were killed in the most horrible torment," says Tulekovic.

She has noted that the revision of history is underway in Croatia in the year which marks 75th anniversary of the establishment of the Jasenovac concentration camp and the beginning of the NDH’s genocidal policy.

Apart from Basic, at least 200 persons more to be prosecuted
Tuesday, 22 November 2016
Azra Basic, suspected of war crimes against Serbs in Derventa in 1992, was extradited today from the US to the BiH Prosecutor’s Office.
 
BANJALUKA, November 22 /SRNA/ - President of the Republika Srpska Association of Women Victims of War, Bozica Zivkovic Rajilic, is of the opinion that the BiH judiciary, apart from Azra Basic, should have indicted and prosecuted at least 200 persons more for war crimes committed against Serbs in Derventa.

“Charging only two to five persons for war crimes against Serbs in Derventa is inappropriate, as Azra Basic did not commit the crimes alone," Rajlic told SRNA, commenting on today's extradition of Basic from US to the BiH Prosecutor's Office.

Rajilic says that the Republika Srpska Association of Women Victims of War welcomes the arrest of Azra Basic and her extradition to BiH, expressing her hope for a fair trial before the Court of BiH.

WORLD EXCLUSIVE
The European, November 18-24, 1994

By Askold Krushelnycky, Chief Correspondent, in Vitez,
and Ian Mather, Diplomatic Editor


The United States, chastised by its European allies for its decision to stop enforcing the arms embargo against Bosnia, is already deeply involved in helping the war effort of the mainly Muslim government army, The European can reveal.

European sources confirm that small teams of non-uniformed personnel working for the CIA are now in position in Bosnia and have begun providing direct assistance to the Bosnian Muslims. That assistance includes training in tactical operations, providing satellite intelligence and controlling air traffic. "They are teaching the Bosnian Muslims how to fight the Bosnian Serbs," said a European defence source. "We are talking about the Americans taking sides. They have, in fact, joined in the war."

The European has learned that the deal was sealed among the rubble of the main street of the central Bosnian town of Gornji Vakuf, with an earnest 30-minute conversation between a group of senior American officers and the Bosnian army's most important field commander.
