The Bosnian state prosecution has filed an indictment against Milan Komad, a former member of the Bosnian Serb Army, charging him with murder in Visegrad.
Komad has been charged with killing one person in the village of Kosovo Polje in the municipality of Visegrad at the beginning of June 1992.

According to the charges, at the time Kosovo Polje was inhabited by Bosniaks who’d left their homes for security reasons and crossed to the other side of the Drina River as refugees.

“Noticing a person who was hiding in his yard, the defendant came running onto his property and said, ‘Stop.’ Fearing for his life, the person tried to run away. The defendant then fired a shot from an automatic weapon and killed him,” an announcement from the state prosecution read.

Komad is defending himself at liberty. His place of residence is Neum.

The indictment has been forwarded to the Bosnian state court for confirmation.

On June 27, 1992, the eastern town of Visegrad saw 70 of its Bosnian Muslim inhabitants killed by Serb forces. Among the victims there was one-year-old baby.

World Bulletin / News Desk

A sombre ceremony held Saturday has marked the 23rd anniversary of one of the Bosnian War’s most brutal massacres.
On June 27, 1992, the eastern town of Visegrad saw 70 of its Bosnian Muslim inhabitants — including women and children — killed by Serb forces in one incident.
Serb fighters forced their victims into a house before locking the doors and setting the structure ablaze. Those who tried to escape the fire through the windows were shot with automatic weapons.
Among the victims was a one-year-old baby.
Saturday’s ceremony — held at the scene of the massacre — was attended by relatives of those murdered, as well as the Women Victims of War Association.
Esad Tufekcic, whose two young children and wife were killed, said the massacre should never be forgotten.
“What happened here was a tragedy that the human mind cannot understand.
“I still do not understand how a human being could burn a mother with her child in her arms,” said Tufekcic.
President of the Association of Women Victims of War, Bakira Hasecic, said that as part of 23rd anniversary a monument to the victims would be placed in the town.
So far, the International Criminal Court and the Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina, have sentenced just eight Serb soldiers to prison for crimes committed in Visegrad.
Among the criminals, only Milan Lukic was jailed for life; the other seven defendants have received sentences of between 8 to 30 years.
Many of those thought to be involved in the massacre have never been brought to trial.

——————-
Porodice su se posljednji put oprostile od Hasiba Tabakovića, Naze Ćoso i Đulse Fehrić, najstarije žrtve genocida u Višegradu, koja je kada je ubijena imala 90 godina.

Dženaza namaz je obavljen u prisustvu dvjestotinjak vjernika, nakon što je odata počast svim višegradskim žrtvama na mostu Mehmed-paše Sokolovića.

-Moja nana Đulsa je ubijena zajedno sa većom grupom žena koje su u maju 1992. godine odvdene iz njihovih kuća iz Ulice 22. decembar. Devedeset godina je imala, kome je ona bila kriva – rekao je danas na dženazi njen unuk Hariz Fehrić. Kako je pojasnio, posmrtni ostaci rahmetli Đulse su pronađeni na području Srebrenice.

Nakon dženaze porodice su obišle i mjesto gdje je bila masovna grobnica na lokalitetu Bosanske Jagodine, gdje je pronađen veći broj višegradskih žrtava.
