One day after the Appellate Chamber of the Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina sentenced Momir Savic to 17 years in prison for crimes committed in the Visegrad area, Savic disappeared from Visegrad. He is suspected to have fled over the border to Serbia – a safe haven for Visegrad war criminals.
In 2008, the Trial Chamber released Momir Savic from custody and took all his travel documents. Savic was obliged to report to the Visegrad Police Station everyday.
