“On 28 October 2014, The Bosnian state court on Tuesday found Milisavljevic and Pantelic guilty of taking part in the massacre of the 48 men from Visegrad in the Sokolac municipality on June 15, 1992.

The men who died were in a prisoner convoy which left Visegrad on June 14. They were then separated from the other prisoners and taken to the Paklenik pit, where Bosnian Serb police officers and soldiers shot them or beat them to death.

The bodies were then thrown into the pit, from which they were exhumed eight years later.

Only one man, Ferid Spahic, managed to survive and give evidence at the trial. He testified that Milisavljevic took part in the killings.

“The witness said that Milisavljevic was the first man to open fire,” said presiding judge Vesna Jesenkovic.

The convictions were also based on the testimony of bus drivers from the convoy, who said that Milisavljevic and Pantelic were part of the group that took the men to the Paklenik pit.

Even though nobody saw Pantelic shoot prisoners, the judge explained, he was found guilty of “assisting in the murder of civilians”.

A third defendant, Ljubomir Tasic, was cleared of the charges against him.

The judge said that the Bosnian prosecution didn’t provide adequate evidence that Tasic took part in taking the civilian prisoners out of Visegrad. Witnesses only said that Tasic told people to go because he could not protect them, Jesenkovic explained.”

Spomen-obilježje ubijenim Bošnjacima u Dobrunu, Višegrad

U mjestu Dobrun, dvadesetak kilometara od Višegrada, danas je otvoreno spomen-obilježje za 131 civila bošnjačke nacionalnosti, koja su ubijena početkom proteklog rata u BiH.

Spomen-obilježje kod Careve džamije, prve džamije izgrađene na tlu BiH po dolasku turske vojske, izgradilo je Udruženje „Dobrunjani i prijatelji“, poznatije kao „Dobrun – Stari grad“ , javlja Anadolu Agency (AA).

Prethodno je dobijena saglasnost Vakufske direkcije BiH, kao i dozvole Opštine Višegrad. Prema riječima predsjednika Udruženja Esada Hrustića, bilo je teško prikupiti sve podatke o imenima stradalih, što je rađeno uz pomoć preživjelih članova porodica, a broj ubijenih u napadima nije konačan.

– Naši preci, naša djeca, naša braća i sestre su zaslužili da konačno uradimo ovako nešto. Ponosni smo na to – rekao je Hrustić.

Historija bilježi da su kroz Dobrun prolazili i uglavnom živjeli samo dobri ljudi, a njihova djela se spominju u historiji bosanskoj, kaže predsjednik Medžlisa IZ Višegrad Bilal Memišević.

– Dobre ljude, pitomu zemlju dobrunsku, spominju Evlija Čelebija i svi oni koji su prije njega prolazili kroz Dobrun i pisali o ovom mjestu. Naravno, kroz Dobrun su prolazili i oni koji nisu dobri i zbog njih mi danas i jesmo ovdje, da glasno i jasno u dobrom Dobrunu kažemo da nećemo dozvoliti da nam se iste ili slične stvari u budućnosti događaju – poručio je Memišević.

Predsjednik Skupštine opštine Višegrad Suljo Fejzić kazao je kako su preživjeli izgradnjom ovakvih spomenika prinuđeni pisati istoriju o stradanju svojih najmilijih, jer to na način kako se istorija piše u ovoj državi nije moguće.

– Ovo je naš način da sačuvamo od zaborava sve naše žrtve i ono što nam se desilo u proteklom ratu. Dželatima ovih ljudi ništa nije bilo sveto. Ovi ljudi su ubijeni samo zato što su bili Bošnjaci. Ako mi ne budemo pričali istinu o stradanju Bošnjaka Višegrada, radit će to oni koji nisu bili ni blizu ovim prostorima, ali i dželati i ubice – rekao je Fejzić.

Otvaranju spomen-obilježja prisustvovale su desetine prijeratnih stanovnika Dobruna, ali i povratnici u ovu višegradsku mjesnu zajednicu. Spomen-obilježje otvorila su djeca čiji su roditelji porijeklom iz ovog kraja, a u okviru programa uručene su zahvalnice najzaslužnijima za realizaciju ovog projekta.
