Božidar Kuvelja ordered into custody
(19.01.2011. 15:44)

On 19 January 2011 the Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) rendered a Decision in the Božidar Kuvelja case ordering the suspect Božidar Kuvelja into one-month custody. Pursuant to this Decision his custody may last until 17 February 2011. Božidar Kuvelja is suspected of the criminal offence of Genocide.


Having examined evidence that was submitted, the Court concluded that there is grounded suspicion that the suspect committed the criminal offence he has been charged with. The Court ordered the suspect into custody having found that there are particular circumstances indicating that, if released, he might hinder the inquiry by influencing witnesses and accomplices. Furthermore, the Court ordered custody due to exceptional circumstances which indicate that, given the manner of its perpetration or its consequences, the release of this person would result in a realistic threat to public order.
