Prison sentences suspended
(19.11.2013. 08:20)

After the Constitutional Court of BIH, in its session on 22 October 2013, upheld the appeals of the defendants convicted before the Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina, found the violation of rights of defendants stemming from Article 7(1) of the European Convention and ordered the Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina to „reach a new decision in accordance with Article 7(1) of the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms in an exigent procedure“, the Appeals Division of the Court of BIH rendered the Decision on 18 November 2013 suspending the prison sentence in relation to the following:

 

-       Slobodan Jakovljević (sentenced to the long-term imprisonment of 28 years for the criminal offense of Genocide)

-       Aleksandar Radovanović (sentenced to the long-term imprisonment of 32 years for the criminal offense of Genocide)

-       Branislav Medan (sentenced to the long-term imprisonment of 28 years for the criminal offense of Genocide)

-       Brane Džinić (sentenced to the long-term imprisonment of 32 years for the criminal offense of Genocide)

-       Milenko Trifunović (sentenced to the long-term imprisonment of 33 years for the criminal offense of Genocide)

-       Petar Mitrović (sentenced to the long-term imprisonment of 28 years for the criminal offense of Genocide)

-       Nikola Andrun (sentenced to the prison term of 18 years for the criminal offense of War Crimes against Civilians)

-       Milorad Savić (sentenced to the prison term of 21 years for the criminal offense of War Crimes against Civilians)

-       Mirko (son of Špiro) Pekez  (sentenced to the prison term of 14 years for the criminal offense of War Crimes against Civilians)

-       Mirko (son of Mile) Pekezu (sentenced to the prison term of 29 years for the criminal offense of War Crimes against Civilians).

 

Under the decision suspending the prison sentence the aforementioned persons  are to be released immediately.

 

Revoking of the appeals verdicts of the Court of BIH by the Constitutional Court of BIH resulted in the lack of statutory ground for the convicted persons to further serve sentences. 

 

No appeals lie against this Decision.
