Trial of war crime Zeljko Ivanovic
INTRODUCTION OF MATERIAL EVIDENCE POSTPONED
The Court of BiH has postponed the introduction of material evidence at the trial of Zeljko Ivanovic, who is charged with genocide in Srebrenica, because the Defense did not prepare the documents as was asked by the Trial chamber.
„You need to arrange these documents by numbers, as we previously talked about“, said Darko Samardzic, Presiding of the Trial chamber, who postponed the hearing until January 13th.
The BiH Prosecution charges Zeljko Ivanovic, also known as Arkan, with having participated in the capture of a large group of men and taking away and shooting more than 1,000 men in the Kravica Agricultural Cooperative premises on July 13, 1995.
The indictment alleges that Ivanovic was a member of the Skelani Third Unit with the Second Special Police Squad of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Republika Srpska, MUP RS.
Ivanovic’s trial has started in August 2009 and the Defence is currently presenting its evidence at the trial.
The indictee is in custody which was ordered in the middle of Decmber, after he was released for seven days. He was arrested in March 2009, when he was ordered into custody.
