Serbian Prosecution opens Croatia massacre case

Serbian Deputy War Crimes Prosecutor Bruno Vekarić says information regarding massacre of 9 Serb civilians in Croatia in 1995 prompted them to open the case.

He said that the recent guilty verdict against two former Croatian generals incited people to speak out about war crimes that happened during and after Operation Storm. 

The Dvor massacre was committed by 12 masked individuals, as witnessed by a Danish soldier who was part of a UN unit that watched it happen from meters away.

“Croatia also has an open case about the incident,” said Vekarić. He wonders, however, why the Danish soldier remained silent for so long and says there is going to be an inquiry into that.

The deputy war crimes prosecutor supported the initiative to collect a million signatures in support of founding a Regional Commission Tasked with Establishing the Facts about All Victims of War Crimes and Other Serious Human Rights Violations Committed on the Territory of the Former Yugoslavia in the period from 1991-2001.
