Bosnia stops war crimes investigation of former president Ejup Ganic

Bosnia’s prosecution said Tuesday it has decided to halt a probe for alleged war crimes of former wartime president Ejup Ganic and 13 others in a case also investigated by neighbouring Serbia.

“It was established that the behaviour of these (14) suspects does not constitute a war crime,” the Bosnian prosecution said in a statement, adding that the conclusion was based on testimonies of 352 witnesses and 412 pieces of evidence.

Serbia accuses the 14 officials of playing a role in an attack on a convoy of the then Yugoslav army as it was withdrawing from Sarajevo in the early days of 1992-95 war in Bosnia.
