Two kosovo Serbs on trial for genocide

The trial of two Kosovo Serbs, Miroslav Vuckovic and Bozur Bisevac, for genocide resumes before the District Court in Kosovska Mitrovica on Tuesday, 31 October. Bisevac is being tried in absentia. According to the indictment, Vuckovic and Bisevac and other unidentified persons forced the ethnic Albanian inhabitants of Suvi Do and Gusgevac villages to leave their homes by shooting off firearms. They are also charged with looting and torching Albanian houses and the murder of Hazire Sahiti, an elderly woman, whose house they allegedly set afire “even though they were aware she was inside.” In the indictment broght on 11 November last year, the prosecutor proposed the calling of 25 witnesses. The five witnesses heard so far accused Vuckovic and Bisevac of crimes not cited in the indictment, including torture and killing of civilians.Counsel for the defense – Miodrag Brkljac, Miro Delevic, Zoran Janicijevic and Ljubomir Pantovic – pointed to the contradictory testimonies of the witnesses, some of which conflicted with the statements they made during the investigation.
