The Court of Appeals in Belgrade: Serbia is responsible for the torture and inhumane treatment of Bosniaks in the Šljivovica concentration camp
The Court of Appeals in Belgrade (Court of Appeals) amended the judgment of the First Basic Court in Belgrade and rendered a final judgment stating that Serbia is responsible for the torture and inhumane treatment of the Bosniaks Enes Bogilović and Mušan Džebo from Žepa, committed by members of the Ministry of the Interior (MOI). Bogilović and Džebo were detained in the concentration camp Šljivovica (municipality Čajetina) in 1995 and 1996. The Court of Appeals also obliged the State to pay them compensation to the amount of 600,000 RSD. Although the amount awarded may not constitute fair compensation for the victims, the Humanitarian Law Center (HLC) points out that the final court assessment of the treatment of captured Bosniaks in the camp Šljivovica by members of the MOI represents the first institutional recognition of the atrocities committed against Bosniaks in the concentration camps at Šljivovica and Mitrovo Polje.
