HLC On War Crimes Trial In Niš

On 11 October this year, the Military Court in Niš, central Serbia, handed down the first ruling in a case of a war crime committed during the armed conflict in Kosovo. The Court based its judgment on the confessions of Danilo Tešić and Mišel Seregi, formerly soldiers of the Yugoslav Army, to killing two unidentified Kosovo Albanian civilians and burning their bodies, and a statement made by Capt Rade Radojević during the investigation that the murders were ordered by a senior military security officer, Lt Col Zlatan Mančić. Mančić was sentenced to seven years, Capt Radojević to five years, and Tešić and Seregi to three years in prison respectively.
