Bosnian Genocide, Other Than Srebrenica

In 1994, Austrian court tried Dusko Cvjetkovic, who was charged with genocide in Bosnia and Herzegovina. However, he was acquitted.

In 1997 German courts sentenced Novislav Djajic to five years for complicity in murders committed in Foca. He was released early and has since been deported. [note: The judgement ruled that genocide took place in the Bosnian municipality of Foča]

In 2001, the German courts sentenced Maksim Sokolovic to nine years’ imprisonment for complicity in genocide committed in Kalesija.

Meanwhile, Germany saw the first trial for genocide since the end of the World War Two when local courts sentenced Nikola Jorgic in 2000 to life imprisonment for genocide in the Doboj area.

Pronouncing the verdict, the German Federal Court said that German courts had the right “to try genocide indictees, no matter where the crime was committed”.

German courts in 2001 meanwhile sentencted Djuradj Kuslic [Kusljic], a former police chief in Vrbanjci, near Kotor Varos, to life imprisonment for complicity in genocide.
