The Appeals Chamber Judgement in the case of Mićo Stanišić and Stojan Župljanin, two former high ranking Bosnian Serb officials, is scheduled to be rendered on Thursday, 30 June 2016 at 3:30 p.m. in Courtroom I.
Mićo Stanišić, former Minister of the Interior of Republika Srpska, and Stojan Župljanin, former Chief of the Regional Security Services Centre of Banja Luka, were indicted as participants in a joint criminal enterprise (JCE) aimed at permanently removing Bosnian Muslims, Bosnian Croats, and other non-Serbs from the territory of a planned Serbian state in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH). The Trial Chamber found that Stanišić and Župljanin participated in this JCE and that many of the crimes committed in a number of municipalities in BiH were foreseeable to the accused. The Trial Chamber sentenced both Stanišić and Župljanin to 22 years’ imprisonment for crimes against humanity and war crimes committed between April and December 1992 in BiH.
