Trial Chamber III of the ICTY (Judges Antonetti, presiding, Prandler and Trechsel) today returned to The Hague from a six-day on-site visit to Bosnia and Herzegovina, where the judges visited locations relevant to the proceedings in the case of Prlic et al. Members of the Prosecution and the Defence also participated in the visit.
In the Prlic et al. case, six high-level leaders of the Bosnian Croat wartime entity Herceg-Bosna are on trial for their alleged responsibility for war crimes against Bosnian Muslims and other non-Croats from areas in south-western and central Bosnia and Herzegovina. The indictment focuses on alleged crimes committed in the municipalities of Prozor, Gornji Vakuf, Jablanica, Mostar, Ljubuski, Stolac, Capljina and Vares.
The Trial Chamber expresses its thanks to all external agencies that supported the practical implementation of the visit, especially the State Investigation and Protection Agency of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the police forces of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as the European Union Police Mission and EUFOR.
