 2                           [Open session]

 3                           [The accused entered court]

 4                           --- Upon commencing at 9.18 a.m.

 5             THE REGISTRAR:  Good morning, Your Honours.  Good morning to

 6     everybody in and around the courtroom.

 7             This is case IT-08-91-T, the Prosecutor versus Mico Stanisic and

 8     Stojan Zupljanin.

 9             JUDGE HALL:  Thank you, Mr. Registrar.

10             Good morning to everyone.  May we have the appearances, please.

11             MS. KORNER:  Good morning, Your Honours.  Joanna Korner,

12     Crispian Smith and Selma Sakic for the Prosecution this morning.

13             MR. CVIJETIC: [Interpretation] Good morning, Your Honours.  On

14     behalf of Mr. Stanisic's Defence team, Slobodan Cvijetic,

15     Eugene O'Sullivan, and Tatjana Savic.

16             MR. KRGOVIC:  Good morning, Your Honours.  Dragan Krgovic,

17     Igor Pantelic, Aleksandar Aleksic, and Jason Antley, appearing for

18     Zupljanin Defence.

19             JUDGE HALL:  Thank you.

20             We're grateful to the parties for their indulgence in terms of

21     the late start this morning the reasons for which will become patent in a

22     moment, but that will be in private session.  Is there any matter to be

23     dealt with in open session before we --

24             MS. KORNER:  Your Honour, there are two matters.  One which will

25     have to be dealt with in private, because it relates to the witness, and

Page 16240

 1     the second matter, however, is one which we're delighted to be able to

 2     tell Your Honours about.

 3             After discussions with the Defence, you will recall we asked for

 4     a witness summons for a particular witness who was going to cover

 5     adjudicated fact 928.  That was Witness 250.  And I'm delighted to say

 6     that both Defence teams will stipulate to that adjudicated fact as

 7     originally written without the crossings out.  So it will read, perhaps

 8     just for the record:

 9             "Enver Burnic, a Bosnian Muslim former policeman, was taken

10     outside the Betonirka factory garages on St. Vitez Day, 28th of June,"

11     should be 1992, "by shift commander Martic, a Bosnian Serb policeman who

12     was drunk, and by two policemen and beaten.  He was told at the time that

13     a bullet was too costly a way for him to die."

14             So that is the full adjudicated fact which the Defence will

15     stipulate to.

16             JUDGE DELVOIE:  Ms. Korner, do we understand now that now that is

17     an agreed fact?

18             MS. KORNER:  Yes, Your Honour.  By stipulation I mean -- that's

19     actually an American term, but I would put it as an agreed fact.

20             So that's the first [Overlapping speakers] ...

21             JUDGE DELVOIE:  I see Mr. Zecevic [sic] nodding --

22             MS. KORNER:  Yes.

23             JUDGE DELVOIE:  -- so it is.  Thank you.

24             MS. KORNER:  And Mr. Krgovic is also nodding.  I --

25             MR. KRGOVIC: [Interpretation] Yes, Your Honour.  The Defence has

Page 16241

 1     been trying all this time to find a way to save Their Honours time by

 2     agreeing on facts.  Therefore, we have stipulated to this fact together

 3     with the Prosecution.  We will continue work on this, but it will take a

 4     while.

 5             It is not just the matter of looking at facts and the underlying

 6     evidence.  Rather, since these are facts from a different case, we have

 7     to look into what other witnesses testified to on these same events, and

 8     that's why it makes it difficult for us to stipulate to certain facts

 9     right away.  We want to make sure that the event really played out the

10     way it is described in the adjudicated facts.

11             JUDGE DELVOIE:  We appreciate the effort, Mr. Krgovic.

12             MS. KORNER:  Your Honours, a second agreed fact -- oh, sorry.

13                           [Trial Chamber confers]

14             JUDGE HALL:  So the position --

15             MS. KORNER:  [Overlapping speakers] ...

16             JUDGE HALL:  Sorry, before we -- let's finish dealing with this

17     matter.  The position at bottom is that the subpoena -- the application

18     for subpoena is withdrawn in respect of 250.

19             MS. KORNER:  Exactly.

20             JUDGE HALL:  So we now have that on the record.  Thank you.

21             MS. KORNER:  Your Honour, the second agreed fact is 564.  We

22     filed a motion on the 8th of October to add Witness ST-016 to cover that

23     fact.  That is also now going to be an agreed fact and will read as

24     follows:

25             "On 10th of July, 1992, Bosnian Serb special police and soldiers

Page 16242

 1     in JNA uniforms rounded up Bosnian Muslim men and women from the Biljani

 2     hamlets at the local school building."

 3             And that's now also an agreed fact by both parties.  So, again,

 4     our application for -- to add ST-016 is withdrawn.  And if perhaps both

 5     Defence parties again could confirm that this is now agreed.

 6             MR. KRGOVIC: [Interpretation] Yes, Your Honours.  I can confirm

 7     this.  We had contacts with the Prosecution yesterday about this

 8     adjudicated fact.

 9             Another matter.  In order for us to review all the adjudicated

10     facts and the underlying documentation, unless we manage to do it after

11     this witness's testimony, we may require one or two working days next

12     week to review these facts.  I will be able to give you a definite

13     position tomorrow.  These two days would help save us at least 15 to

14     20 court days in general.  So this afternoon we will look into the

15     various facts and see how much time we need to review them, and this will

16     substantially reduce the time of testimony required for these witnesses.

17             MS. KORNER:  Mr. Krgovic is asking for two days off, in other

18     words, not to call a witness.  It's a bit late because we've got

19     witnesses lined up and we really can't unwind them.  So, you know, even

20     if it takes three afternoons or whatever, we'd still prefer -- in any

21     event it is only a four-day week next week because of the holiday on

22     Monday.

23             So, I'm sorry, I mean as much as we'd like to get some agreement,

24     we do have witnesses lined up for the week.

25             MR. KRGOVIC: [Interpretation] If we could get a list of these

Page 16243

 1     witnesses and deal with them first, and then -- or, rather, focus on

 2     those who would be coming up later on so we have time enough to decide

 3     not to call them.

 4             Again, I repeat, these are thousands, upon thousands of pages of

 5     testimony of these witnesses in other cases.  We are simple physically

 6     unable to go through them all and analyse them thoroughly.  We do have a

 7     duty toward our clients to defend them appropriately wherever possible.

 8     Matters that are quite obvious and evident can be agreed to right away.

 9     Others have to be looked into.

10             And let me just add, these adjudicated facts we've stipulated to

11     are the results of precisely such work.  I will be able to come up with a

12     full proposal next week because I don't want to make promises I will not

13     be able to keep.

14             MS. KORNER:  Your Honours, as I said, Mr. Krgovic's got Monday

15     anyhow.  And the weekend.

16             JUDGE DELVOIE:  Ms. Korner, but I nevertheless think that it

17     would be helpful if we could be provided, and the Defence, of course,

18     with the list of witnesses for next week and the week thereafter.  Some

19     sort of planning possible.

20             MS. KORNER:  Yes.  Your Honour, we can certainly do that.  We

21     know exactly who is coming next week.  I'm not entirely sure about the

22     week after, but I will check that with Ms. Pidwell.

23             JUDGE DELVOIE:  Thank you very much.

24                           [Trial Chamber confers]

25             JUDGE HALL:  I had indicated when we started that the Judges' own

Page 16244

 1     work in the 15 minutes before we took the Bench, we would have been

 2     reporting on but having regard to what counsel have indicated, we may or

 3     may not have to speak to what we had -- the path that we were suggesting

 4     and we're going to look at it again in the course of today, and, if

 5     necessary, we will deal with this later.

 6             MS. KORNER:  Then, Your Honours, before the witness comes in, can

 7     we go into private session, in any event.

 8             JUDGE HALL:  Yes.

14             THE REGISTRAR:  We're back in open session, Your Honours.

15                           [The witness takes the stand]

16             JUDGE HALL:  Good morning to you, sir.  Before Mr. Krgovic

17     resumes his cross-examination, I remind you you're still on your oath.

18             You may be seated.

19             THE WITNESS: [Interpretation] Thank you.

20                           WITNESS:  ST-197 [Resumed]

21                           [Witness answered through interpreter]

22                           Cross-examination by Mr. Krgovic: [Continued]

23        Q.   [Interpretation] Good morning, sir.

24        A.   Good morning.

25        Q.   Yesterday we left off discussing the events surrounding

Page 16249

 1     Kotor Varos.  I won't be using maps now.

 2             Can you tell me, the information you had in June of 1992, the

 3     intelligence you had, did it indicate that the Muslim/Croat forces had

 4     practically Kotor Varos under their control in some sort of an

 5     encirclement?

 6        A.   The intelligence available to me at the time - and, of course, I

 7     don't have the relevant documents with me here - indicated that the

 8     municipality of Kotor Varos was a conglomerate of localities permeated by

 9     tensions which had existed from before.  The fact of the matter is that

10     there were all sorts of political colours represented, and, by the same

11     token, military formations in the various villages.  That's why one could

12     say that even the urban core of Kotor Varos found itself in some sort of

13     an encirclement, in respect of these rural areas.

14        Q.   You will have been aware of the fact that before the clashes in

15     Kotor Varos broke out, these formations would block roads, either in the

16     direction of Teslic or in the direction of Banja Luka.

 3   (redacted)

 4   (redacted)

 5   (redacted)

 6             These were stories I heard, nothing that I or my unit saw.  I

 7     suppose other witnesses could give you more thorough information on this.

 8        Q.   In answer to the Prosecutor's question in September earlier this

 9     year, you recognised Slobodan Dubocanin in a piece of footage shown to

10     you by the Prosecutor, if you remember.  If I remember correctly,

11     Slobodan Dubocanin wore a uniform that was not your typical JNA or

12     VRS uniform but it bore the insignia of armoured mechanised units, did it

13     not?

14        A.   There was a still where I recognised Slobodan Dubocanin.  I met

15     him on a couple of occasions, and he introduced himself to me.

16             In the footage, I was not able to see any insignia of his

17     officer's rank or the armoured mechanised units.  However, I stated, and

18     I stand by that, that sometime in September or October he came to see me

19     because he wanted to report to the brigade in Knezevo.  At that time he

20     had the rank of a lieutenant, and he also had a tank on his patch, which

21     stood, of course, for the armoured mechanised units.  That was when I saw

22     his insignia, not before.

23        Q.   Before that, you did not pay particular attention to that, nor

24     did you see him that often, to be able to recognise the insignia; is that

25     right?

Page 16251

 1        A.   Yes.  I didn't pay attention to it.

 2        Q.   The Prosecution asked you about a special unit, although it was

 3     not within your area of responsibility, as you rightly put.  Do you know

 4     that, in fact, there were two types of special units in Kotor Varos;

 5     namely, one, from the CSB Banja Luka; and the other which was under the

 6     direct command of Mr. Stevilovic and directly subordinated to

 7     General Talic?

 8        A.   This is the first time I'm hearing this.  I know that the unit --

 9     I know about the unit from the CSB of Banja Luka.  Milan Stevilovic was a

10     colonel, chief of security of what was by then already the

11     1st Krajina Corps.  I don't know that he had a unit of his own.  I had

12     never heard anything like this before.

13             MS. KORNER:  It's been put as though there's been evidence to

14     this effect.  And unless I'm very much mistaken, I don't believe there

15     has been any evidence to this effect.

16             I'm sorry, can I just repeat, I do -- it's the form of the

17     question again.  It shouldn't be put as though this is an established

18     fact.

19             MR. KRGOVIC: [Interpretation] Your Honour, I will recall that

20     there was evidence of this type before the Chamber, and I just wanted to

21     know if the witness was aware of this.  I don't want to name the witness

22     who testified on this.

23             JUDGE HALL:  Well, inasmuch as the recollection of counsel differ

24     on this point, I -- I'll allow Mr. Krgovic to proceed.  But, of course,

25     you remember to phrase the question in such a way that you aren't telling

Page 16252

 1     the witness on the stand what another witness has said.

 2             MR. KRGOVIC: [Interpretation] My question for the witness was

 3     whether he was aware of it.  I didn't suggest that there was.  And now

 4     since the Prosecutor objected to the form of the question, I wanted to

 5     say that there was a witness who testified to this effect.

 6        Q.   Sir, was Colonel Stevilovic present at the time - that's to say,

 7     in the summertime - in Kotor Varos; and was he killed in one of the

 8     ambushes in the area?

 9        A.   Colonel Stevilovic came to the area two or three times.  I can't

10     be sure.  It's been a long time.  He definitely did come, and I suppose

11     it was his call of duty and as ordered by his superior, General Talic.

12             My understanding was that he was to look into the situation in

13     general, in terms of security, and, on one occasion, he talked to a group

14     of people in order to ascertain what the situation was like in the

15     village of Vecici.  The objective was to find a solution once and for all

16     to reduce tensions.  From what I was able to see, his efforts were

17     directed at easing tensions and making sure that people were able to live

18     together.  So he was supposed to intermediate between the leading

19     structures in the village of Vecici and the authorities in Banja Luka.

20             So, yes, Colonel Stevilovic was there two or three times, from

21     what I knew.  Yes, in Kotor Varos.

22        Q.   Colonel Stevilovic was chief of security of the

23     1st Krajina Corps; is that right?  Is my understanding correct?

24        A.   Yes.  He was chief of security in the 1st Krajina Corps.  And up

25     the chain of command, he was directly subordinated to the corps

Page 16253

 1     commander.

 2        Q.   After his death, Colonel Bogojevic replaced him; is that right?

 3        A.   Yes.  After the assassination of Colonel Stevilovic,

 4     Stevo Bogojevic replaced him.

 5        Q.   At the time, in July, shortly after the assassination of

 6     Mr. Stevilovic, Stipo Maric, aka Sprzo, was killed.  I think there was a

 7     name you mentioned yesterday as well.

 8        A.   Well, yes.  There was an action with members of the MUP when the

 9     name by the nickname of Sprzo was killed.  It was a group of people - I

10     don't know how many; I didn't look into that - that was when I heard that

11     Stipe Maric, aka Sprzo, was killed.

12        Q.   At any rate, he was definitely unable to take part in the

13     negotiations about disarming in Vecici in September and October later

14     that year?  And I'm referring to Maric.

15        A.   Of course.  A dead man cannot engage in negotiations.

16        Q.   Let me show you a document.

17             MR. KRGOVIC: [Interpretation] Can we please show to the witness

18     P1502.

19        Q.   Sir, this is a report drafted by a MUP officer, MUP of Republika

20     Srpska, who toured or visited the CSB in the area and who's talking about

21     the special detachment and the meeting.

22             You are certainly aware that at certain points the units of this

23     police special detachment had been put at the disposal at the

24     1st Krajina Corps under the direct command of General Talic.

25             Would you please take a look at the last sentence that we can see

Page 16254

 1     on this page.  Here it is stated that the police special detachment, its

 2     strength being 100 members, is placed under the command of General Talic

 3     in the 1st Krajina Corps, as of 10th of August, 1992.

 4             MR. KRGOVIC: [Interpretation] Can we please have the following

 5     page of the document in the B/C/S put up on the screen.

 6        Q.   We see here that the handover of the unit will be carried out on

 7     the 10th of August in Kotor Varos where the unit is deployed.

 8             The handover will be attended by Djuro Bulic, SJB sector chief on

 9     behalf of the CSB, and by Colonel Bogojevic, military security chief on

10     behalf of the 1st Krajina Corps.

11             Sir, were you aware then that the 1st Krajina Corps or, rather,

12     Colonel Bogojevic took up the authority and command over this unit that

13     they were integrated into the VRS, or, rather, into the 1st Krajina

14     Corps?

15        A.   I didn't know about that.  I did not attend the handover.  I see

16     the document for the first time.

17             MR. KRGOVIC: [Interpretation] In relation to Mr. Dubocanin, I

18     would like to ask 2D56 to be put up on the screen for the witness.

19             Could we please zoom in the Serbian version.

20        Q.   This is Slobodan Dubocanin's file, his personnel file.

21             MR. KRGOVIC: [Interpretation] And could we please see page 2 of

22     the document.

23        Q.   In the right segment of the document, we can see what his status

24     was.  Lieutenant, and then captain, as of 11 -- no, 20th of November,

14             MS. KORNER:  Your Honour, all this has been in open session.

15             Mr. Krgovic, all this is in open, and the answers ...

16             MR. KRGOVIC: [Interpretation] Your Honours, I tried to be careful

17     in my questions.  I spoke about the witness just being part of a brigade.

18     I didn't mention what his function was or rank.  Maybe the answers of the

19     witness would identify him.  Maybe it would be good to have this

20     redacted.  But I think my questions were such that it was not possible to

21     identify the witness.  We never mentioned his position or anything else.

22     A brigade has 2.000 troops so ...

23             I believe that this line of questioning cannot jeopardise the

24     identity of the witness, but if you feel it should be done, we can redact

25     it.

Page 16256

 1             JUDGE HALL:  There was earlier on a question that was -- which

 2     the Court Officer was alert to and that was redacted.  But I agree with

 3     Mr. Krgovic.  Unless I'm missing something, I don't think that any of the

 4     recent questions would have identified the witness.  Unless, of course,

 5     Ms. Korner, your concern was about the personal records of somebody -- of

 6     the individual who the subject of the present line of questions.

 7   (redacted)

 8   (redacted)

 9   (redacted)

10             JUDGE HALL:  Thank you.

11             Yes, so we'd redact that line.

12             MS. KORNER:  And all of the discussion that we've now had,

13     Your Honour, yes.

14             JUDGE HALL:  Of course.

15             MR. KRGOVIC: [Interpretation]

16        Q.   Answering to the Prosecutor's questions, you were shown also a

17     series of documents about your presence at the meetings of the

18     Crisis Staff where Mr. Djokanovic was also mentioned.  Outside of the

19     sessions or meetings, did you have an opportunity, maybe at some picnic

20     or during a lunch somewhere out in the open, did you have an opportunity

21     to spent some time with Mr. Djokanovic?

22        A.   I met Mr. Djokanovic on several occasions.  Mr. Djokanovic also

23     came to visit troops in Slavonia also, because some of the troops from

24     the 122nd Brigade were from the Kotor Varos municipality.  And, yes,

25     therefore, I did meet with him on two or three occasions when he came to

Page 16257

 1     visit us in Slavonia.  And not only him.  Some other municipal presidents

 2     as well.  It was an established practice that people from local

 3     authorities, primarily presidents of municipalities and the municipality

 4     Executive Boards, as it was called at the time, that they would come and

 5     tour the units.

 6             Now, whether I've ran into him at some picnic -- well, I don't

 7     know.  It was a time of war, not a time of picnics.  We may have met

 8     somewhere, but I cannot tell you when or where.  It may have happened

 9     that we have had lunch and that he came along.  I really don't remember.

10     I may have.

11        Q.   Then you probably wouldn't remember whether you attended a lunch

12     where Mr. Stojan Zupljanin was present as well as Mr. Slobodan Zupljanin

13     and Mr. Djokanovic?

14        A.   I don't remember anything of the sort.  It may have happened but

15     it was 18 years ago.  I have difficulty sometimes remembering what

16     happened yesterday, let alone 18 years ago.

17        Q.   I guess then you don't remember a conversation between

18     Mr. Djokanovic and Mr. Zupljanin about events in Kotor Varos.

19        A.   No, I don't remember that.

20             THE INTERPRETER:  Microphone, please.

21             MR. KRGOVIC: [Interpretation] I apologise for not switching on my

22     mic.

23        Q.   The OTP asked you a series of questions related to the town

24     defence command.  They showed you a document.  These were the minutes of

25     a Crisis Staff meeting that was held in Kotor Varos where there's mention

Page 16258

 1     of the town defence command.  Although that was not part of your area of

 2     responsibility, were you familiar with the fact that during a period

 3     because of the war, commands of the town defence was formed in the spirit

 4     of the JNA regulations?

 5        A.   I apologise in advance, but I will have to give you a longer

 6     answer because it is obvious that may have misunderstood this phenomena

 7     of town defences and what transpired in the conversations with the OTP.

 8             In peacetime, JNA had town defence commands -- or, rather, city

 9     defence commands that referred only to cities.  Sometimes they were

10     called commands of the Military District or garrisons and for a while

11     they were called city defence commands, but that applied to Belgrade,

12     Zagreb, Ljubljana, Sarajevo and such garrisons which had more

13     comprehensive civilian and military functions.  So that is one phenomena,

14     and I'm explaining the regulations.

15             Another phenomenon of the town defences is something that you can

16     find in the tactical and defence rule-books where there is description of

17     town defences when towns are in the zone of defence of a tactical combat

18     unit.

19             The third thing, and that was presented to me in a document

20     signed by General Pujic in late 1991 about establishment of civilian

21     affairs organs that were to take up carrying out some activities and also

22     be active in town defence duties within former SFRY, and I answered that

23     this document never took effect, because one cannot talk about crisis

24     areas within SFRY at a stage where two republics have already seceded

25     from it.

Page 16259

 1             I was also shown a document where either in Gornji or Donji Vakuf

 2     the command of the 19th Brigade had established a town defence command,

 3     and the document bore the stamp of the 19th Partisan Division or, rather,

 4     Brigade.  That was a JNA brigade.  And in my response, I said it was an

 5     improvisation because such a stamp was not legal anymore.

 6             I was shown this document by the War Presidency of Kotor Varos

 7     where one can see that town defence command was established in

 8     Kotor Varos, and whereby Mane Tepic was appointed either a commander or

 9     some kind of officer - I don't have the document in front of me - I have

10     heard of that only when I was reading this document.  I don't know that

11     Mane Tepic was the commander of the town defence and why would he be,

12     when the town included the command of the 1st Kotor Varos Light Infantry

13     Brigade?  Because, according to rules of combat for the brigade, the

14     commander of a military unit where the town is is automatically commander

15     of the town defence.  But I'm talking about defence in the tactical

16     sense, not defence as an organ or an institution.

17             So, yes, I've seen that in this document, but I really don't know

18     that Mane Tepic was or was not commander of any defence, for how long,

19     what his duties may have been.  What I do know is that before the

20     conflict broke out, Mane Tepic was the commander of the municipal

21     Territorial Defence Staff.  That's all I can say.

22             MR. KRGOVIC: [Interpretation] Could the witness please be shown

23     document 1510 [as interpreted].  It's a 65 ter document.  It's number 34

24     in the OTP binder.

25                           [Defence counsel confer]

Page 16260

 1             MR. KRGOVIC: [Interpretation] I apologise, I said 65 ter 10510.

 2             Can we please zoom in the Serbian version?

 3             This is a document, it's an excerpt of the minutes from the

 4     Crisis Staff meeting of 28th of July, 1992.

 5             THE INTERPRETER:  Interpreter's note, it's not very legible.

 6             MR. KRGOVIC: [Interpretation] In item number 1 -- and yes, can we

 7     please move to private session.

19                           [Open session]

20             THE REGISTRAR:  We're back in open session, Your Honours.

21                           [The witness stands down]

22                           --- Recess taken at 10.28 a.m.

23                           --- On resuming at 10.58 a.m.

24             MS. KORNER:  Your Honours, I'm sorry to delay the witness coming

25     back in again, but I think all sides, in particular, the Defence for

Page 16263

 1     Mr. Zupljanin, would welcome Your Honours' input on timings for the next

 2     week.

 3             Your Honours, at present, we have three witnesses next week to

 4     deal with adjudicated facts.  The fourth witness no longer applies,

 5     because we've just had the -- the agreed fact that Witness 250 was going

 6     to testify to agreed.

 7             The following week, all of the witnesses are to do with

 8     adjudicated facts.  So our suggestion would be, at present, we can fill

 9     next Friday by bringing up another witness.  But it occurred to us that

10     it may help if we had not only the Monday off, but the Tuesday off, and

11     by then we -- but only on the basis that the Defence teams of whom there

12     are numerous members, as Your Honours will have seen, can get to grips

13     with the adjudicated facts and tell us, finally, which ones they are

14     prepared now to agree.

15             So instead of bringing up a witness to fill Tuesday to Friday, we

16     would simply move back the three witnesses, one of them, ST-225, is

17     actually quite lengthy because it is an all-encompassing adjudicated fact

18     to do with the events in Banja Luka.  So we've asked for three hours

19     in-chief for him.

20             So that's our suggestion.  Now, I don't know whether that finds

21     favours with Your Honours, or we were in the middle of a rather animated

22     and inconclusive discussion about this, but that's our suggestion because

23     we really need to know whether any of the adjudicated-fact witnesses who

24     are coming the week of the 1st of November can be dispensed with.  And

25     I'm raising it now so that we can try and get an answer before the end of

Page 16264

 1     today's session.

 2             Your Honours, sorry, there's one other matter.  I'm so sorry to

 3     interrupt, but, obviously, from the point of view of planning, we need to

 4     have a ruling as soon as possible from Your Honours about the witnesses

 5     we've applied to call under the 92 bis procedure but which -- to which

 6     the Defence have objected.  Because if Your Honours rule that they must

 7     come, then they will be added in as soon as possible.

 8             JUDGE HALL:  I suppose I can say that ruling is imminent.

 9             Is the -- Ms. Korner's first point about the efficient use of

10     next week, are there any observations which the Defence would wish to

11     add; or is this something that your, quote/unquote, animated discussions

12     would continue and we would probably, at the beginning of the next

13     session, get a clearer idea as to where you stand?

14             MR. KRGOVIC: [Interpretation] Yes, Your Honours.  We have ongoing

15     discussions with the Prosecution.  Before taking a final decision, we,

16     the Defence teams, need to meet up and take up a joint position.

17             Now I have to focus on my cross-examination, but over the next

18     break, I will check and go through all the witnesses that Ms. Korner has

19     just referred to so that we can give you our position at the end of work

20     today.

21             JUDGE HALL:  Of course, today --

22                           [Trial Chamber confers]

23             JUDGE HALL:  Yes.  Today being Wednesday, if the next break is --

24     puts too much pressure on you, we could be informed in the usual manner

25     in the course of -- by the -- later in the afternoon.

Page 16265

 1             MS. KORNER:  Your Honour, I'm sorry, I don't want to be difficult

 2     about this, but we have to start making arrangements and in particular if

 3     we're going fill the Friday slot, because the -- the Defence say that --

 4     that -- that they cannot give us the definitive answer, then we need to

 5     get that in train this afternoon.

 6             So, if necessary, Your Honours could perhaps take, instead of

 7     20 minutes, 25 minutes to allow the Defence -- it is really not a

 8     difficult problem, this, whether they want the extra day and will come

 9     with a final decision, or don't.  It's as simple a question as that.

10                           [Trial Chamber and Legal Officer confer]

11                           [Trial Chamber confers]

12             JUDGE HALL:  The -- we appreciate Ms. Korner's concern about the

13     urgency of this matter, but we -- we think that the -- if necessary, that

14     the Defence should be allowed the extra few hours to deal with this at a

15     point later than the -- during the final session.  But if at all

16     possible, we would wish to be in a position to rule on this matter during

17     the third session today.

18             Reverting to the matter with which we opened this morning, the

19     Chamber has an observation to make, and that is as follows.

20             The Trial Chamber welcomes the ongoing discussions between the

21     parties to try to reach agreement as to stipulations.  The positive

22     effect that these discussions can have is amply demonstrated by the

23     withdrawal of the two applications this morning.  The Trial Chamber

24     reminds the parties that it has no formal notification of the nature or

25     scope of any of the stipulations already agreed or under discussion.

Page 16266

 1     This has raised concerns about the impact that they may have on other

 2     aspects of the case, in particular, the five recently filed motions for

 3     admission of evidence pursuant to Rule 92 bis and quater.

 4             The Trial Chamber therefore directs the parties, first, to file

 5     with the Chamber, no later than Friday of this week, a notice setting out

 6     in full the stipulations that have already been reached, for example, in

 7     relation to events in Visegrad.  Second, the Trial Chamber informs the

 8     parties that it will not address those Rule 92 bis and quater

 9     applications in respect of which the Defence has raised issues relating

10     to possible stipulations while those discussions are still ongoing.

11             In the interim, the Prosecution is directed to schedule the

12     affected Rule 92 bis witnesses as viva voce witnesses.

13             MS. KORNER:  I hear what Your Honours say on this matter.

14             In fact, I'm rising to my feet not because of that but because of

15     something that I raised with Mr. Krgovic; namely, when he put to the

16     witness that there was a special unit in Kotor Varos under the command of

17     Colonel Stevilovic, totally separate from the police special unit, in the

18     interim I asked Mr. Krgovic, because, as I said, I could not recall any

19     such evidence being given in the case, where that evidence came from, he

20     stated to me that it came from a witness, I cannot remember his number

21     now but he gave me the name, and we've checked that and there is no such

22     reference.

23             Now, Your Honour, I'm raising this because it's not the first

24     time, and I know how difficult it is when one is on one's feet to give

25     accurate quotation, that assertions are being made to a witness as though

Page 16267

 1     this was evidence in the case.  And, as I say, I would remind -- I would

 2     ask Your Honours to remind Mr. Krgovic that the form of the question is

 3     important because we've seen before witnesses take it for granted that

 4     what counsel says is a fact, is a fact and may agree to it.  And so I --

 5     I would ask that the questions are phrased properly as questions and not

 6     as assertions of fact.

 7             JUDGE HALL:  Thank you, Ms. Korner.  I don't know that we need

 8     add anything.  It is ...

 9                           [Trial Chamber confers]

10             JUDGE HALL:  A question should never be promised -- premised on

11     facts not in evidence or, I suppose, by extension, in respect of which

12     the party raising it is in no position to lead evidence at some future

13     point.  So parties should remember that.

14             Could we have the blinds down so the witness may be escorted back

15     to the stand.

16                           [The witness takes the stand]

17             JUDGE HALL:  Mr. Witness, I may have explained to you on a

18     previous occasion that the nature of a trial involves not only receiving

19     testimony from a witness but often entails having to deal with procedural

20     issues.  So to the extent that you were inconvenienced by being kept

21     waiting for longer than you expected is one of those unavoidable

22     incidents of a trial.

23             Mr. Krgovic, you may continue.

24             MR. KRGOVIC: [Interpretation]

25        Q.   Sir, we broke off while we were discussing the town defence

Page 16268

 1     command.  You said that, if I understood you correctly, the OTP had shown

 2     you a document coming from the 19th Partisan Brigade.

 3             MR. KRGOVIC: [Interpretation] Could we please have 2D02-1954.

 4        Q.   Is this the document you were shown by the Prosecution?

 5        A.   Yes.

 6        Q.   This order by the commander, we can see that the town of

 7     Donji Vakuf command was being established, consisting of, and we see who

 8     were in the command.  Jovetic Milan, reserve captain.  And then

 9     Bosko Savkovic, this is what I am interested in, who has been

10     conscripted, is appointed chief of the Donji Vakuf public security

11     station.  Also a council of the Donji Vakuf municipality is also being

12     appointed.

13             MR. KRGOVIC: [Interpretation] Could we please have the following

14     page of the document presented on the screen.

15        Q.   Under 3, or in item 3 of this order, the organs for state

16     administration are being formed, including the judiciary, the education

17     staff, then economic organs.

18             MR. KRGOVIC: [Interpretation] Could we please have the following

19     page of the document.

20        Q.   We can see organs for public utilities are formed for special

21     functions and information of the population.

22             MR. KRGOVIC: [Interpretation] And could we now please have the

23     last page of the document on the screen.

24        Q.   Item 4, the commander, this lieutenant-colonel, appoints the

25     president and judge of the municipal misdemeanour court,

Page 16269

 1     Mr. Miodrag Jandric.

 2             And 5, he appoints for the commander of the Donji Vakuf public

 3     security station, I think the proper name is Sekula Sisic, who is captain

 4     first class, and both his deputy and his assistant.

 5             In my understanding of this order, the commander of this military

 6     unit appoints or puts under control all elements of the authorities in

 7     this municipality.  Do you agree with me?

 8        A.   I don't know this unit commander.  I wouldn't have been such a

 9     unit commander.  It's obvious that he has taken up this right that is not

10     his.  I don't know on the basis of what had this gentleman drafted the

11     document.

12             Also, the stamp verifying the document, authorising the document,

13     is illegal, because on the 12th of May, VRS was established, and stamps

14     of the VRS were the only legitimate stamps.

15             We can see here that the stamp of the command of the

16     19th Partisan Brigade, and the SFRY coat of arms.  I cannot comment this

17     document because this seems like an improvisation to me.  I wouldn't have

18     drafted it this way, that's for sure.

19        Q.   But you will agree with me that this order, at least based on

20     what's in the document, this order has -- has its effect of establishing

21     the entire authorities of the municipality.

22        A.   I cannot comment on this document.  I haven't drafted it.  I

23     haven't ordered anyone to draft it.  During the proofing when I was shown

24     this document, there was a confusion about the term "Vakuf."  There was

25     confusion between Skender Vakuf and Donji Vakuf.  The two towns are

Page 16270

 1     150 kilometres away from each other.  But, no, I cannot comment on this

 2     document.

 3        Q.   Let us --

 4             MS. KORNER:  Just for one moment -- would Your Honours hear me

 5     for one moment.

 6             Your Honours, I'm a little bit concerned about this question of

 7     being shown things by proofing which either not been shown or shown them.

 8     This document was not shown to this witness during any proofing.  It is

 9     not part of any of our documents.  It may have been shown to him at an

10     earlier stage, when he was interviewed.  But it certainly wasn't shown to

11     him during proofing.

12             MR. KRGOVIC: [Interpretation] I only asked this witness on the

13     basis of his claim that he was shown the document during his contacts

14     with the Prosecution.  I have no position on that.  I heard him say that,

15     and I spoke about the document in such a way.

16             THE INTERPRETER:  Microphone, please.

17             MR. KRGOVIC: [Interpretation] I apologise.

18        Q.   You spoke about discussions relating to disarmament of the Muslim

19     formations in Vecici on their departure from the area, after they have

20     done that and so on.  Have the Muslim and Croat formations eventually

21     handed over their weapons and left the area?

10     that took place at Koricanske Stijene.

11             MR. KRGOVIC: [Interpretation] Can we please have P609 put up on

12     the screen.

13             I apologise, I was looking for a different document, it seems.

14             Just a moment, Your Honours, please.

15             When the witness was discussing the telegram, I noted down this

16     number, 609, but it seems that it's a different document that I'm looking

17     for.  Just a moment.

12   (redacted)

13             I sent it to two different addressees, to the corps, but also to

14     the CSB.

15        Q.   But you have no knowledge of whether the CSB received your

16     telegram or was it informed by the corps?

17        A.   No.  I didn't get any reply to this.

18        Q.   You said that you didn't have any contacts with the CSB in

19     relation to this event.  Isn't that what you are saying?

20        A.   Yes, that's right.

21   (redacted)

22   (redacted)

23   (redacted)

24   (redacted)

25   (redacted)

Page 16273

 1     (redacted).  I went to the site on the very same day, when I -- I was,

 2     that day, in Banja Luka, at the briefing, and at about 2300 hours,

 3     roughly, I went to the site where I couldn't see very much, but one could

 4     smell the smells coming from the abyss, and I could also see on the

 5     location there traces of blood, bullet casings, and I went back to the

 6     command --

12   (redacted)

13   (redacted)

14   (redacted)

15   (redacted)

16   (redacted)

17   (redacted)

18             Yes, they were men.

19        Q.   So you yourself and those who were with you and went down there

20     to get a closer look did not observe any bodies of women or children

21     among them, did you?

22        A.   There is one thing that I have to explain.

23             At one point, I noticed a group of civilians approaching the

24     victims.  They were civilians from a nearby village who wanted to see if

25     there were any valuables to be had.  They started rummaging through the

Page 16274

 1     pockets of the victims.  I called to them, standing on the top of the

 2     ridge, shooing them away, in fact.  But they were nearby locals.  They

 3     were not connected to the individuals who were dead.

 4        Q.   Precisely my point.  It's not that there were bodies of women and

 5     children among the dead men there; is that right?

 1             The platoon of scouts did not come across any women or children.

 2     Instead, they found six seriously wounded individuals who were evacuated

 3     by the medical corps to the medical station in Knezevo.  Therefore,

 4     neither the scouts who conducted the search, nor the medical team which

 5     evacuated the wounded, noticed or observed anyone else than the six

 6     wounded who were taken care of.

17             JUDGE DELVOIE:  Mr. Witness.  Mr. Witness?

18             THE WITNESS: [Interpretation] Yes, yes, I'm listening.

19             JUDGE DELVOIE:  You were at the scene the day itself or the day

20     after the massacre happened, right?

21             And ...

22                           [Trial Chamber and Registrar confer]

23             JUDGE DELVOIE:  And you said first time you were there you

24     couldn't see much but you could smell what was coming from down the --

25     the cliff.  You, as a military man, must have seen and -- and been in the

Page 16276

 1     presence of dead men on other occasions.  Is -- is there a smell coming

 2     from dead bodies that fresh?  Was that the smell of rotting bodies, and

 3     could that happen in so -- so little time?

 4             THE WITNESS: [Interpretation] Unfortunately, as a soldier, I have

 5     to tell you that I experienced all sorts of odours in my time, and I can

 6     recognise them.

10             THE REGISTRAR:  We're back in open session, Your Honours.

11                           [Trial Chamber confers]

12             JUDGE HARHOFF:  What the Chamber suggests is the following.  That

13     we will adjourn now and we will then allow the time to the parties that

14     they need to sort this out.  30 minutes is -- is perhaps not long enough

15     for you to reach some sort of an agreement.  So if you want to take 40 or

16     even 45 minutes, then feel free to do so.

17             The Chamber is minded to give off Tuesday as well, if -- if there

18     is any possibility that by the end of Tuesday some sort of agreement can

19     be reached about this.  Obviously if the Defence will say that you need

20     more time than Tuesday, that it will not be possible for you to reach an

21     agreement by Tuesday, then we'll have to consider perhaps also taking

22     Wednesday --

23             MS. KORNER:  Your Honour, we're just going to go ahead.  If we

24     haven't been told on Tuesday, we'll just go ahead and call the witnesses,

25     and that's an end to it.

Page 16285

 1             Can I just raise one question.  Your Honours, it is also

 2     important to know because the witness who is due to start some time

 3     tomorrow, but there's lengthy examination-in-chief and equally lengthy

 4     cross, so he is likely to go over to -- not to Friday but to next week,

 5     because tomorrow is Thursday, and this witness is going to go into

 6     tomorrow, clearly.

 7             So what we will say is, if -- so we raise it now, that he is

 8     allowed to go back home between Friday and -- if we adjourn on the

 9     Tuesday as well and come back on the Wednesday.  Because I think it would

10     be a bit much to keep -- not to mention the expense to keep him here

11     between Friday and Wednesday even though is he in the middle of

12     examination or cross-examination.

13             JUDGE HARHOFF:  Very well.

14             We will adjourn now and ask the parties to let us know as soon as

15     you have come to some sort of a conclusion.

16                           --- Recess taken at 12.11 p.m.

17                           --- On resuming at 1.02 p.m.

18             MS. KORNER:  Your Honours, the discussions in the extended break

19     have proved to a certain extent productive.

20             The Defence would like to have not only Tuesday but Wednesday

21     off.  With one caveat and some reluctance the Prosecution is prepared to

22     agree, subject, of course, to Your Honours' agreement, on the basis that

23     we get by Wednesday the definitive and final answer on what the Defence

24     are prepared to stipulate to in respect of adjudicated facts.  The caveat

25     we have is this.  That with respect of the witnesses lined up for next

Page 16286

 1     week, the three witnesses who relate to adjudicated facts, the Defence

 2     must tell us by the close of the court's sitting this Friday, because

 3     Monday is a holiday and we have no opportunity otherwise to tell VWS to

 4     stand people down if that's what's required, as to whether the

 5     adjudicated facts to which these witnesses are going speak will be

 6     stipulated to.  So, the three witnesses are ST-225, ST-050, ST-241.

 7     Notification by Friday, close of court's sitting, so quarter to 2.00,

 8     whether the adjudicated facts to which they will speak will be stipulated

 9     to.

10             As regards the rest, Your Honours, with some hesitation, we will

11     accede to, as I say, if Your Honours agree to having Wednesday off,

12     provided that's it and we do finally get the definitive answer.

13             JUDGE HALL:  Thank you.

14             On the face of it, Ms. Korner's request does not seem

15     unreasonable.  Does that present -- does Friday, close of business,

16     present an insurmountable problem?

17             MR. ZECEVIC:  Your Honours, it doesn't, because we have agreed

18     with Ms. Korner.  We understand the situation the OTP is finding

19     themselves concerning the witnesses for the next week.  So we agreed that

20     we will provide the -- our answer for the three witnesses that have to

21     come -- that are scheduled to come next week by Friday, end of the court

22     sitting.

23             And for the rest, for all others, for all other witnesses we

24     agree that -- that we will provide our definitive answer by end of

25     Wednesday.  Thank you.

 1             JUDGE HALL:  Mr. Krgovic.

 2             MR. KRGOVIC:  Yes, Your Honour, I can confirm that this is the

 3     joint position of both Defence.

 4             JUDGE HALL:  Thank you.

 5                           [Trial Chamber confers]

 6             JUDGE HALL:  So the Chamber approves the joint proposal of

 7     counsel in that regard, and the -- the -- the two days next week will be

 8     used to finalise these matters.  And we're grateful to counsel for the

 9     effort that they have put in to trying to arrive at a resolution of this

10     matter.

11             MR. ZECEVIC:  We are grateful to Your Honours for understanding.

12     Thank you.

13             MS. KORNER:  Your Honours, just one final thing.  The filing that

14     Your Honours ordered for the earlier agreement to adjudicated facts, we

15     suggest, really, this is a Defence filing, because it's for them to say

16     exactly what they agree.  So, obviously we'll -- when they've filed

17     their -- if -- their motion on that, then we'll accede to it.  Or it can

18     be a joint filing.  But, in any event, we don't want to start writing

19     things down, sending it back to the Defence who've decided what they'll

20     accept, so they ought to file the basic motion.

21                           [Trial Chamber and Legal Officer confer]

22             JUDGE HALL:  So the only thing that we need add to Ms. Korner's

23     observation is that we suppose that it would be practical for the Defence

24     to prepare the first draft and what we would expect to receive is a

25     joint -- the product of your joint efforts.  What we are trying to avoid

Page 16288

 1     is a back and forth between counsel in terms of what, in fact, is

 2     stipulated.

 3             MS. KORNER:  Is Your Honour saying that we should wait now

 4     until -- so we shouldn't file this Friday but wait until everything else

 5     has been finished?

 6             Well, then you're going to have bits and pieces.

 7             JUDGE DELVOIE:  Well, what we -- what we -- what is already in

 8     agreement would help us in preparing the outstanding motions, so that we

 9     can work on them on -- on -- on Tuesday and Wednesday when we are out of

10     court.

11             MS. KORNER:  Yes, Your Honour.  But none of what has already

12     previously been agreed has any affect on any of the outstanding motions,

13     at all.

14                           [Trial Chamber and Legal Officer confer]

15             JUDGE DELVOIE:  The problem is we don't know what has been

16     agreed, so -- so if you say -- if you say it has nothing to do with the

17     outstanding motions, we take your word for it.  But --

18             MS. KORNER:  All right.

19             JUDGE DELVOIE:  -- it would be helpful if we could know --

20             MS. KORNER:  Yes.

21             JUDGE DELVOIE:  -- what --

22             MS. KORNER:  All right.  Your Honours, what we are simply saying

23     is, we'll await the Defence list, and then we'll -- and we'll file a

24     joint motion.  Basically we're saying, we're sick to death of drafting

25     motions.  This is the Defence time.

 2             JUDGE HALL:  Yes.  So could we have the blinds down so that the

 3     witness could be escorted back to the stand.

 4                           [The witness takes the stand]

 5             JUDGE HALL:  Thank you, sir.  You may be seated.

 6             MR. KRGOVIC: [Interpretation]

 7        Q.   Sir, we stopped when we were discussing the delegation arriving

 8     from Banja Luka.

 9             You said that they visited there to tour the corridor --

10             JUDGE HALL:  Excuse me, Mr. Krgovic.  I'm reminded by the

11     Court Officer that we -- when we adjourned we were in private session.

12     Should we remain so?

13             MR. KRGOVIC:  Could we go to private session for a moment.

17             THE REGISTRAR:  We're in open session, Your Honours.

18             THE WITNESS: [Interpretation] Can I take my belongings?  Is that

19     business done or should I leave them here?

20             JUDGE HALL:  I believe the Prosecution is through with them and

21     they would return them to the Registry so they could be given back to

22     you.  I believe that's the position.

23             MS. KORNER:  Your Honours, they've been given back to him.  They

24     were given back this morning.

25             JUDGE HALL:  Oh, I'm sorry, I thought he meant the documents that

Page 16303

 1     we were dealing with yesterday.  The -- your other belongings, because

 2     the courtroom is used for other purposes, the -- the Court Officers would

 3     assist you with them.  The ushers would assist you with them.

 9     65 ter 10520 that was uploaded -- that had been marked for

10     identification.  It has, thanks to the OTP, now been -- since been

11     uploaded and may -- the MFI qualification may be removed.

12                           [Trial Chamber confers]

13             JUDGE HALL:  We take the adjournment to 9.00 tomorrow morning.

14                            --- Whereupon the hearing adjourned at 1.50 p.m.,

15                           to be reconvened on Thursday, the 21st day of

16                           October, 2010, at 9.00 a.m.
