At the trial of three Bosnian Serbs for war crimes committed in Visegrad in 1992, a witness said he saw one of the defendants escorting a convoy of civilian captives.
Prosecution witness Jovan Bozic said that in 1992 he was driving a busload of Bosniak civilian captives from the village of Bosanska Jagodina.
He said that the bus eventually joined a column of vehicles heading for Visegrad which was escorted by defendant Milos Pantelic.
The prosecution has charged Pantelic, alongside Predrag Milisavljevic and Ljubomir Tasic, with involvement in several murders, the forced transfer of people and other crimes.
According to the prosecution, Bosniak men who were separated from the convoy were murdered near the Paklenik pit, not far from the eastern Bosnian town of Sokolac.
Only one man managed to flee the executions, the prosecution says.
Pantelic and Milisavljevic are charged with participating in the murder of several dozen Bosniaks near the pit.
The two of them, together with Tasic, are also charged with participating in the forced transfer of over 500 Bosniak civilians from Visegrad.
The indictment says that Milisavljevic and Pantelic committed the offences while they were police reservists in Visegrad and Tasic was serving with the Bosnian Serb Army.
Asked at the Sarajevo court on Tuesday how he recalled that Pantelic was the one escorting the civilian prisoners, the witness said that “a man can remember things he saw”.
Bozic also said that he saw defendant Tasic when he came from Bosanska Jagodina to Visegrad.
The trial will resume on February 26.
