Episode 28: Detention Camp Dretelj – place of the untold crime

Justice Report

The April issue of TV Justice magazine brings an overview of the most important trials held before the War Crimes Chamber of the Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina during March.

In the spring of 1992, the former fuel depot of the Yugoslav People’s Army in the village Dretelj, near Capljina, was transformed into a detention camp.

In the course of three years, around three thousand people were held in this depot in cruel and inhumane conditions. Until today, for the suffering which they have survived, three persons have been convicted to a total of 18 years of imprisonment.

Our guest in this month’s edition of TV JUSTICE is Stephen Rapp, U.S. Ambassador for Issues of War Crimes. Also find out what people of Čapljina think about war crimes trials held at the Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
