On June 1st 2009, Bosniaks paid their final respects to 43 civilian victims from Zvornik. More than 5000 people attended the funeral. So far, 617 victims have already been DNA identified and laid to rest in Gornja Kalesija cemetery. In 1992, Serbs massacred 1,573 Bosniaks in Zvornik.

Bosnian Muslim woman, Šeća Delić, said goodbyes to her two sons – Zijad and Sead.

“We have seen with our hearts and felt with our souls what they had done to us. Sead was only 17 years old. He was attending a school. I begged the Serbs to let him go. They knew he was only a student. Our Serb neighbours from nearby villages came and took my sons. They told me: ‘Go home. Nothing will happen to your sons.’ They also took my husband, my father in law, 19 members of our family. They killed them all,” said Šeća.

The remains of 70 more bodies of the Zvornik massacre victims are located in the Tuzla morgue. They are awaiting DNA identification. Ahmet Grahić, president of the NGO association – Families of Prisoners and Missing Persons from Zvornik municipality – invited relatives of the victims to come forward and provide blood. Only this way, the DNA identification process can be expedited.

In addition to the funeral of 43 Zvornik massacre victims, another 6 victims from the Cikotska Rijeka (Vlasenica) mass grave have been DNA identified. On Monday, their relatives were told to visit the local morgue in Tuzla. All victims were killed on 07.06.1992 in Šadići. The youngest victim was 11 year old girl – Senada Huric.

The list of latest DNA identified victims from Cikotska Rijeka mass grave include: (1.) Hurić (Murat) Alija, born 1926. (2.) Hurić (Halil) Suljo, born 1912. (3.) Hurić (Husein) Senahid born 1977. or Hurić (Husein) Senad born 1976. (4.) Huric (Husein) Senada born 1979. (5.) Hurić (Huso) Husein, born 1949. (6.) Hurić (Salko) Fata, born 1923.

    Mladićeve beleške važan dokaz Hagu?
    Zoran Glavonjić, Radio Slobodna Evropa, 5 lipanj 2009

    Suđenje Jovici Stanišiću i Franku Simatoviću, bivšim čelnicima Državne bezbednosti Srbije, u Haškom tribunalu počinje 9. juna, a jedan od novih glavnih dokaza mogao bi da bude ratni dnevnik optuženog Ratka Mladića, koji je sudu dostavljen početkom marta, nakon što su ga srpske vlasti pronašle kod njegove supruge u decembru 2008.

    U nekoliko ratnih i posleratnih beležnica Ratko Mladić je rukom pisanim, ćiriličnim slovima, detaljno opisao sastanke sa nekadašnjim srpskim predsednik Slobodanom Miloševićem, prvim čovekom Državne bezbednosti Srbije Jovicom Stanišićem, kao i vojnim zvaničnicima i drugim tada važnim osobama.

    Iako Mladića jo nema u Hagu, Tužilaštvo tribunala smatra da je dnevnik izuzetno važan jer, kako je navelo u zahtevu sudu da se taj dokument uvrsti u dokaze na suđenju Stanišiću i njegovom nekadašnjem pomoćniku Franku Simatoviću, sadrži detalje koji ilustruju blisku saradnju između učesnika u udruženom zločinačkom poduhvatu, za koji su ova dvojica optuženi.

    Ako je to autentično onda je on to apsolutno namerno ostavio kod supruge i sigurno ga je neko savetovao da to sada uradi.

    Pukovnik u penziji Dragan Vuksić, analitičar koji je i član Foruma za međunarodne odnose, izjavio je za naš program da bi neki detalji iz beležnice zaista mogli da budu značajni za suđenje, ali i ocenio da dnevnik nije pronađen slučajno, već da ga je begunac Ratko Mladić jednostavno učinio dostupnim potrazi i sudu…
