SARAJEVO (Tanjug) — The Appeals Chamber of the Court of Bosnia-Herzegovina sentenced Radomir Vuković to 31 years in prison for aiding the committing of genocide in Srebrenica. Zoran Tomić was acquitted.
The final ruling of the court found Vuković guilty for taking part in the execution of more than 1,000 imprisoned men of Bosniak ethnicity at the farming cooperative of Kravica, in the Bratunac municipality.
Tomić was set free for lack of evidence, media in Sarajevo reported.
The first-degree ruling found the two men, former members of the Serb Republic’s special police from Šekovići, guilty of aiding the committing of genocide in Srebrenica in July 1995.
The Appeals Chamber in June 2011 abolished the ruling after appeals lodged by the prosecution and the defense of the accused, and ordered a retrial, which started last September.
The second degree ruling is final and does not allow for new appeals to be lodged.
