Bosnian Judiciary Shields Muslim War Criminals from Due Processes

As long as Bosnias War Crimes Prosecution is dominated by David Schwendiman [PDF], not a single Bosnian Muslim general will find himself in the docket, regardless of the evidence proving their responsibility for war crimes committed by the Bosnian Muslim forces against the Serb population, Devad Galijaević, member of the South-Eastern Europes Expert Team for the War Against Terrorism and Organized Crime, told Banja Luka daily Fokus.
Born into the Muslim faith, former mayor of Maglaj Municipality in Bosnia and Herzegovina Galijaević is one of the very few Bosnian Muslims willing to openly speak about the wide scale war crimes committed by the Izetbegovićs troops in former Yugoslavia.
Author of three books, including The Era of Terrorism in Bosnia and Hercegovina, Galijaević asserts that Alija Izetbegovićs Islamic Declaration laid the cornerstone for the mujahidin to come to wartime and postwar Bosnia and Herzegovina.
He stresses that the current Islamic political leadership of Bosnia are the same people who during the war sent pleas to the Taliban and other Islamic regimes to send their best jihad fighters to Bosnia to fight the Christians. After the war has ended, the response of these leaders to anyone who would bring up the fact of war crimes committed by the Bosnian Muslims is that only the foreign fighters are responsible for war crimes on the Muslim side and none of the natives.
This, says Galijaević, couldnt be further from the truth.
Mountain of Evidence of Atif Dudakovićs Atrocities Insufficient to Get him Before the Court
Speaking to Fokus reporter, Galijaević said that commander of the Fifth Corps of the Bosnian Muslim army, general Atif Dudaković is the prime example of the double standards practiced by the Bosnian Muslim leadership and foreign officials running Bosnian war crimes prosecution department.
Dudaković is accused of war crimes committed in the region of the municipalities of Bihać, Sanski Most, Bosanski Petrovac and Prijedor, and (together with Alija Izetbegović, Croat war leader Franjo Tuđman and Croat general Ante Gotovina) for war crimes committed during the joint Croat-Muslim ethnic cleansing Operation Storm in 1995, on the territory of the municipalities of Jajince, ipovo, Mrkonjić Grad and parts of the municipalities of Banja Luka, Ključ and Drvar.
Izetbegovićs general, trumpeted as a revered wartime commander, stands accused of grievous war crimes which include wanton destruction of Serb-populated villages, execution of the civilians, murder of the Bosnian Muslim negotiators (non-allied with Izetbegovićs war party) and torture and execution of the POWs (on a number of occasions, many of which have been videotaped and preserved on some 30 DVDs).
1991 Sarajevo Muslim magazine announcing jihad to Bosnian non-Muslims
Sarajevo regime announced its planned jihad against the Serb population of Bosnia well ahead of the war, in October 1991: Cover of the New Vox magazine showing rosy-cheeked Bosnian Muslim fascist with severed heads of prominent Serbs (his boot on severed head of President Radovan Karadić), with titles Handzar [SS Waffen] Division Ready (on the left) and The Fourth Reich is Coming: Welcome!
He is also responsible of running one of the Bosnian death camps for Bosnian Serbs, Croats and Muslims non-allied with Izetbegovićs jihadists, where prisoners were regularly tortured, mutilated and executed.
NATO court in Hague was not interested in processing high ranking Bosnian Muslim wartime commander for the crimes committed by one of the favored parties in Yugoslav civil wars. As for the Bosnian war crimes prosecution, even as the evidence of Dudakovićs atrocities kept piling up, it limited itself to indicting Dudakovićs subordinate in 2007 based on the same video recordings that are incriminating Dudaković but not his savage commander. Instead, Sarajevo prosecution allegedly opened an investigation of Dudakovićs crimes, which hasnt moved an inch in more than two years, leaving Dudaković free to roam Bosnia and enjoy his life of impunity.
Bosnian Muslim Commander in Charge of El Mujahideen Savages Still Free
In addition to Dudaković, the case of general Sakib Mahmuljin, wartime commander of the Third Corps of Bosnian Muslim army which incorporated the atrocious El Mujahideen unit (El Mujahid, in some sources) also remains open, Galijaević said, adding the Hague Tribunal had established that El Mujahideen unit, comprised of thousands of foreign mercenaries and responsible for countless atrocities against the Serb and Croat population in Bosnia and Herzegovina, was under direct command and control of the Bosnian Muslim Third Corps, led by Mahmuljin.
In its verdict to Enver Hadihasanović and Amir Kubura, the Hague Tribunal determined El Mujahideen unit was an integral part of the Bosnian Muslim army from 13 September 1993. Since then, the El Mujahideen unit was a legal military formation in the composition of the Bosnian Muslim army, operating within its Third Corps. This implies full responsibility of Sakib Mahmuljin for all the war crimes committed by this unit, some of which were documented in the verdict issued to Rasim Delić [wartime commander of Main Staff of the Bosnian Muslim army], Galijaević said.
He added that Internal Affairs Ministry of the Serbian Republic in Bosnia processed a number of cases in which Sakib Mahmuljins direct responsibility for these atrocities was proven beyond the reasonable doubt.
According to Galijaević, the key person responsible for freezing the processing of war crimes committed by the Bosnian Muslims is David Schwendiman, former Utah Assistant United States Attorney, currently employed at Sarajevo War Crimes Prosecution Department.
NATO Court Declined to Process High Ranking Bosnian Muslim War Criminals…
British Lord Lies Under Oath
Paddy Ashdown lying under oath
Lord Paddy Ashdown cool as a cucumber while lying under oath and presenting falsified evidence.
If it wasn’t for the independent sources of information most of the world would never have a chance to learn the truth about anything, especially when high NATO representatives embarrass themselves beyond repair by being caught in series of lies, such as British lord Paddy Ashdown while testifying against late President Milosevic in the Kangaroo Court in Hague.
Not surprisingly, highly acclaimed BBC reporters were satisfied to limit their reporting to singing praises to his lying lordship, while completely ignoring the other, much more important half of the story — the part in which Ashdown’s testimony was ripped into shreds. On the other hand, the sources that don’t get paid to inform us, went ahead with the entire report, including the proof of Ashdown’s perjury.
In short, Paddy Ashdown testified that he was no less than an eyewitness to Serbian atrocities in Kosovo strife. While under oath he went on to tell that, at the time Serbian army fought with terrorist KLA in Kosovo (during NATO bombardment of Serbia), he was in village Gegaj in Albania, near Serbian Kosovo border, from where he saw, with his own eyes, Serbian troops burning villages, killing everyone in their way, including the scores of Albanian civilians. A devastating testimony indeed, when no other than a high NATO official, a British lord, diplomat and a supposed gentleman swears he was an eyewitness to Serbian war crimes.
However, when President Milosevic’s defense started, among his witnesses was General Bozidar Delic, Serbian war hero whose unit was fighting KLA in Kosovo at the time Ashdown claims he saw what he saw. This in itself wouldn’t be the problem for Ashdown (your word against mine is how the Hague Inquisition basically operates), except for the fact that General Delic also happens to be a topography expert (a professor of topography at the Military Academy, to be exact). With few maps, markers and a plain ruler, General Delic has shattered Ashdown’s testimony, proving without a doubt his lordship unashamedly lied on a witness stand and could not have seen any of what he says he saw.
Since the following excerpt from an interview with General Delic, as far as I know, isn’t available in English, I have translated the part that pertains to revealing abominable lies of Paddy Ashdown, NATO, KFOR and UNMIK stationed in Kosovo and the lies of the Hague Inquisition. The interviewer is Boris Aleksic. Enjoy!
General, you have recently testified in The Hague. You have prepared ample documentation about crimes committed on Serbs in Kosovo and Metohija.
I knew I would testify in The Hague back in 2002, because that was the first time Mr. Milosevic’s assistants contacted me, asking if I would be willing to testify about what went on before and during NATO’s aggression on our country in my zone of responsibility. I confirmed that I will testify. Meanwhile, the prosecution called me to testify about the crimes of the so-called UCK (KLA). The Army Headquarters and the Ministry of Defense gave their consent and I started preparing the documentation for my testimony with pleasure. I was preparing to testify as an expert witness for the prosecution against terrorist KLA from the end of 2002 and during the entire year of 2003. I have collected around 3,000 pages of documents, the complete organizational/formation structure of terrorists‘ command and units up from battalion level in the sectors of Pastrik and Dukadjini.
Towards the end of April 2005 all of the documents were properly classified and organized and I was ready. On June 12 I went to Hague as the witness for Mr. Milosevic’s defense and testified for the first time on July 17, 2005 until the summer break. In the meantime Mr. Seselj testified, which I hoped for, since I knew the prosecution will make an effort to try to discredit me with some new details, and that’s exactly what happened. On the second occasion I spent 19 days in Hague, testifying during 4 days. In total, I spent 63 days in Hague.
Your testimony has attracted massive interest in public and it is still the subject of conversation. You have used the scientific method to prove that prosecution and Tribunal are using falsified evidence and false witnesses. After your testimony Paddy Ashdown was replaced at the position of the EU’s High Representative for Bosnia and Herzegovina. You have cancelled out Ashdown’s testimony about the alleged crimes which, according to the prosecution, Serbian forces committed in Kosovo and Metohija, and which Ashdown supposedly saw looking through the mountains and hundred-year old forests?
From his position Ashdown supposedly saw the village Junik. Yet, whoever has the most basic knowledge about that area knows Ashdown’s claims are entirely impossible. Junik mountains are exceeding the Kosovo and Metohija territory by the few hundred meters, while village Junik is 7 kilometers further away, below those mountains.
How did the prosecution react?
They immediately requested detailed explanation. I told them that I was born there and that I taught topography at the [Military] Academy. Than they asked me to present the disputed area graphically, with visibility zones clearly marked. They wanted me to finish everything during the twenty-minute break. Since I had no maps and no tools, I had to tell them I cannot finish the task sooner than by the next day. I naively believed I was helping them, but the prosecution was only looking for ways to discredit me.
During the break they brought some 50 maps. There were all sorts of them – black and white, in color, originals and copies. After examining their maps I told them neither one is good. They were gloating over my conclusion, since now they could say they are good to everyone else, except for you. I replied that all of the maps are lacking the basic information which any barely decent map has to have, like ratios for example. Those are the most basic, elementary rules of topography. The maps also didn’t have any topographic shapes marked either, and so on.
General Bozidar Delic, a war hero and a topography expert who thrashed Ashdown’s testimony in The Hague.
Finally, I picked two maps. I asked for a ruler and markers so I could do what was requested in the afternoon.
You are saying that Tribunal, which has the most technologically advanced equipment and which spends millions of dollars annually, gave you the maps without information about ratios and without topographic shapes? And you didn’t even get to use a computer for the work they requested from you?
I was given the most modest implements only. But even that was sufficient. I marked everything visible from the point given by Ashdown, from Albania. In the meantime, they informed me about the new statement by Ashdown, according to which, this time around, he was further to the south.
He changed his statement?
Yes, and that won’t be the only time. I marked the visible areas on the map. The next day I took it to the tribunal telling them I’m done, although the maps I had to work with were rather poor. [Prosecutor] Nice was enraged and literally ripped the maps out of my hands.
One has to wonder about the country in which State Prosecutor rips evidence out of witness‘ or expert’s hands. Was apparently calm Nice showing his true nature?
I thought the gesture is illustrative — it showed the amount of respect they had for me. When I told them the maps I was given do not contain most of what they should, but I have finished my work anyway, he simply ripped them out of my hands. He was eager to show my work to ..

Dieser Kriegsverbrecher sollte nicht hier geduldet werden
TV zeigt neue Kriegsverbrechen von bosnischen Moslems an Serben
Kommandant ordnete Tötung, Zerstörung von Dörfern und Vergewaltigungen an
Belgrad/Banja Luka – Der in Banja Luka ansässige TV-Sender „ATV“ hat am heutigen Mittwoch neue Aufnahmen von Kriegsverbrechen an Serben ausgestrahlt. Dabei ist zu sehen, wie Ramiz Delalic, ein Kommandant der bosniakischen (moslemischen) Armee, die Tötung von Serben, Vergewaltigungen und die Zerstörung von Dörfern anordnet, berichteten Medien in Belgrad und Banja Luka.
„Tötet alles, was ihr vor euch findet. Ich erlaube und ordne es an, dass der Feind mit allen Mitteln zerstört wird – mit Messern, Bomben, Hacken, Zähnen“, hört man Delalic demnach sagen. Auf die Frage eines Soldaten, ob sie auch vergewaltigen dürften, soll Delalic sagen: „Ihr habt das Recht auf alles“. Die Aufzeichnung stammt vom 16. April 1995. Ein bosnischer Moslem erzählt in dieser Dokumentation von grauenhaften Vergewaltigungen und anderen Kriegsverbrechen.
Die Aufforderung zu Kriegsverbrechen richtete sich nicht nur gegen Serben, sondern auch gegen die Kämpfer von Fikret Abdic, dessen Einheiten gegen die Regierungstruppen des bosnischen Ex-Präsidenten Alija Izetbegovic kämpften. Delalic war Kommandant der 503. Brigade des Fünften Korps der Armee Bosnien-Herzegowinas. Der Fünfte Korps wird für viele Kriegsverbrechen verantwortlich gemacht.
Serbische Sender hatten bereits Anfang August Videos gezeigt, auf denen Kriegsverbrechen von bosnischen Moslems an Serben zu sehen sind. Unter anderem war der Kriegskommandant des bosniakischen Fünften Korps, General Ante Dudakovic, zu sehen und zu hören, wie er seinen Soldaten das Niederbrennen serbischer Dörfer im Westen Bosniens anordnete.
Delalic wurde bereits früher mit Kriegsverbrechen in Verbindung gebracht, etwa in der Ortschaft Grabovica bei Mostar. Im September 1993 wurden dort 33 kroatische Dorfbewohner, darunter Frauen, Kinder und ältere Menschen, von bosniakischen Truppen ermordet. Eine der beteiligten Einheiten soll unter seinem Kommando gestanden sein.
Delalic wurde im Frühjahr dieses Jahres in Sarajevo festgenommen. Bereits vor zwei Jahren wurde er wegen der Ermordung eines serbischen Hochzeitgasts im unmittelbaren Stadtzentrum von Sarajevo am 1. März 1992 angeklagt. Nikola Gardovic, der Vater des Bräutigams, wurde im historischen Stadtviertel Bascarsija aus nächster Nähe von Delalic erschossen, weil er sich weigerte, die von ihm getragene serbische Flagge abzugeben. Nach diesem Mord kam es in Bosnien zu ersten ethnisch motivierten Gewalttaten. In Sarajevo wurden nach der Ermordung von Gardovic erste Barrikaden errichtet. Dieser Mord wird von vielen Serben als Beginn des Krieges in Bosnien-Herzegowina (1992-1995) betrachtet. (APA)
