New War Crime Indictment in Belgrade

The Prosecution in Belgrade has indicted Darko Radivoje, nicknamed Gurgula, for war crimes committed in 1991 in Croatia.

According to the indictment, Radivoje, 41, was a member of the Territorial defence in Tenja, Croatia who fought alongside Serb forces during the war.

Radivoje, a Serbian national, allegedly killed Marjan Pletes, a member of the Croatian Army, on 20 November 1991. Radivoje allegedly took Pletes from the hospital where he had been brought after being wounded with the intention of taking him to the command headquarters in Boboti.

According to the indictment, on the way to Boboti, Radivoje took Pletes out of the ambulance and killed him.

The prosecution in Vukovar indicted Radivoje for the same crime in 2003, but the police were not able to detain him. Croatia issued an international warrant for his arrest in 2004.

The indictment has been sent to the court for confirmation.

The war in Croatia lasted from 1991 to 1995.

According to the latest report from the International Red Cross, 2,436 persons are still considered missing more than a decade after the war ended.
