Serbia charges 6 persons suspected of helping war crimes indictee Stojan Zupljanin

The Serbian War Crimes Prosecutor has filed an indictment against six individuals suspected of helping war crimes indictee Stojan Zupljanin evade justice.

Deputy War Crimes Prosecutor Bruno Vekaric said that the indictment covered the period from 2002 to June 2008, when Zupljanin was arrested in Pancevo, near Belgrade and transferred to the UN war crimes tribunal in the Hague.

Zupljanin, a Bosnian Serb wartime official, is currently on trial at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, ICTY, on charges of persecution, murder, torture, and other crimes against Bosnian Muslims and Croats near Banja Luka.

Vekaric explained that the prosecution had a map which showed the 26 locations where the suspects allegedly helped Zupljanin hide.
