[JURIST] Two alleged Bosnian war criminals were arrested [Reuters report] Tuesday on orders from the Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina [official website]. Radivoje Lalovic and Soniboj Skiljevic are charged with war crimes allegedly committed during the 1992-1995 siege of Sarajevo [UN backgrounder], when both men worked in the Kula prison. They are accused of committing multiple ethnically-motivated crimes, including unlawful killings, detentions, torture, and inhuman treatment, among others.
Lalovic and Skiljevic are just two of the many charged by the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) [official website] for their alleged involvement in the siege. They are low-level compared to Stanislav Galic [ICTY materials; JURIST report] and Ratko Mladic [ICTY materials; JURIST news archive], who have also been accused of participating in the 43-month-long conflict, during which an estimated 14,000 people were killed.
