Summary/Abstract: During the war against Bosnia and Herzegovina (1992 – 1995), the municipality of Sanski Most was occupied by the forces of the Army of the Republika Srpska (VRS), from the spring of 1992 until October 10, 1995. Part of the non-Serb population was forced to leave the city, but a part of Bosniaks and Croats remained in the city during the war, so they were often mistreated, tortured, humiliated, forced to dig trenches and do forced labor. When it comes to trials for war crimes committed in the area of Sanski Most, it should be pointed out that they were tried in several courts: the Cantonal Court in Bihać, the Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina, but also in the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY), and in the High Court for war crimes in Belgrade.
