Summary/Abstract: The publication “War Crimes in Milići and Vlasenica – Verdicts” documents three cases brought before the Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina for crimes committed in the pre-war municipality of Vlasenica. The Court sentenced Predrag Bastah to 22 years and Goran Višković to 18 years imprisonment, while Dragan Marinković was sentenced to 8 years imprisonment for war crimes in the municipality of Milići. According to the Institute for Missing Persons of Bosnia and Herzegovina, 955 Bosniak victims went missing in the municipalities of Vlasenica and Milići between 1992 and 1995. These persons disappeared as a result of war crimes, but they are not related to the fall of protected zones, i.e. to the genocide committed in July 1995. The largest mass grave found in the Vlasenica area is the Ogradica mass grave, from which 232 remains of victims from the previous war were exhumed in 2003, and the largest mass grave in the Milići municipality is the Zaklopača mass grave, from which 81 remains were exhumed. At the end of this book is a list of identified persons from the municipalities of Vlasenica and Milići who disappeared in the period from 1992 to 1995. The data were taken from the Institute for Missing Persons of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
