Summary/Abstract: The Kazani case has been known to the Sarajevo public since 1993, when the independent magazine Dani wrote about the murders of the non-Bosniak population near Sarajevo. The number of people killed at Kazani pit has never been officially determined, and twenty years later is the subject of frequent debates. The key date on the issue of this war crime is October 26, 1993, when the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MUP) and the Army of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina (ARBIH) organized the operation “Trebević”, with the aim of dealing with “criminals within their own ranks”, against the commander 10th Mountain Brigade Mušan Topalović Caco and the commander of the 9th Motorized Brigade Ramiz Delalić Ćelo. Topalović and his men killed nine MUP members during the arrest, and Topalović himself was dead a few hours after the arrest. The official version says: “killed while trying to escape”.
