Centre for Civic Education (CCE) is hoping that re-trial of defendants for war crimes at the camp Morinj that begun in 14 March, which will be continued tomorrow before the criminal chamber of judge Milenka Žižić in High Court, will not result with another unperformed indictments that would make justice for victims even more distant and unattainable.
CCE considers that particular attention should be paid to the events in Dubrovnik, where the prisoners from Morinj protested at the border crossing in Karasovici, expressing dissatisfaction with the course of prosecuting those responsible for war crimes in Morinj. They reminded that according to their data only from the Dubrovnik-Neretva County 292 inmates finished in Morinj, and for their torture, even today, six years from the start of the trial in Podgorica, there is no end in sight to the trial. From yesterday’s protest was also requested that the court proceeding should be continued before the Croatian judiciary, due to the fact that the procedure in Montenegro is transformed into a judicial farce, as they claimed.
