Oric Video to Remain as Evidence

(TU No 440, 17-Feb-06)
The defence complained that the interview with Oric, which was filmed by investigators from the Office of the Prosecutor in Sarajevo in April and May 2001, is unreliable because of translation flaws and inaccuracies in the English transcript. However, trial judges ruled last week that the video would still be included in the case against the accused.

Oric is charged with leading Bosnian Muslim combatants in attacks on over 50 Serb villages in eastern Bosnia in 1992 and 1993.

The prosecution and defence are due to present their closing arguments between April 3 and 7.
