A memorial service for Serb victims from the Podrinje region, who were killed by Muslim forces under the command of Naser Oric from Srebrenica during the war in Bosnia-Herzegovina (BiH), was held at the military cemetery in the town of Bratunac, Republika Srpska (RS), on Tuesday.

A memorial service for Serb victims from the Podrinje region, who were killed by Muslim forces under the command of Naser Oric from Srebrenica during the war in Bosnia-Herzegovina (BiH), was held at the military cemetery in the town of Bratunac, Republika Srpska (RS), on Tuesday.

The memorial service was attended by RS President and Prime Minister Milorad Dodik and Aleksandar Dzombic, respectively, as well as by Ambassadors of Serbia Ninoslav Stojadinovic and of Russia Alexander Botsan-Kharchenko.

Also present were representatives of the international community, including Head of the Office of the High Representative (OHR) in Banja Luka Christopher Bennett, representatives of veterans' organizations, as well as delegations of the Serbian Radical Party and the Serbian Progressive Party from Serbia.

During the three and a half years of war in BiH, at least 1,300 Serbs were killed in the eastern BiH municipalities that are part of the Podrinje region or lie next to it - Srebrenica, Zvornik, Milici, Bratunac, Vlasenica and Osmaci, while a total of 3,267 Serbs, mostly civilians, were killed in the wider area of the Central Podrinje and Birac regions.

The commemoration for the Serb victims began early on Tuesday, with a tour of the execution sites in the villages of Biljaca and Sase near Bratinac and a tour of the cemetery in the village of Zalazje near Srebrenica, where a total of 69 Serbs were killed, more than 70 wounded and 22 declared missing in 1992.

Of the 22 missing Serbs from these villages, the remains of ten of them were found in mid-2010. According to local media, the remains were accidentally exhumed by a team of the Missing Persons Institute of Bosnia-Herzegovina. The team were in fact searching for the remains of Bosniak victims but found instead a mass grave of Serbs, whom they recognized as such by the insignia on their uniforms.

The remains have not been identified in a laboratory in the city of Tuzla, eastern BiH, for a whole year, despite the desire of the families of the victims to bury them on the day marking 19 years after their disappearance.

During the commemoration, a documentary film about the suffering of Serb people in the Middle Podrinje titled 'Dossier Srebrenica' was shown, and a round table was held on the suffering of the Serb people of Srebrenica and Bratunac in 1992 and 1993.

The BiH Prosecutor's Office has recently confirmed that investigation were underway against several persons for crimes against Serbs in the Podrinje region, including a case against Naser Oric, who had already been tried in The Hague Tribunal, where he was first sentenced to two years for failure to prevent crimes committed in that region in 1992 and later acquitted of all charges.

A day after thousands of Muslims commemorated their victims, killed by Bosnian Serb forces in Srebrenica in 1995, Bosnian Serbs on Tuesday paid homage to their dead, killed by Muslim forces in the Srebrenica area.

According to Serb sources, 3,267 Serb civilians were killed in the Srebrenica area during 1992-1995 war by Muslim forces under the command of Naser Oric. On 12 July 1992 alone, 69 people were linked in the villages around Srebrenica and 22 were listed as missing.

Too bad SET decided to ignore this solemn observation by Republica Serpska and the Serbian population in their July 14th release.

Yes, the double standards in treating victims of war exists. Serb victims shouldn’t be minimised and it would be refreshing if the SET service was the exception.
