Mortal Remains of War Victims found in Mass Grave in Bratunac


At the sites of Suhi Potok and Bukva, in the municipality of Bratunac, the process of exhumation/clearing up of the terrain has been completed at two separate micro-locations and incomplete mortal remains of at least two persons have been found. The subsequent process will determine the identity of the victims whose remains have been found.

According to the available information, the mortal remains found at these locations presumably belong to the Bosniak victims from the Srebrenica enclave, who had been killed in July of 1995.

The exhumation process has been supervised and coordinated by an Investigator from the Special Department for War Crimes of the Prosecutor’s Office of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The mortal remains have been transferred to the Tuzla Commemorative Center for further forensic processing and identification of the victims whose remains were found.

The exhumation has been conducted with the participation of the officers from the BiH Missing Persons Institute, an expert forensic pathologist, the necessary workers of the Tuzla Commemorative Center, as well as police officers of the Bratunac Police Station.

The Prosecutor’s Office of Bosnia and Herzegovina, together with the institutions involved in the process of tracing and identification of missing persons, continues with its intensive activities aimed at finding missing persons in all parts of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
