Residents of Bileca made Monument to Draza Mihailovic

On June 1st, residents of Bileca made a monument to General Dragoljub Draza Mihailovic, condemned and shot in 1946 for war crimes and cooperation with the occupying authorities.

The work of sculptor Milivoje Bokic was set up in the Ravnogorski Park.

After the Second World War, the new communist authorities of arrested Mihajlovic and sentenced to death for war crimes.

Local authorities in the eastern Herzegovina town of Bileca have decided to remove a monument to the Partisans, erected after the Second World War, and set up a new, dedicated to the Chetniks in his place.

Earlier, the Association for Social Research and Communication (UDIK) expressed regret and deep concern about the rise of another monument to the war criminal Mihailovic.

The UDIK points out that Bosniaks and Croats were killed on two occasions throughout Bosnia and Herzegovina under the symbols of Mihailovic, in World War II and in the last war against Bosnia and Herzegovina.
