GENERAL DJORDJEVIC IN GERMAN PRISON

Theodor Meron, president of the Mechanism for International Criminal Tribunals, has decided that the police general Vlastimir Djordjevic is to serve the rest of his 18-year sentence in Germany. Djordjevic was found guilty of crimes against Kosovo Albanians

GENERAL DJORDJEVIC’S SENTENCE REDUCED BY NINE YEARS

The Appeals Chamber has confirmed the findings related to the existence of the joint criminal enterprise aimed at expelling Albanians from Kosovo in 1999 and the involvement of the accused in it and has granted several grounds of appeal submitted by the police general Vlastimir Djordjevic’s defense. The Appeals Chamber has also granted one of the prosecution’s grounds of appeal, but it nevertheless reduced Djordjevic’s sentence from 27 to 18 years in prison

DEFENSE CLAIMS DJORDJEVIC WAS A BIT PLAYER, PROSECUTION LABELS HIM MASTERMIND

At the appellate hearing, the defense of police General Vlastimir Djordjevic tried to convince the judges that his role in the crimes against Kosovo Albanians was ‘exaggerated’. The prosecution claimed that the Trial Chamber didn’t err when it identified Djordjevic as a key participant in the joint criminal enterprise. The defense called for Djordjevic’s acquittal or a milder sentence while the prosecution urged the judges to sentence him to life for his crimes

DJORDJEVIC CONFESSES HE HID BODIES, BUT PLAYS DOWN HIS RESPONSIBILITY

After he received the translation of the trial judgment, Serbian MUP general Vlastimir Djordjevic admitted he was responsible for burying the bodies of Kosovo Albanians in Batajnica. Djordjevic also admitted he knew the bodies had been found in the Perucac lake. However, Djordjevic denied he had the ‘leading role’ in the bid to cover-up the crime, claiming he ‘was dragged into those terrible events at a later stage’

DJORDJEVIC’S APPEAL TO BE HEARD IN LATE 2012 OR EARLY 2013

The appellate hearing in the case against police general Vlastimir Djordjevic will most likely be held in late 2012 or early 2013, it was announced at a status conference. Djordjevic had no complaints about the conditions of his detention or health

DJORDJEVIC ASKS FOR ACQUITTAL OR A MILDER SENTENCE

The defense contends that the Trial Chamber in its judgment made erroneous conclusions about the joint criminal enterprise that existed on Kosovo in 1999 and about the role of General Vlastimir Djordjevic in it. The defense therefore urges the judges of the Appeals Chamber to either acquit him or to commute his prison sentence. The Trial Chamber sentenced him to 27 years in prison

PROSECUTOR: ’27 YEARS IN PRISON INADEQUATE SENTENCE FOR DJORDJEVIC’

In its notice of appeal against the Trial Chamber’s judgment to police general Vlastimir Djordjevic for Kosovo crimes, the prosecution notes Djordjevic should be convicted of persecution through sexual violence. The prosecution has called for a harsher sentence: instead of 27 years in prison, Djordjevic should get life sentence

GENERAL DJORDJEVIC SENTENCED TO 27 YEARS

Former Serbian deputy interior minister Vlastimir Djordjevic was found guilty of participation in the joint criminal enterprise that resulted in the killing of hundreds of Albanian civilians and the expulsion of thousands of them from Kosovo in 1999. The Trial Chamber found that the accused had full control over the police units that committed the gravest crimes. Djordjevic’s role in the effort to transfer the dead bodies from Kosovo to Serbia was especially highlighted by the Trial Chamber

DEFENSE: ACQUIT GENERAL DJORDJEVIC

After the prosecution called for a sentence between 35 years and life in prison for General Vlastimir Djordjevic, the defense in its closing argument tried to play down the role of the accused in the deportations and murders of Kosovo Albanians in 1999 and the transfer of bodies from Kosovo to Serbia

PROSECUTOR: VLASTIMIR DJORDJEVIC’S GUILT HAS BEEN PROVEN

In his closing argument at the trial for crimes in Kosovo in 1999, the prosecutor noted that the former chief of the Public Security Department in the Serbian police, Vlastimir Djordjevic, played a key part in the effort to cover up the crimes by removing the bodies from the province to several locations in Serbia and had effective control over the police units that deported and murdered Albanian civilians
