22-YEAR SENTENCES CONFIRMED IN ZUPLJANIN AND STANISIC CASE

The Tribunal's Appeals Chamber has confirmed the first instance judgment in the case against former Bosnian Serb police leaders Mico Stanisic and Stojan Zupljanin. The two accused were sentenced to 22 years in prison each by the trial chamber and those sentences have been conformed too. They were convicted of crimes against Bosnian Muslims and Croats, committed between early April and late December 1992. Their defence teams failed to prove that the Danish judge Harhoff was 'biased', although he had been disqualified from the chamber in the Vojislav Seselj case

STANISIC AND ZUPLJANIN WANT PROCEEDINGS TERMINATED, PROSECUTION CALLS FOR STIFFER SENTENCE

At the appellate hearing today, the defense teams of Mico Stanisic and Stojan Zupljanin presented their arguments in support of their demand for the trial judgment to be quashed or for the sentence of 22 years in prison to be reduced. Their demands center on the possibility that the proceedings against them may be terminated because of the 'impression' that one of the judges in their trial chamber, Frederik Harhoff, was 'biased'. The prosecution has rejected those demands and has called for stiffer sentences, in the range from 30 to 40 years

PROSECUTION: STIFFER SENTENCES FOR ‘THOSE WHO SET THE SCENE' FOR CRIMES

In a very interesting comparative analysis, the prosecutor noted that sentences imposed on Stanisic and Zupljanin were only slightly higher or indeed in some cases milder than those meted out to the direct perpetrators of crimes, although Stanisic and Zupljanin were convicted of crimes that resulted in ‘six-figure number of victims’. The prosecutor consequently called their sentences to be increased from 22 to 30 or 40 years in prison. At the end of the appellate hearing the two accused addressed the Appeals Chamber
