Serb gets 14 years in war crimes case

July 03, 2009|TIMES WIRE REPORTS

A war crimes court sentenced former Serb policeman Damir Ivankovic to 14 years in jail for crimes against humanity in a massacre of more than 200 Muslims and Croats early in the country's 1992-95 war.

Ivankovic, 39, had confessed to the August 1992 killings in central Bosnia and pledged to testify in future proceedings.

The victims, all men, were forced to kneel by the edge of a ravine and were shot. A dozen managed to survive by tumbling or jumping.
