Three former members of the Croatian Defense Council (HVO) were sentenced by a Bosnia and Herzegovina court to 16 years in prison for war crimes committed in Mostar during the country’s 1992-1995 war.
The court statement said that Nadzad Tengak was sentenced to 12 years in prison, Juri Kordic to three years and Drazen Lovrich to one year for the crimes they committed against civilians in Mostar in 1993.
As a reminder that the accused are on trial for the forced arrest, exile and torture of the Bosnian population living in Mostar during the war, it was noted that six members of the HVO on trial were acquitted in the same case.
