NIKOLIĆ SENTENCED TO 23 YEARS' IMPRISONMENT

The Accused, Dragan Nikoli}, also known as "Jenki", a 46 year-old Bosnian Serb, was the first person indicted by this Tribunal on 4 November 1994. A First Amended Indictment was confirmed on 12 February 1999 and contained 80 counts of Crimes against Humanity, Grave Breaches of the Geneva Conventions, and Violations of the Laws or Customs of War. This case deals with his individual responsibility for particularly brutal crimes committed in the Sušica detention camp near the town of Vlasenica in the Municipality of the same name. Dragan Nikoli} was a commander in this camp, established by Serb forces in June 1992.

Already on 4 November 1994, arrest warrants for Dragan Nikoli} were issued. Following the failure to execute the arrest warrants, proceedings pursuant to Rule 61 of the Rules were initiated on 16 May 1995. On 20 October 1995, the Trial Chamber issued its decision determining that there were reasonable grounds for believing that Dragan Nikoli} had committed all the crimes in the indictment.

The Trial Chamber stated that the failure to effect service of the indictment and to execute the arrest warrant was due to the failure or refusal of the then Bosnian Serb administration in Pale to co-operate.
The Accused was finally apprehended on or about 20 April 2000 by SFOR in Bosnia and Herzegovina and immediately transferred to the Tribunal on 21 April 2000.
