The Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina in Sarajevo issued on Tuesday a final verdict for Dusko Jevic and Mendeljev Djuric.

Jevic was sentenced to 32, and Djuric to 28 years in prison for their role in Srebrenica genocide.

The verdict said two of them were members of the Special police forces of the Ministry of Interior of Republika Srpska during the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and as such they took part in Srebrenica events from July 10 to 19, 1995.

Jevic was deputy commander for the Special brigade of the Ministry of Interior, and commander at the Center for education of police at Jahorina. Djuric was commander of the I squad at this Center.

The  verdict found that two of them, willingly, helped members of the joint criminal enterprise to commit genocide in Srebrenica. Other members of the joint criminal enterprise are high ranking military, police and civilian leadership of Republika Srpska, including Radovan Karadzic and Ratko Mladic, both indicted by the international tribunal.

Srebrenica was taken over by the military and police forces of Republika Srpska on July 11, 1995. More than 3,000 people, mostly man and boys, were killed and over 40,000 civilians expelled from the area.
