Serbian researchers say 5,515 Serbs killed in wartime Sarajevo

BELGRADE, June 5 (Srna) -- Milivoje Ivanisevic, director of the [Belgrade] Centre for Researching Crimes against Serbs, has pointed out that 5,515 Serbs were killed in Sarajevo between 1992 and 1995.

"We have the lists of all the names of victims from all municipalities and settlements in Sarajevo. We have been patiently collecting evidence of atrocities committed by Muslims. For this reason, we have the name of every victim, their place of birth and the location where they were killed," Ivanisevic told the Belgrade-based Vecernje novosti [daily].

"Around 20,000 Serbs endured monstrous torture in one of the 123 Muslim detention camps in Sarajevo," Ivanic said, adding that "hundreds of Serb girls and women were raped by [wartime Bosnia-Hercegovina President] Alija's [Izetbegovic] soldiers.

He went on to say that the documents about the perpetrators of these crimes contained 3,350 names, mainly of those who committed the killings, but that the names of [the wartime] leaders of the city of Sarajevo and of municipalities where Serbs were terrorized should be added to this list.

Explaining about the practice of diminishing the number of war crimes committed against Serbs, he said that one of the "bestial rules in the treatment of Serbs was to release them from these camps after drawn-out and boundless torture, hunger and beatings a day or two before they would be killed so that they could be registered and given a medical certificate stating that they died a natural death".

"Most of the Serbs who were brutally killed in their own homes were registered as dying of natural causes," Ivanisevic explained.

And alas, all the research will come to naught, since the West Europeans and both American political parties have so bought into the Muslim propaganda campaigns associated with the wars of the Yugoslav dissolution, and are so eager to feed Christian Serbia to the Muslim crocodile in hope of being eaten last.
