Bosniak sentenced to three yrs for killing Croat civilians in 1993

The Bosnian State Court's Appeals Chamber has sentenced a member of the 7th Muslim Brigade of the Army of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Jasmin Coloman, to three years in prison for war crimes, namely for killing three Croat civilians and wounding another nine in central Bosnia, the Court said in a statement Friday.

The crime took place at the start of the Croat-Bosniak war in April 1993.

The Appeals Chamber has previously quashed the ruling handed down by a court of first instance which acquitted Coloman of all charges.

According to Croats sources, the crime was committed on 23 April 1993 in the village of Prnjavor from which all local Croats were expelled on the first day of the conflict, on April 16.
