A retrial of two former members of the Lucko Police Anti-Terrorist Unit, Frano Drljo and Bozo Krajina, who were in 2014 acquitted of the murder of six Serb civilians in Grubori village near Knin following the Croatian army and police Operation Storm in August 1995, is set to commence before the Zagreb County Court on 15 February.
The retrial was ordered by the Supreme Court, which upheld a prosecution appeal in late 2015.
Drljo was charged with direct involvement in the killings and failure to prevent his subordinates from committing the murders and setting fire to the victims' houses, while Krajina was charged with command responsibility.
The new trial will be held by a panel of judges to be presided by Judge Ivan Turudic.
The accused denied the charges from the beginning.
