Karadzic’s former advisor on trial for crimes against humanity

Radovan Karadzic’s senior advisor Jovan Tintor went on trial in Bosnian courts for charges of unlawful detention, torture, forced labour and murder of Bosniak and Croat victims.
Mr Tintor was the former president of the Crisis Committee of the Vogosca municipality. The charges against him outline eight counts of widespread and systematic attack against the non-Serb population in the municipality from April to August in 1992. He pleaded not guilty. 
The defense will bring forward that the president position of the Crisis Committee was taken over by another person in late May of 1992. “We shall prove that no joint criminal enterprise existed at all… Tintor was not involved in any criminal activities,” said one of his lawyers.
Mr Tintor is the ex-advisor of former Bosnian Serb President Radovan Karadzic. Mt Karadzic was convicted of genocide by The Hague in March of 2016 – a decision which has been appealed.
