HIGHER COURT IN BELGRADE
WAR CRIMES DEPARTMENT
18 June 2012
Pursuant to my authority under article 331 (1) re articles 333 (2) and 43 (2.5) of the
Criminal Procedure Code; and articles 3 and 4 of the Act on the Organization and
Competence of State Authorities in War Crimes Proceedings, I raise this
INDICTMENT
Against:
PETAR ĆIRIĆ, a.k.a. “Pero“, ak.a. “Pero Cigan“, born on 07/06/1968 in Vrbas; citizen
of the Republic of Serbia; official criminal record: convicted before the District Court
in Novi Sad and currently serving his sentence in the Correction Centre Sremska
Mitrovica, pursuant to ruling no. K-287/06, rendered by that Court,
BECAUSE:
In the period between the afternoon of 20 November and early morning of 21
November 1991, at a farm called Ovčara outside Vukovar, in the then Republic of
Croatia – part of the former Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (SFRY), acting as
a member of the Vukovar Territorial Defence force (TO) operating within the then
Yugoslav Peoples Army (JNA); in the course of the ongoing armed conflict in that
region, which did not have an international character, this accused committed
serious breaches of international law, namely of the following acts:
- Articles 3 (1a) and 4 (1), (2) and (3) of the 1949 Geneva Convention relative to the
Treatment of Prisoners of War (Geneva Convention III), ratified by the FPRY
National Assembly of the Federal Peoples Republic of Yugoslavia (FPRY) in 1950;
and
- Article 4 (1) and (2.a) of the Protocol Additional to the Geneva Convention on the
Protection of Victims of Noninternational Armed Conflicts (Protocol II), adopted on
08 June 1977 (SFRY Official Gazette no. 16/18, International Contracts).
Acting together with the following members of his unit: Miroljub VUJOVIĆ, Stanko
1
VUJANOVIĆ, Miroslav ĐANKOVIĆ, Milan BULIĆ, Jovica PERIĆ, Milan
VOJNOVIĆ, Goran MUGOŠA, and Damir SIRETA; and with members of the
voluntary unit Leva Supoderica, namely the following: Milan LANČUŽANIN,
Predrag MILOJEVIĆ, Predrag DRAGOVIĆ, Ivan ANASTASIJEVIĆ (named Ivica
HUSNIK at the time), Đorđe ŠOŠIĆ, Nada KALABA, Saša RADAK (against whom
proceedings have been finally completed), and a number of other unidentified
individuals, the accused, Petar ĆIRIĆ, engaged in the killing and physical injuring of
war prisoners from the Vukovar Hospital, who had previously surrendered their
weapons to the JNA soldiers and then been handed over to the Vukovar TO force.
Among those captured in this way were members of the Croatian armed forces,
militias, voluntary units and persons escorting those armed forces albeit not directly
belonging to them.
Description of the criminal offence:
On their way to a farm hangar where they were going to be confined, the captives
were forced to run between two lines of soldiers. Standing in one of the lines, the
accused, Petar ĆIRIĆ, beat and physically injured the captives as they passed. A
while later, when a list with their identification details had been made, the war
prisoners were divided into groups which were then loaded on a tractor and
transported in several tours to Grabovo, a site 1km away from Ovčara. Present in a
firing sqad that was formed at Grabovo, the accused, Petar MARIĆ, shot and killed
the captives. On his return from Grabovo to Ovčara, the accused engaged in the
execution of the last remaining group of around ten prisoners, which took place in
front of the hangar.
In the aftermath of the above-described massacre, two hundred (200) persons were
deprived of life, of whom one hundred and ninety-three (193) have been positively
identified. The names, father names and surnames of those identified, as well as the
