Prosecutor v. Kupreskic

International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia
Case No. IT-95-16-T (2000)

  • Written by Alexander Hager-DeMyer, JD

Facts

During the Bosnian War, the Croatian Defense Council, a military organization, attacked the village of Ahmici. The attackers killed 100 Muslim residents and burned down over 100 buildings, including homes and mosques. Three members of the Kupreskic family (defendants) and three other Ahmici residents were charged with crimes against humanity, including persecution, for their roles in the attack. The prosecutor (plaintiff) alleged that the Kupreskics engaged in the deliberate and systematic killing of Bosnian Muslims, the expulsion of Bosnian Muslims from Ahmici, and the destruction of Bosnian homes and property. The International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY), a criminal tribunal established by the United Nations Security Council, rendered judgment against the defendants.
