BELGRADE, Serbia (November 12,2007) – Genocidal Serbia has raised an indictment against Bosnian citizen Ilija Jurišić.The Serbian State Prosecutor Vladimir Vukcevic said that an indictment has been raised against former Tuzla Municipal Council Chair Ilija Jurišić for participation in the “Tuzla column” case.

Ilija Jurišić is a Bosnian patriot who participated in defending the Bosnian city of Tuzla from the Serbian aggressor,during the 1992-1995 Serbian aggresion against Bosnia.Jurišić has been arrested by the Serbian aggressor and has been in a prison in Belgrade since 11 May 2007.

Vukcevic said that the Serbian State Prosecutor’s Office has weighed the evidence against Bosnian citizen Ilija Jurišić and established that there is enough ground for raising an indictment against him.

The indictment charges Jurišić with the use of prohibited means of combat during the attack on a JNA column in the eastern Bosnian town of Tuzla on May 15 1992,during the Serbian aggression against Bosnia.

This case is also known as "the Tuzla Column".The Serbian aggressor, with the active participation of so called "Yugoslav People’s Army" (JNA) forces, seized about 70 per cent of Bosnia in the first few weeks of the 1992-1995 Serbian aggression against Bosnia.JNA was totally controlled by Serbia and the role of the JNA in the early stages of the war was very important.

In May 1992,the JNA troops came under attack by the Bosnian Army as they were withdrawing from the Bosnian city of Tuzla.Up to 200 Serbian aggressor's soldiers were reportedly killed and 140 Serbian aggressor's soldiers were taken prisoners by the Bosnian Army.
