26th Anniversary of the Crime at Tuzla Gate to be marked Today

The 26th anniversary of the crime at Kapija, which took place on May 25, 1995, will be marked in Tuzla today. The explosion of a grenade fired from the position of the Army of the Republika Srpska from the mountain Ozren killed 71 people, and more than 200 were wounded.

The average age of the killed citizens was 21, and the youngest victim was two-and-a-half-year-old Sandro Kalesic.

By the decision of the Cantonal Government from 2016, May 25 was declared the Day of Mourning in Tuzla Canton.

According to the protocol, the parents of the killed, representatives of the city and cantonal authorities and members of the association will lay flowers in the Alley of Youth.

“Bearing in mind that a large number of citizens and delegations want to pay tribute to the victims of crimes at Kapija and all civilian victims of war, the Organizing Committee of the commemoration on May 25 asks all citizens and delegations to adhere to all prescribed upon arrival at the Alley of Youth in Slana Banja and Kapija (physical distance, protective mask and a limited number of people in the group) ”, appealed the Tuzla City Administration, emphasizing that May 25 is one of the most difficult days in the history of the city.

RS Army General Novak Djukic, who was the commander of the Ozren Tactical Group, was sentenced to 20 years in prison for the crime at the Tuzla Gate. However, since 2014, he has not responded to the execution of his sentence under the pretext that he is receiving medical treatment in Serbia. Although a warrant has been issued for his arrest, he cannot be extradited to BiH at the moment because he has Serbian citizenship.
