Remains of Three Victims from the past War identified in Tuzla

The official identification of three victims of the past war will be carried out today in the premises of the Podrinje identification project in Tuzla.

“Families should thus confirm the identity previously obtained through DNA analysis for two victims killed in 1995, during the fall of Srebrenica, and one victim killed in the Vlasenica area in 1992,” said Emza Fazlic, a spokeswoman for the BiH Institute for Missing Persons.

According to her, the father and son whose remains were exhumed from the mass graves of Pilica, Cancari and Zeleni Jadar will be officially identified, while the remains of the third victim were found during the exhumation at the Pećina site in Vlasenica.

Fazlic notes that after the identification of the families of the victims in 1995, they will decide on the burial of those victims at this year’s collective funeral in the Srebrenica-Potocari Memorial Center.

“In the first three months of this year, a total of 17 victims of the last war were identified. In the next period, three more identifications are scheduled in Tuzla “, said Fazlic.

Since the beginning of 2021, 13 exhumations have been performed, and on that occasion, 10 complete skeletons and eight incomplete mortal remains or cases were exhumed.
