Mass murderer serves with petty theives

The Bosnian-Serbian war criminal Dragan Obrenovic, 41, is sentenced for the murder of 7500 Muslims, but he serves his time among petty thieves in Norway.

Obrenovic was sentenced to 17 years in jail in December 2003 for contributing to the massacre in the Bosnian city Srebrenica in 1995.

Three war criminal sentenced by the United Nations serve in Norwegian jails. According to the Norwegian paper VG, none of them serve in high security cells at Norway’s most secure prison at Ringerike. These cells were created for just that purpose.

Members of Stortinget’s Justice Committee stated that they are surprised by the information presented by VG.

«It is a scorn and a provocation against the families of the people killed in the massacre,» said committee member Jan Arild Ellingsen from the Progress Party, to VG.

Gunn Karin Gjul, the Labor Party’s deputy leader in the committee, said she wants an explanation from the Minister of Justice Odd Einar Dørum.

«I think this is irresponsible and unacceptable,» Gjul said to VG. «We should not be naïve in regards to war criminals and this is the precise reason why we built Ringerike prison.»

Obrenovic is one of two Bosnian-Serbian commandants who has admitted responsibility for one of the worst massacres in Europe since the Second World War.

According to the judgement, Obrenovic did not thing to prevent his soldiers from participating in the massacre at Srebrenica.
