Rašević, Mitar

Mitar Rašević was indicted together with Savo Todović before the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) (Case IT-97-25/1 "Foča"). According to the indictment, both men participated in a joint criminal enterprise (JCE) that came into existence in April 1992 and continued until October 1994. The purpose of the JCE was to imprison Muslim and non-Serb civilians from Foča and the surrounding areas in inhumane conditions in the Foča KP Dom and subject them to beatings, torture, enslavement, deportations and forcible transfers. The Foča KP Dome was one of the largest prisons in the former Yugoslavia and it became the primary detention facility for non-Serb detainees. The majority of the detainees were exchanged, release or disappeared during 1992 and 1993. Rašević was the commander of the KP Dom guards and he supervised at least 37 guards.

Rašević is charged with seven counts of crimes against humanity and five counts of violations of the laws and customs of war. In 2006, The ICTY Referral Bench referred the case against Rašević and Todović pursuant to Rule 11bis of the Tribunal’s Rules and Procedures to the Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
