Tuzla, Bosnia - People of Tuzla commemorated 22nd anniversary of "Kapija" massacre. On May 25th, 1995 at 8:55 pm, Bosnian Serb Army attacked and killed 71 and injured 124 young men and women.
The families of the victims and various domestic and international delegations laid wreaths and flowers in the Bosnian town’s downtown area, Kapija, in memory of those who were killed there on May 25, 1995 by a mortar shell fired by the Bosnian Serb Army.
At 8:55 pm in the evening, sirens will be heard across the city as a reminder of the events that happened 22 years ago.
The only person convicted of responsibility for the attack was Novak Djukic, former commander of the Bosnian Serb Army’s Ozren Tactical Group, who found guilty of having ordered an artillery squad to shell Tuzla on May 25, 1995.
Djukic was released from prison in February 2014 after the Constitutional Court quashed the verdict under which he was sentenced to 25 years in prison on a legal technicality.
In June 2014, the state court reduced his sentence against Djukic to 20 years.
