Bosnia's State Court on Thursday sentenced former advisor to wartime Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic, Jovan Tintor, to 11 years behind bars for war crimes committed in the area of the eastern town of Vogosca.

Tintor was close to Karadzic, who is appealing an International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) sentence for genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity committed in Bosnia between 1992 and 1995.  

Tintor was also the head of the Vogosca municipality Crisis Committee during the war.

He was in a first instance ruling on Thursday sentenced for his involvement in the crimes against humanity committed within a joint criminal enterprise that had the goal of exiling the non-Serb population that lived in the Vogosca area from April to end of June 1992, Bosnia’s public broadcaster (BHRT) reported.  

Specifically, he was sentenced for illegal imprisonment, torture, beatings, forced labour and killings of Bosniak and Croat victims in several detention camps across Vogosca.  

One of the crimes described in the indictment is an occasion when Tintor beat the stomach of protected witness C-3 while she was seven months pregnant.  

Prosecutors called more than 75 victims and four expert witnesses to make their case against Tintor, while his defence called ten witnesses and one expert witness.  

Tintor was arrested in February 2016 at the Rača border crossing between Bosnia and Serbia on an arrest warrant that was issued in 1999.
