KOJIC: BiH MISSING PERSONS INSTITUTE MANIPULATES WITH NUMBERS

 

ISTOCNO SARAJEVO, December 5 /SRNA/ - The director of the Republika Srpska Center for the Investigation of War, War Crimes and the Search for Missing Persons, Milorad Kojic, has told SRNA that the BiH Missing Persons Institute has manipulated with numbers since its founding.

 

As an example of manipulation, he cited figures presented today at a roundtable of the Advisory Board of the BiH Missing Persons Institute about progress and priorities in the search for missing persons, where it was said that “133 mortal remains were discovered” this year.

“If we say that 133 mortal remains were discovered, this does not mean that they belong to 133 persons. A DNA analysis should confirm the number of persons. It can happen that 133 mortal remains of 30 persons are found. They are considered mortal remains until a DNA analysis confirms the number of persons,” Kojic has said.

He has said that the Republika Srpska Center for the Investigation of War, War Crimes and the Search for Missing Persons was invited to attend a roundtable today in Sarajevo as an observer, but that he did not want to attend the meeting.

“Having in mind that we are an institution which BiH institutions, primarily the BiH Missing Persons Institute and the Prosecutor’s Office of BiH, are trying to ignore, we did not want to be humiliated as a Republika Srpska institution because we were not a part of the official agenda and we were not allowed to speak about the search for missing persons,” Kojic has said.

According to him, today’s reporting confirmed that they always speak about manipulations.

“It is inadmissible that someone who is engaged in humanitarian work says that Bosniaks found in the area of Podrinje and Srebrenica are victims of “genocide” and when Serbs are discovered says that bodies were discovered in the area of Bratunac Municipality. They cannot say who they are until a DNA analysis is done,” Kojic has said. /end/sg
