Bosnian Croats lit candles in honour of deceased convicted war criminal Slobodan Praljack on the anniversary of his death, in Mostar, on Thursday evening. The former Bosnian Croat military commander died last year after drinking poison after hearing the verdict of his appeal hearing in The Hague. Praljak was appealing a conviction from 2013 for committing crimes against humanity in Mostar during... Еще the 1992-1995 war. The International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia upheld the 20-year prison sentence. After learning his fate, Praljak ingested potassium cyanide and was rushed to hospital where he died. Mostar, which is the largest city in the Herzegovina region and also has the largest Bosnian Croat population, was the scene of intense fighting during the Bosnian war with the city being divided on ethnic lines.
