Today, the 34-year-old former Serbian police indicted of involvement in a massacre in Kosovo in 1999 was convicted by the Stockholm District Court to life imprisonment (at least 16 years) and extradition from Sweden after serving his sentence.
Milic Martinovic was found guilty of crimes against international law, murder, attempted murder, and aggravated arson in the village of Cuska in connection with the massacre in which about 40 civilians were killed. However, Martinovic was not linked to all the murders, the court said.
Ten relatives of the men and boys who was killed, or themselves
are survivors, were award damages of SEK 150,000 to 200,000 each.
According to the Prosecutor Lars Hedvall, the conviction was a step in ongoing efforts to ensure that Sweden would not be a safe haven for war criminals.
