“While President Bill Clinton’s administration and his media sycophants painted the Serbian military as war criminals and supported the Croat and Muslim side in the conflict, we later discovered the Muslims were as brutal and merciless as — if not more brutal and merciless than — the Serbs”, said crime and terrorism analyst Bradley Schreiber.
The federal indictment alleges that in July 1992 Sakoc abducted, kidnapped, tortured and raped a Bosnian Serb woman and aided and abetted the brutal killing of the rape victim’s elderly mother and aunt.
The suspect also allegedly aided and abetted arsonists involved in torching the victims’ family home.
Sakoc was charged in a two-count indictment filed Friday in the U.S. District Court in the District of Vermont. The charges carry a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison as well as automatic revocation of his U.S. citizenship and a fine of up to $250,000, according to the Department of Justice.
The Prosecutor’s Office of Bosnia and Herzegovina assisted the federal investigators in locating and capturing a man they claim is a ruthless war criminal. The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Human Rights Violators and War Crimes Center also assisted the FBI in this investigation.
