Two Bosnian Serb Plead Not Guilty At The Hague

15 April 2005 -- Two Bosnian Serbs who surrendered last month to the UN tribunal for the former Yugoslavia pleaded not guilty today to war crimes.

Former Bosnian Serb military policeman Gojko Jankovic and General Radivoje Miletic both disputed charges filed by prosecutors at The Hague for alleged involvement in crimes during the 1992-95 Bosnian war.

Jankovic is accused of 14 counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity during the Bosnian Serb assault on the town of Foca, southeast of the Bosnian capital of Sarajevo, in the summer of 1992.

Miletic faces charges stemming from the July 1995 massacre of thousands of Bosnian Muslims in the UN-protected Srebrenica enclave in eastern Bosnia.
