Serb women jailed in Croatia for war crime

Big News Network.com Friday 2nd July, 2004

A Croatian court has sentenced a Serbian woman to 10 years in jail for killing civilians in the wars of the 1990s, the Jutarnji List newspaper said Friday.

Zorana Banic was convicted of helping to kill four civilians including an elderly woman in late 1991. She had been charged with the murder of 34 civilians but there was insufficient evidence to link her to the deaths of all of them.

Banic, 52, is a former nurse. Her conviction was partly based on evidence from a group of children who had witnessed the killings which took place in the village of Skabrnje in November 1991.

She has said she will appeal the verdict.

Banic had fled Croatia to escape the charges against her but was apprehended in Switzerland and extradited.
