WE IMPALED CAPTURED SERBS WITH WOODEN STICKS…
The Al-Qaeda officer and Bahrain’ citizen Ali Hammad, after serving 12 year prison sentence in Bosnia, has applied this week for political asylum in Serbia. Mr Hammad now publicly admits that during the recent civil war in Bosnia he participated in the horrific war crimes committed by “El Mujahedin” brigade over captured Serbs and Croats (Bosnian Christian population)…
THE KILLER WITH “CONSCIENCE” ALI HAMAD
Ali Hammad says that now he admits to everything due to sudden outpouring of “remorse”, and that he is not seeking any remedies for himself. The office of Serbian war crimes prosecutor has asked the Serbian government to allow Mr Ali Hammad to come in Serbia and provide his testimony. We are here presenting some fragments of his previous testimony about these war crimes:
“Most of killings were performed by Egyptian Abu Mina, the officer in charge of security and special operations of the “El Mujahedin” brigade. Mina was killing people with the motor saw and the big knife. He was killing captured Serbs in our camp Zavidovici. At front of lined up Mujahedin fighters he was decapitating Serbs with the axe and the big knife. He was cutting alive Serbs in a half, with the motor saw… he was ordering us to impale the prisoners with a wooden stick and to leave them to die in the agony…”
“Abu Mina had killed one 14 year old Serbian boy in Orasac area, where the brigade “El Mujahedin” was trained. They forced the father (of captured boy) to watch the murder of his son…”
“In Orasac area I have witnessed the murder of one Serb. Prior to murder, they brought four Catholic priests, that were about to be exchanged for our captured soldiers (by Croats). Saudi Mujahedin Abu Mais addressed the Catholic priests: “Now you are going to see how Mujahedin kill”. He then invited Sabahudin. Gave him a knife and said: “We will let you kill one Serb.” That man, Sabahudin, was disabled person, and was not capable for real fighting… Then another Mujahedin Asim Ramulu brought the victim to the ground by hitting him. He held the victim’ legs, Sabahudin sat on the back of victim and slit his throat. Then Abu Mais decapitated the head of murdered Serb, brought it to captured Catholic priests, and forced them to kiss the Serbian scull still soaked in the blood…
Abu Mais was braging around that he, together with Imad El Misrija, Abu Mina, Abu Meali, Abdul Barom and Abu Hamaz, executed two Brits, BBC journalists…
SERBIAN PROSECUTOR VUKCEVIC: A TESTIMONY FROM HAMAD WOULD BE VERY BENEFICIAL…
BELGRADE- The prosecutor for war crimes Vladimir Vukcevic states that Ali Hamad could be very useful witness.
We have documented case about the crimes against Serbs in Zavidovici, between July and September 1995. We have as well the testimony from 9 witnesses… We are interested for Hamad’ testimony, because he was, at the time crimes were committed, member of Mujahedin brigade, and he acted under the authority of regular army of Bosnia and Herzegovina. We yet have to see, what he would offer to us through his lawyer, at the coming meeting- stated Vukcevic.
Serbian Office for war crimes (Prosecutor’ office) highlights that the case “Zavidovici” involves the most horrific massacres (over captured Serbian soldiers and civilians). The members of “El Mujahid” brigade, that were mostly fanatic volunteer fighters from Arab countries, in one case they captured the group of 60 Serbian soldiers. These captured Serbs, that were brought to camp in the village Gostovici nearby Zavidovici, have gone through unimaginable torture and suffering, to be at the end decapitated by “Allah fighters”. Mujahedin fighters were forcing captured Serbs to slice each other with knives, they were nailing them alive to wooden fence, driving the nails through their genitals… All these horrific crimes they were videotaping. For some time, such video tapes were able to be borrowed (rented for the purpose of Islamic propaganda and terrorist recruitment) by public members from the Community center in Zavidovici (BiH).
Dusko Tomic, the attorney for Ali Hamad, says that his client has spoken, because of “deep remorse”…
He doesn’t seek the political asylum, but rather the status of “displaced person” on the term of three months, until his testimony could be verified. After that he would return to his home in Bahrain. He believes that Serbia has interest to find the truth about all crimes that were commited over Serbian population by Mujahedin fighters in Bosnia and Herzegovina- concludes lawyer Tomic…
