DID YOU KNOW?  -- Three years before the 1995 Srebrenica Genocide, Serbs torched Bosniak villages and killed at least 3,166 Bosniaks around Srebrenica. In 1993, the UN described the besieged situation in Srebrenica as a "slow-motion process of genocide." In July 1995, Serbs forcibly expelled 25,000 Bosniaks, brutally raped many women and girls, and systematically killed 8,000+ men and boys (DNA confirmed).

According to Serbian daily 'Glas Javnosti', Ibran Mustafic was attacked again by an unknown assailant. There are conflicting accounts of his attack, but the suspect who allegedly attacked him was released by the Bosnian Serb police and no charges are pending. Mustafic spied for the Serbs in Srebrenica during the siege of the enclave in '90s.

The attack

We learn from our sources in Srebrenica that everything started with heavy drinking. Late into the Friday night and in the early morning hours of Saturday, Mustafic was heavily drinking in the nightclub "Akapulko" located in the downtown Srebrenica. At around 1:30 am, somebody sucker-punched him and he fell on the ground. This is the second attack against him. He was beaten up in the same nightclub two years earlier, in April 2008.

In the war-time Srebrenica, Mustafic allegedly had close ties with Radovan Karadzic's leadership and was in frequent contact with Momcilo Krajisnik - one of key Serb politicians in Karadzic's war-time quazi-government. Mustafic survived three assassination attempts in Srebrenica. He blamed them on Naser Oric, but Oric rejected his accusations as categorically unfounded.

'Planned Chaos'

In his book, "Planned Chaos: 1990-1996" (Planirani Haos 1990-1996), he accused former president Alija Izetbegovic - and Sarajevo leadership in general - for 'collaborating' with Slobodan Milosevic and subsequently destroying the Republic of Bosnia-Herzegovina. He also heavily criticized Naser Oric for defending Srebrenica from the notorious Serbian terrorists stationed in heavily militarized Serbian-occupied villages around this former Bosniak-Muslim district. From 1992-95, Serbian terrorists around Srebrenica raided Bosniak villages, shelled the enclave killing Bosnian Muslim civilians, and prevented humanitarian convoys from entering this 'safe haven' causing a widespread starvation in the enclave.

It looks like Mustafic's book is simply a convenient smokescreen into his questionable activities in and outside of the enclave during and immediately after the fall of Srebrenica. The publisher of his book is listed as the NGO Association "Mothers of Srebrenica and Podrinje." People close to the Tuzla-based NGO association Women of Srebrenica told us that the so called association of "Mothers of Srebrenica and Podrinje" was formed by Mustafic himself for the purpose of promoting his book. This seemingly fake NGO has never been representative of the views of women and mothers who lost their loved ones.

His neighbor, Hakija Meholjic, is also an outspoken critic of Alija Izetbegovic. According to him, Izetbegovic was actually a 'Serb' planted by the Belgrade regime to destroy the Republic of Bosnia-Herzegovina.

What's he doing now?

Today, Ibran Mustafic was busy setting up the flag of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina on the masts next to the Srebrenica Genocide Memorial in Potocari. The 15th anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide is due on July 11th.

At the 10th anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide, Ibran Mustafic almost caused violence by coming uninvited to disrupt the memorial proceedings. He took the microphone and shouted: "Long live Bosnia and Herzegovina! Death to all genocidal creations on this territory!"
