ICTY Appellate Chamber Affirms 12-Year Sentence for Tarculovski

International Criminal Court Flag The Appellate Chamber of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) has upheld the conviction and 12-year jail sentence of Johan Tarculovski, a former police officer of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM).  Mr. Tarculovski was convicted of having ordered, planned and instigated crimes against ethnic Albanians during a police operation in 2001.

 

Mr. Tarculovski was found guilty two years ago of ordering, planning and instigating the murder of three ethnic Albanian civilians, wanton destruction of 12 houses or other property and cruel treatment of 13 ethnic Albanian civilians. The appeals chamber dismissed all of his seven grounds of appeal, based on both jurisdictional and factual issues.
