Who is Goran Petronijevic, the authorized lawyer of Milan Radoicic?
During the regime of the former Serbian leader, Slobodan Milosevic, Petronijevic was a judge in the Court of Peja in Kosovo.
In that position, in May 2000, Petronijevic sentenced 150 Kosovo Albanians to a total of 1.600 years in prison under suspicion of committing terrorism, reports Free Europe.
He left the position of judge after the democratic changes of October 5 in Serbia, and then practiced as a lawyer.
Before the international court, lawyer Petronijevic has represented several clients from Serbia, accused of war crimes.
The most famous is Radovan Karadžić, the first president of Republika Srpska in Bosnia and Herzegovina, who was sentenced to life imprisonment at the Hague Tribunal for war crimes.
Before the Tribunal in The Hague, he also defended former Yugoslav army officer Veselin Shlivancan, who was convicted of war crimes in Ovçara near Vukovar.
In mid-August, Petronijevic announced an initiative to protect Milorad Dodik, the president of the Republika Srpska entity of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Earlier, the Prosecutor's Office of Bosnia filed an indictment against Dodik for disobeying the decisions of the High Representative in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Christian Schmidt.
