NASER ORIC INTERVIEW, SIEGE OF SREBRENICA 1992-1995
A series of interviews were conducted by the investigators of the International Criminal Tribunal (ICTY) with Naser Orić between 2-6 April 2001 and 14-24 May 2001 in Tuzla, Bosnia-Herzegovina. Orić was leader of the poorly armed Bosniak defense forces in the besieged Srebrenica (1992-1995).
According to the trial judgment of Naser Orić, "Between April 1992 and March 1993, Srebrenica town and the villages in the area held by Bosnian Muslims [Bosniaks] were constantly subjected to Serb military assaults, including artillery attacks, sniper fire, as well as occasional bombing from aircrafts. Each onslaught followed a similar pattern. Serb soldiers and paramilitaries surrounded a Bosnian Muslim village or hamlet, called upon the population to surrender their weapons, and then began with indiscriminate shelling and shooting. In most cases, they then entered the village or hamlet, expelled or killed the population, who offered no significant resistance, and destroyed their homes. During this period, Srebrenica was subjected to indiscriminate shelling from all directions on a daily basis. Potočari in particular was a daily target for Serb artillery and infantry because it was a sensitive point in the defence line around Srebrenica. Other Bosnian Muslim settlements were routinely attacked as well. All this resulted in a great number of refugees and casualties."
On 3 July 2008, the ICTY acquitted Orić of all charges against him.
There are 51 videos in total, each weighing between 650-750 MB in size and averaging 1.75 hours in length. In these video interviews, Naser Oric debunks discredited Serbian propaganda and details the birth of resistance and the survival of the beleaguered Bosniak population in the besieged enclave of Srebrenica between April 1992 and July 1995. Due to bandwidth restrictions, we've decided to upload only the first 2 videos that were recorded in April 2001 and only the first 2 videos that were recorded in May 2001.
