At yesterday’s session of the Court of Appeal, which is in session due to the appeal against the Special Court for Organised Crime judgment in the proceedings against four members of the secret service for the murder of journalist Slavko Ćuruvija in 1999, the attorney of Radomir Marković, the former head of the State Security Service and close associate of fomer President Slobodan Milošević, requested the acquittal for his client, claiming that there was no single evidence that he had organised this crime.
The defence attorney of Miroslav Kurak, who was charged to have shot Ćuruvija, claimed the same.
The attorney of two defendants who are former officers of the secret service, Milan Radonjić and Ratko Romić, tried to contest the prosecutor’s appeal, claiming that his request to sentence the defendants to 40 years of prison each was unlawful. The prosecutor said that was not true and that his request was legally founded.
