Duško Tadić

Duško Tadić (born October 1, 1955 in the Socialist Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Yugoslavia) is a Bosnian Serb who was convicted of crimes against humanity, grave breaches of the Geneva Conventions, and violations of the customs of war by the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) for his actions in the Prijedor region, including the Omarska, Trnopolje and Keraterm detention camps.

Tadić was arrested by German police in Munich in 1994. He faced twelve counts of crimes against humanity, twelve counts of grave breaches of the Geneva Conventions, and ten counts of violations of the customs of war, to all of which he pleaded not guilty. His trial was to be held together with Goran Borovnica's, but Borovnica went missing in 1995 and was later declared dead.

Tadić was found guilty on 13 of the charges for crimes against humanity and violations of the laws of war. He was sentenced to twenty years imprisonment. Upon Tadić's appeal of the ruling, he was found guilty of several more charges. He is currently serving his sentence in Germany.
