Hague tribunal judges this week sentenced former bodyguard Johan Tarculovski to 12 years imprisonment for crimes committed against ethnic Albanians in the Macedonian village of Ljuboten in August 2001.
At the same time, they acquitted his
co-accused, ex-Macedonian interior minister Ljube Boskoski of all charges in the indictment.
The crimes in question took place in Ljuboten between August 12 and 15, 2001, when a Macedonian police unit under Tarculovski's command entered the village and shot dead six unarmed ethnic Albanians, as well as severely mistreating 13 other residents. One of them was beaten so severely that he died soon afterwards.
The judges ruled that Tarculovski
, on the other hand, had a direct role in the incident and found him guilty for "ordering, planning and instigating the crimes committed in Ljuboten".
However, the chamber found that Tarculovski
was himself acting under someone's orders during the operation.
"The evidence does not enable the person or persons responsible for the orders to Johan Tarculovski
to be identified.
Boskoski will be released from detention upon completion of the relevant procedures, while Tarculovski
will remain in the tribunal's custody.
