Kljajic had a significant role in the creation and execution of policies relating to crimes of aggression and genocide, in relation to joint criminal enterprise.

The Republic Srpska Ministry of Internal Affairs was responsible for creating the Serbian Crisis Staffs which carried out the orders of Radovan Karadzic and Ratko Mladic in murdering, raping, interring in camps and expelling the rest of the non-Serbian populations in territory they controlled. They were directly responsible for organizing most the war crimes committed against the civilian population of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The Republic of Srpska Ministry of Internal Affairs was directly in control of the notorious camps of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Omarska, Keraterm, Trnopolje, Manjaca among numerous others. Mr. Kljajic no doubt played an integral role in establishing these policies and the reign of terror that followed.

Respected Excellencies,

This letter is intended to inform and alert you regarding a serious case of a suspected war criminal living in Canada, who lied about his past and his role during the war of aggression on Bosnia and Herzegovina in the 1990s. The suspected war criminal's name is Cedomir Kljajic, a former police inspector from Sarajevo, he was also an undersecretary for public security in Vrace and was the third person of authority in the so called Republic Srpska Ministry of Internal Affairs. According to the judgments of international and national courts this criminal organization was responsible for organizing and carrying out of much of the ethnic cleansing campaigns and genocides committed in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Especially in 1992 when 70% of all war crimes were committed against civilian population in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Mico Stanisic, Minister of Interior of the so-called Republika Srpska and Stojan Zupljanin head of the regional center of security services in Banja Luka, a member of the Crisis Staff and a presidential adviser of the so-called Republika Srpska Internal Affairs Department, were sentenced to 20 years by the International Criminal Tribunal for former Yugoslavia for operating a joint criminal enterprise with the aim of eliminating Bosniaks in Bosanska Krajina.

Kljajic had a significant role in the creation and execution of policies relating to crimes of aggression and genocide, in relation to joint criminal enterprise.

In addition to lying to the Investigation at the International Criminal Tribunal for former Yugoslavia, Kljaić lied to Canadian immigration and government about his role in the Bosnian conflict. As a witness at the trial of Radovan Karadzic, he changed his testimony stating that he practiced law for the last 10 years. The International and Canadian legal system must not for one moment tolerate lies of those who participated in a joint criminal enterprise which resulted in mass expulsion and genocide of Bosniaks. This destruction of entire ancient, indigenous, European peoples, Bosniaks took place at the end of the 20th century, in an era of democracy and protection of human rights and freedoms, in the heart of a united Europe.

Even if he has not been convicted or arrested for these crimes (yet) Canada must not be a safe harbor for suspected criminals of his kind who have been linked to some of the gravest crimes committed in the history of mankind. His participation in the aggression on Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina and genocide against its citizens, his admission of lying on his application to come to Canada and the very real chance that his victims who were granted asylum in Canada and received the same status as their tormentor, makes it of utmost importance that Canada takes a hard line on him and anyone in the future found to be responsible or at the very least participants in such grave crimes against humanity at best, aggression and genocide at worst.

On behalf of the victims of the aggression against the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina and genocide against its citizens, in the name of truth about these crimes and justice for the victims of these crimes please do not sully the reputation of the great Canadian nation by turning your backs and ignoring this war criminal and his crimes. Please do not victimize the victims one more time by allowing this man to remain free one day longer on Canadian soil.
