Goran Marković and Neđo Ikonić were acquitted of charges that they were involved in the crimes, Balkan Investigative Reporting Network (BIRN) has reported.
Jević and Đurić were found guilty of “aiding genocide in the area of Srebrenica”.
The court determined that they took part in expulsion of Bosniak population from Srebrenica and in the murder of around 1,000 men in the Kravica agricultural cooperative and therefore helped implement the plan aimed at exterminating the Bosniak population.
Marković and Neđo Ikonić were acquitted because the Bosnia-Herzegovina Prosecution failed to prove their responsibility for the crimes in Srebrenica in July 1995.
Jević was a Republic of Srpska (RS) Police Special Brigade’s Jahorina Training Center commander, while Đurić was the unit’s First Company commander.
The convicted men can file an appeal.
