Oliver Ivanović, leader of the Civic Initiative SDP, is in the detention for 30 months now and still waiting for the decision following the appeal on the first degree decision, by which he was sentenced to nine years in prison for alleged war crimes committed during the conflict in Kosovo. His defense attorneys and family are not losing hope and still expect that the decision will be annulled by the Appellate Court.

The appeal on first degree decision was filed in March and Ivanović’s lawyers expect the Appellate Court’s session in this case could take place sometime in autumn, October or November. They are optimists, and so is Ivanović himself.
Ivanović was sentenced based on the testimony of only one witness, whereas his family believes that he is innocent. Four others were in the same group of indicted persons with Oliver Ivanović and they are all released by the court.
