Dear Honourable Jody Wilson-Raybould
Canadian Serb Milan Lešić, founder and president of the humanitarian organization from Canada, “Humanitarian Organizations Republika Srpska”, during the aggression against the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the genocide against its citizens, especially Bosniaks, financed the Republika Srpska Army and Police from the funds collected in Canada. By the final verdict of the International Court of Justice in 2007, the Republika Srpska Army and Police were convicted of the worst crime in Europe after the Second World War, the genocide in Srebrenica of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Milan Lešić also had several meetings with Radovan Karadžić and Ratko Mladić, charged with genocide and other crimes in Bosnia and Herzegovina by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, at the time when an international arrest warrant was launched against them. Milan Lesic also met several times with representatives of the political establishment of the Republika Srpska entity both in Canada and in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Milan Lesic took tens of thousands of Canadian dollars to finance the aggression and genocide in the Republika Srpska entity. In return, Karadzic give him a pistol, and Mladic fiddle for his support. The depth of their friendship is testified by the fact that he saw Karadzic and Mladic in 2001 for the last time in Belgrade, where both were hiding from international justice. This support obviously did not stop even after the aggression and genocide on Bosnia and Herzegovina, since he maintained contacts with Karadzic while he was a fugitive from international justice. Namely, in 2001 Lešić met separately with Karadžić and Mladić in Belgrade. Within a year after Karadzic’s arrest, at the beginning of 2009, the niece of Momcilo Krajisnik, joined Milan Lasic in the church in Canada where she was seeking money to help Karadzic.
Milan Lešić financed in the spring of 1993 the aggression of the Republika Srpska Army entity to Gorazde, Grebak and Trnovo. After the occupation of Grepka and Trnovo and complete isolation of Gorazde, Republika Srpska’s political, military and police in a special reception expresses gratitude to Milan Lešić,also were they planned an attack on the protected zones of the United Nations Srebrenica and Zepa. After two years, Milan Lešić also financed the aggression against the protected zones of the United Nations Srebrenica and Zepa.
Based on the fact that Canada has adopted a federal law on “Universal Jurisdiction” for crimes against humanity, on the basis of which a citizen of Rwanda in 2009 was sentenced to life imprisonment for participating in the genocide committed in that country in 1994, the International Expert Team of the Institute for Research of Genocide, Canada which has more than a hundred eminent genocide researchers and human rights activists in collaboration with the Congress of North American Bosniaks, many organizations for the protection of human rights and freedoms in the world, and in cooperation with organizations of survivors of genocide in Bosnia and Herzegovina asks you to pay special attention to the allegations we receive concerning the criminal activities of Canadian Serb Milan Lešić.
It is in the interests of justice and truth, therefore, a better common Bosnian-Herzegovinian future for all war criminals living in Canada to be prosecute.
We look forward to Canada response.
Professor Emir Ramic
Chairman of the Institute for Research of Genocide
President of the Congress of North American Bosniaks
