JULY 16th, 1995
One of the members of a unit participating in the executions, Drazen Erdemovic, surrendered himself to the Tribunal and, in 1996, provided it with detailed testimony of killings he had himself participated in, or was aware of, at two of the execution sites: Branjevo Military Farm and the Pilica Cultural Center. Erdemovic belonged to the 10th Sabotage Detachment based at Han Pijesak, the headquarters of the VRS. He recounted how the members of his unit were ordered on July 16th to go to a farm (Branjevo Farm) in the area of Pilica, though they were not initially told for what purpose.
