Alleged war criminal Branko Rogan admitted to the RCMP back in 1998 that he  lied to Canadian officials about working at a notorious jail where Muslim  prisoners were beaten and tortured.

In a videotaped interview played in Federal Court on Monday, Rogan said he  was worried he would not have been allowed to come to Canada if he disclosed  that he was a reserve police officer in 1992 at the jail in Bileca, in the  former Yugoslavia.

“I was scared that they will not accept me,” Rogan told RCMP Insp. Paul  Richards, then with the war crimes section in Ottawa.

Rogan said he was desperate to get out of the region with his wife and three  small children.

“I was there with no food, my children had nothing to eat. I had to go  somewhere,” Rogan said in Croatian to another officer who translated for  Richards.

The Canadian government is attempting to revoke Rogan’s citizenship, claiming  it was fraudulently obtained because Rogan lied about where he was living when  the war broke out, as well as his position as a jail guard.

He is challenging the revocation in the Federal Court in a Vancouver hearing  that began last week.

Rogan has not attended the case so far, but is expected to come next week to  tell his story.

The allegations against him were spelled out in detail during the 90-minute  interview at the Burnaby RCMP detachment on Oct. 7, 1998.

Rogan told Richards he knew some Bosnian Muslims living in B.C. had made  allegations against him.

“Those neighbours of mine -Muslims -I knew this was going to happen. They  were looking at me every day on the street and threatening me -‘How come a Serb  is here?'” Rogan said. “I should be accusing, not them.”

He told Richards that he did work for just 15 days at the jail where Muslim  political prisoners were held, but did not participate in any beatings or  torture sessions.

He acknowledged, however, that he had heard that beatings were taking place  at two separate jails in Bileca.

Richards told Rogan he had information that “some Muslims were tortured with  electricity.”

Rogan replied: “I heard that.” But he denied reserve police had anything to  do with it.

“The reserve police were just in the hallways,” Rogan said. “The regular  police were the ones interrogating these Muslims in those rooms.”

Rogan said that while he heard about the torture: “I never saw it.”

Richards told Rogan he had travelled all over the world interviewing former  prisoners in Sweden, the Netherlands and Austria about their allegations against  Rogan and others who had been working at the detention centres in the summer of  1992.

Last week, two men from Sweden testified in Vancouver that they had been  beaten and tortured at the Bileca jail and saw Rogan calling out prisoners to be  taken away for the brutal assaults. And two Vancouver brothers who were also  detained in Bileca for being Muslims told Federal Court Judge Anne MacTavish  that Rogan was there and participated in the beatings.

Rogan denied to Richards that he ever struck anyone while working as a  guard.

“If these Muslims want to tell the truth, they can say how many letters I  brought them from their wives, how many times I gave them things to eat,” Rogan  said, adding that he also gave them their medicine and even alcohol their wives  provided.

Richards asked Rogan who was giving the orders to guards at the jails to beat  and torture Muslims.

“Nobody was forced to beat Muslims, but there were people who did it, but  nobody had to do that, nobody forced nobody,” he said. “There wasn’t an order  for that.”

Richards informed Rogan he was under investigation for war crimes and Rogan  called his lawyer from the interrogation room. He then told the RCMP his lawyer  had advised him to go home and say nothing, but that he wanted to set the record  straight about what happened.

“My lawyer told me not to say anything, but I will say because it is the  truth and because I wish to tell that,” Rogan said.

The hearing continues.

  1. I’m for anyone who fights the followers of islam.

    If we had stayed out of Bosnia it would now be one less muslim conclave. Shame on us!

  2. Canada had its brains between its legs when it followed the Communist Clinton in favour of muslims against Orthodox Christian Serbs. Serbs fought , bled, and died for the Allies (US) in both World Wars.
    Clinton was honoured last year with a statue of himself. Americans must feel sooooooooo proud that Christian churches, some dating back to the 1400’s were demolished, 800,000 Serbs slaughtered by the oh so christian American led NATO, and empowered muslim jihadists to threaten not only the US but the rest of the world. If you think you can punish Russia, remember Russia’s right to pre-emptive strike now. It has far superior weapons to the US. The difference: Russia has WILL. The US is a lame, dithering, withering has-been “power”. Already Cursed by God.

    And Americans must be oooooh, sooooo proud to know Carla Del Ponte, the ex-chief prosecutor for war crimes in former Yugoslavia, has unleashed a storm of recrimination with allegations of a trade in human body parts in Kosovo and Albania after Nato bombed Serbia in 1999.

    Del Ponte claims, based on what she describes as credible reports and witnesses, that Kosovan Albanian guerrillas transported hundreds of Serbian prisoners into northern Albania where they were killed, and their organs “harvested” and trafficked out of Tirana airport. Heart and liver were wrenched from Serb youth —- ALIVE.
    Yesterday Serbia. Tomorrow America. And it can’t come quick enough.
