The following is a statement of the accused Rinco.
-Rinco: I was employed in the army of republic of Yugoslavia as a Captain. I have been in Kosovo, after the peace agreements have been signed.
I came back to Serbia, after my coming back, my cousin Zoran came to visit me, he stayed with me for 20 days and all this time we were together. On the night of the 18th of July 1999 at 23:30 my cousin Zoran and I went to Spisco the village where Zoran lives.
We were supposed to have a rest there, than I d continue driving to the village where my father lives, I haven’t seen my family for three years, when we arrived at my cousins village he bought 2 litres of wine and 2 litres of minor vodka, we came to his house and waited for his girlfriend to come back from work, she came soon and I met her and she told me her name was Gondana.
Since we were tired of traveling we went to bed, when we woke up it was 12:30 and after that Gondana prepared something to eat, we drank some wine and water then another guy came I didn’t know him, we drank more wine and I started singing Zoran liked listening to me. We were having a good time Zoran took out a rifle and shot a few bullets just for fun, a few minutes later Gondana brought another bottle of wine and we drank more and the other guy gave me a magazine, I loaded the weapon and started shooting toward the sky, I kept the weapon on my right hand but somehow I lost control of it and it started falling down, I noticed Zoran fell down and I didn’t realized what was going on, so I thought he was joking with me, I went to let him up and I saw blood on the ground.
He was laying on his stomach with his head on the ground, as I saw what I did I put Zoran down and wanted to get the gun and kill myself but Gondana stopped me.
I started banging my head against the wall, I can’t remember what happened exactly after that. Because I lost cousins twice all I know that 2 police men came and took me to the police station. This is all I can recall regarding this incident.
The statement was read to me loud and clear and I signed it.
