Mustafa A. BOBIĆ
MUSTAFA BOBIĆ, son of BEĆIR, born in 1900* in Drežnica near Mostar. Merchant. Joined the People’s Liberation War and Partisan Detachments in early 1942 in the Mostar (Konjic) Battalion. Fighter. Captured by the Domobrani (Croatian Home Guard) near Konjic and handed over to the Italians during the Chetnik coup in June 1942, but later released. Arrested by the Ustaše in February 1945 in Mostar, taken to Sarajevo, and killed.
After the unsuccessful assassination attempt on himself in early March 1945, Maks Luburić took the judiciary into his own hands in Sarajevo and formed his own so-called “Swift Court.” This Swift Court, through verdicts UKP No. 1/45 and UKP No. 2/45, published in the last issue of the Ustaše newspaper “Novi list” on April 3, 1945, sentenced dozens of people to death. Early in the morning on March 28, 1945, seven days before the liberation of the city, the Ustaše publicly hanged 56 people at Marindvor, and additional bodies were found in Luburić’s villa, some of which could not be identified due to the mutilation of the remains. The name of Mustafa Bobić was listed as number 6 in the notice of the death sentence by firing squad.
