Mustafa S. GLAVOVIĆ
MUSTAFA MUJO GLAVOVIĆ, son of SULEJMAN, born on August 2, 1905, a merchant. Activist of the National Liberation War. Arrested by the Ustasha on February 12, 1945, two days before the liberation of Mostar, and taken to Sarajevo. He was killed in Ustasha reprisals shortly before their withdrawal from Sarajevo, in the final days of the war in 1945.
After a failed assassination attempt on Maks Luburić in Sarajevo in early March 1945, Luburić took the judiciary into his own hands and formed his own Summary Court. This so-called Summary Court, through its judgments UKP No. 1/45 and UKP No. 2/45, published in the final issue of the Ustasha newspaper “Novi list” on April 3, 1945, sentenced dozens of people to death. In the early morning of March 28, 1945, seven days before the liberation of the city, the Ustasha publicly hanged 56 people at Marindvor, and several others were found in Luburić’s villa who could not be identified due to the mutilation of their remains. The name of Mustafa Glavović was announced as number 13 on the notice/announcement of the death sentence by firing squad.
Mustafa’s wife, Murta Glavović, was a witness to the statement given by Fata Raljević, the mother of the slain Ibrahim Raljević, to the “City Commission for the Investigation of War Crimes by the Occupiers and their Collaborators” on October 5, 1945, and she stated the following:
“I was well acquainted with the Raljević family, and I know that the Ustasha took away her son Ibrahim on February 12 of this year (i.e. 1945). At that time, my husband Mustafa Glavović was also taken away. They were taken to Sarajevo, where they were later executed by the Ustasha under Maks Luburić.”
