General Draza Mihailovich sentenced to death by Tito's Yugoslav Court on July 15, 1946

ON THIS DAY, 64 years ago in Serbia...

General Dragoljub Draza Mihailovich was put on trial in Belgrade by Marshal Tito's Yugoslav communists beginning on June 10th, 1946 until July 15, 1946. He was charged with approximately 47 counts of war crimes and high treason, and found "guilty" on 8 counts.

On this day, July 15th, he was sentenced to death by firing squad.  The next day, July 16, the Presidium of the National Assembly in Belgrade rejected the clemency appeal. On July 17, 1946 the sentence was carried out.

To date, as of July 15, 2010, the remains have not been found, and there is still no gravesite.
