Čelebići prison camp

Čelebići prison camp was a prison camp during the Bosnian War utilised by several units of the Bosnian Ministry of the Interior (MUP), Croatian Defence Council (HVO) and later the Territorial Defense Forces (TO). The camp was located in Čelebići, a village in the central Bosnian municipality of Konjic.

The camp was used to detain around hundred Serb prisoners of war arrested during military operation meant for de-blocking of the routes to Sarajevo and Mostar in May 1992, earlier blocked by the Serb forces. The exact number of detainees is not known as some prisoners were exchanged or transferred to other facilities in Konjic. Detainees at the camp were subjected to torture, sexual assaults, beatings and otherwise cruel and inhuman treatment. Certain prisoners were shot and killed or beaten to death.
