The landmine in 'No Man's Land'

This site is about landmines, it has pretty good descriptions of the main landmines used in the Bosnian War. This particular mine is the one that was a key part of the story of 'No Man's Land'

Ahhh, the ITF?

Are you aware that the founder of this organization is a former Serb Soldier under suspicion for war crimes?

I have documentation to back this up; I just can't find it right now. I've got to go through my archives of "google-alerts".

If I remember correctly he is also being investigated because the British Government paid him hundreds of thousands of pounds to demine areas of Bosnia. I think he imbezzeled the money or used a large portion for himself or something.

I was going to write a post on my blog about this company and the information I found out on the ITF and their Serb Army Soldier founder. I want to say he even contributed to the attack on Sarajevo, don't quote me on that though.

I'll do some research and get back to ya.

I have heard of a landmine clearance company that was founded by a Serb war criminal, I forgot which one, none the less it's a picture of the exact mine in the film 'No Man's Land'. He leaves out that it is difficult if not impossible to disarm.
You have to admit that if you look over the site it's a very thorough catalogue of these infernal devices. The JNA had particular skill in makeing land mines that didn't have a lot of ferrous metals and which therefore were hard to detect.
