Miomir Mile Plakalovic

Milomir Mile Plakalovic, born in Sarajevo on 1952, who worked as a taxi driver.

The Dusko Kondor Civil Courage Award is given to Milomir Mile Plakalovic because, although aware the risk, he proved his civil courage:

By bravely spending every day with no exception on the streets of Sarajevo besieged for 1440 days, collecting the wounded and transporting them to hospitals, under fire from sniper rifles and shrapnel from hand grenades, thus saving the lives of dozens of wounded fellow citizens of Sarajevo, including many children.

He risked his life every day in his taxi, asking nothing but where they were heading.
