The details

Ljubiša “Mauzer” Savić (Serbian: Љубиша Маузер Савић; 11 August 1958 – 7 June 2000) was a Bosnian Serb war-time paramilitary commander and post-war politician. He led the "Panteri" brigade during the Bosnian War of 1992-1996. His actions in the war included the securing of Bijeljina to Republika Srpska forces as well as the liberation of the sieges of villages Smoluća and Tinja. Many of his actions during the war were made into songs featured in the album "Garda Panteri" by Rodoljub "Roki" Vulovic, a Bosnian Serb turbo-folk singer and former soldier of Garda Panteri.

After the war, he became the chief-of-police in Bijeljina. He was killed in Bijeljina in 2000, due to suspected Gang violence in the city after three gunmen reportedly fired upon his jeep. The first attempt on Savic's life happened in July 1998. Two former Republika Srpska soldiers, Stojan Maksimovic and Vladimir Neretljak, were killed in an explosion outside his house. Mauser accused Krajisnik, the then leader of the SDS, and pro-Belgrade elements in the entity's security services of attempting to plant a bomb under his car.
