Educated in the United States, Mustafa Ceric failed a number of finals before turning to religion as a profession and becoming an imam in Zagreb. During the 92-95 Bosnian War he was active in Sarajevo as the deputy reis-ul-ulema of the Islamic Community, an organization focused on the needs of Bosnian Muslims. His involvement eventually led to Ceric’s current position as Grand Mufti, the highest clerical title in Bosnia. Along side his religious activities, Ceric worked as an agent for Socialist Croatia’s secret police. His name appears on a published list of government informers, under the code-name "Vizier".
Vojislav Carkic, also known as Pop Zuco, served as an army priest in the Vojska Republika Srpska during the Bosnian War. In this capacity he blessed the canons firing on Sarajevo, at one point remarking that “In a military uniform or robe, I am always a soldier of Christ and a soldier of the Serbian people.” Before the war Zuco was active in the budding Orthodox Serbian charity movement. At the same time, he was an informer for the Yugoslavian secret police, the UDBA. His name appears on a published list of government informers, under the code-name "Piccolo".
