BiH prosecutors have filed an indictment against three former members of the Bosnian Army for the killings, illegal imprisonment, torture and other crimes committed against Serb civilians in the Sarajevo neighbourhood of Hrasnica between 1992 and 1993.

The indictment was filed against Senad Gadzo, Zaim Lalicic and Suljo Hebib.

“The accused are charged with acting contrary to the provisions of the Geneva Conventions for the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War, as guards of members of the 1st Corps of the Army of RBiH,” the Prosecutor’s Office said.

The defendants stand accused of “illegal detention, murder, torture, ill-treatment, torture, humiliating torture, mutilation and other severe forms of ill-treatment of Serb civilian victims from Hrasnica, Butmir and Sokolovic Kolonija.”

“These crimes resulted in the death of six victims, whose deaths were the result of severe beatings and abuse, as well as permanent bodily and mental injuries to a large number of victims, which still have the consequences of abuse,” the Prosecutor’s Office said.
