Court indicts fourteen Bosnian Muslims over war crimes against Serbs

A court in Sarajevo has indicted 14 Bosnian Muslim men accused of committing crimes against Bosnian Serb civilians during the conflict in the region.

The Sarajevo state prosecutor’s office said the men are accused of war crimes “including murder of several dozens Serb civilians, both men and women of different age, torture, robbery and persecution of nearly the whole Serb population from the Konjic area”.

The state prosecutor also indicted a further four Bosnian Serb army officers earlier that week for committing war crimes against Bosnian Muslims.

“The women were raped and sexually molested, while more than 20 men were taken and detained in a nearby school, where...they were kept in inhuman conditions...and on July 13-14 (1995) taken and executed in the village of Mrsici,” the prosecutor’s office said in a statement.
