Dzambegovic, a former member of the Army of Bosnia and Herzegovina, ABiH, is suspected of having committed crimes against the civilian population in Crkvine village, Gorazde municipality, from May to August 1992.

The Prosecution of BiH alleges that Dzambegovic used to come to the village from which all able-bodied men had been taken away. He allegedly physically and mentally mistreated and intimidated Serb civilians, who stayed in the village. Some of the civilians were more than 70 years old.

The Prosecution announced that it also conducted an investigation against the persons, who were suspected of having taken the men from Crkvine village.

“They are suspected of having taken ten men from Crkvine village in May 1992. The men were killed after having been taken away. Their remains are still being searched for,” the announcement says.

SIPA announced that, following his arrest, suspect Dzambegovic was brought to the premises of that Agency and that he would then be handed over to the Prosecution of BiH.
