“It is suspected that in 1993 in one settlement of Sarajevo, they committed multiple sexual assaults and raped a minor – a girl of Serb nationality who was living in the territory of Sarajevo under the control of the Army of Bosnia and Herzegovina,” the state prosecution said in a statement.

Also on Wednesday, the Bosnian border police arrested a former policeman at the Maljevac-Velika Kladusa border crossing who is suspected of the torture and abuse of civilians in Velika Kladusa in north-western Bosnia during wartime.

The prosecution said that it suspected that while working at the police station in Velika Kladusa, the man “inhumanely treated, tortured and abused civilians in Velika Kladusa who he believed were supporters and sympathisers of the structures of National Defence of the Autonomous Province of Western Bosnia [wartime rebel statelet]” in August 1995.

It said that it would not release the suspect’s name because the investigation was ongoing.
