The Bosnian prosecution issued an indictment on Thursday charging former Bosnian Serb Army soldier Sabahudin Kajdic with the persecution of Bosniak civilians in the Prijedor area in July 1992.

“During a broad and systematic attack by the Bosnian Serb Army and the police on Bosniak civilians in Prijedor and the surrounding area, as a member Prijedor Motorised Brigade of the Bosnian Serb Army, he carried out the persecution of civilians, a crime against humanity,” the prosecution said in a statement.

Kajdic is accused, along with other Bosnian Serb Army troops, of seizing two Bosniak civilians who have not been seen since from the town of Gornja Puharska in the Prijedor municipality.

He is also accused of killing two civilians in the Jordan Njive area of the Prijedor municipality, and with torturing and intimidating a large number of Bosniak civilians.

The prosecution on Thursday also charged another former Bosnian Serb Army soldier, Dusko Suvara, with crimes against Bosniak civilians in the Glamoc municipality.

He is accused of forcibly taking Bosniak women from their homes in May and June 1992 and raping and sexually abusing them.

Both indictments have been forwarded to the state court for confirmation.
