Former Bosnian Army soldier Mustafa Gegaj has been arrested for allegedly breaching the Geneva Conventions on protection of civilians and prisoners of war during the 1990s conflict in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the state prosecution announced on Thursday.
“He has been accused of committing crimes in the Hrasnica, Butmir and Sokolovic Kolonija neighbourhoods in Sarajevo against Serb victims who were unlawfully held in detention facilities in the Hrasnica area during 1992, thus committing the criminal offences of war crime against the civilian population and war crime against prisoners of war,” the prosecution said.
The State Investigation and Protection Agency said that after Gegaj has been processed, he will be handed over to the jurisdiction of the state prosecution.
