Bosnia’s state prosecutor has filed an indictment against former Croat fighter Frane Vulic for killing civilian prisoners at the Dretelj wartime detention camp in 1993.
The state prosecutor’s office on Wednesday charged former military policeman Vulic with killing three Bosniak men at the Dretelj prison camp in Capljina in the south of the country on July 14, 1993.
Vulic, who served during wartime with the Fifth Military Police Company of the Croatian Defence Council, HVO, is accused of shooting the detainees with an automatic rifle.
“While standing guard as a military police officer next to a hangar within the Dretelj camp where Bosniaks were detained, Vulic fired bullets through a window, killing three detainees,” the prosecutor said in a statement.
Vulic was arrested last month and has been held in custody since then.
Five other people are already on trial for alleged war crimes at the Dretelj camp.
Mirko Zelenika, Srecko Herceg, Ivan Medic, Edib Buljubasic and Marina Grubisic-Fejzic, former members of the Croatian Defence Forces, are charged with the abuse, rape and murder of Bosnian Serbs held at the camp in 1992.
