The Bosnian state prosecution on Friday raised an indictment charging Davidovic with taking part in the rape and sexual abuse of Bosniak women in Foca in July 1992.

“After Serb forces took several Bosniak women as prisoners in one village near the town of Foca and took them to the High School Centre in the city, Davidovic twice came with a group of soldiers and took part in the rape and abuse of three women,” the prosecution said in a statement.

The indictment has been sent to the Bosnian state court for confirmation.
