The Bosnian state court on Thursday confirmed the indictment of Djorgje Simic, who is accused of involvement in the persecution of the non-Serb civilian population in the Doboj municipality from May 1992 until autumn 1993.

He is also accused of involvement in the forced disappearance of one person in the context of a widespread and systematic attack on Doboj by the Bosnian Serb Army in the same period.

Simic has yet to enter a plea.
