Dragicevic, known as “Zoka” and “Krompir”, is charged as member of the armed forces of Republika Srpska with taking part in the expulsion of non-Serb civilians between May 2, 1992, and December 1994.

He was arrested in Bijeljina on December 3 and has been held in custody since.

According to the indictment, sent to the Bosnian State Court for confirmation, he raped one woman and "took part in inhuman treatment, torture, physical abuse, physical abuse, illegal imprisonment and robbing of the property of non-Serb civilians”.

It is said that Dragicevic took part in these crimes as an accomplice of defendant Veselin “Batko” Vlahovic, whose trial is drawing to its end before the Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The Vlahovic trial is one of the most high-profile cases before the Bosnian judiciary. The indictment contains 100 counts of rape, abuse, murders and theft.

The Court has already sentenced one of his former accomplices, Sasa Baricanin, to 18 years for rapes committed in Grbavica.
