The indictment states that from July 10 to 19, Gavrić, who was a deputy police commander in Srebrenica, committed, abetted, ordered and supported criminal acts, whose goal was the persecution of the Bosniak population on national, ethnic and religious grounds.

Gavrić, along with other members of the Republika of Srpska’s armed forces, is accused of participating in the forced deportation of civilians, who, after the fall of the protected zone in Srebrenica, sought refuge with UN forces in Potočari.

Along with other members of the Serb military and police, Gavrić helped divide Bosniak male and female civilians, after which many of them were never heard of or seen again.

The indictment against Gavrić has been forwarded to the Bosnia-Herzegovina courts, the prosecution has announced.
