Tribunal Reveals Indictment of Bosnian Serb

Associated Press

U.N. war crimes prosecutors in the Netherlands revealed a secret indictment Wednesday against a former Bosnian Serb security chief charged with the genocide of Muslims and Croats during the 1992-95 war in Bosnia.

Stojan Zupljanin, the former head of Serbian security services and special advisor to wartime Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic, has been charged with 12 counts of genocide, torture, murder, persecution, extermination and deportation for atrocities in Bosnia-Herzegovina in 1992, according to his indictment.

Zupljanin, believed by tribunal officials to be near the town of Banja Luka, was secretly indicted in 1999 along with Gen. Momir Talic and Radislav Brdjanin. Talic and Brdjanin, arrested in 1999, are awaiting trial.
