The Bosnian state prosecution on Monday charged ten Serb soldiers with having kidnapped the 20 passengers from the train at Strpci station in eastern Bosnia on February 27, 1993.
The prosecution alleges that they took the passengers to the Visegrad area and killed them, World Bulletin reported
“Following the kidnapping, the victims were taken to a school building in Prelovo, near Visegrad, where they were tortured, abused and robbed. After that the victims, who had visible injuries, were transported to Musici, where they were killed. Their bodies were dumped into River Drina,†a prosecution statement said.
The remains of four of the victims were found after the war, while the others are still unaccounted for.
The accused Serbs, ex-Soldiers were arrested in a joint operation by the Bosnian state prosecution and the Serbian war crimes prosecution of Serbia on December 5 last year.
Bosnian prosecution spokesperson Boris Grubesic told that the indictment showed that the two neighboring countries were working together well to prosecute war criminals.
Both prosecutions have also had very good cooperation with families whose loved ones were killed, and who have been searching for their loved ones for two decades,†said Grubesic.
The only person to have been convicted of the Strpci killings crime so far was Nebojsa Ranisavljevic, who was sentenced to 15 years in prison by a court in Montenegro.
Eight of the ex-soldiers indicted on Monday were remanded in custody for a month.
