DID YOU KNOW?  -- Three years before the 1995 Srebrenica Genocide, Serbs torched Bosniak villages and killed at least 3,166 Bosniaks around Srebrenica. In 1993, the UN described the besieged situation in Srebrenica as a "slow-motion process of genocide." In July 1995, Serbs forcibly expelled 25,000 Bosniaks, brutally raped many women and girls, and systematically killed 8,000+ men and boys (DNA confirmed).

[correction] The title of this article was changed to "Four Serbs Charged Over Srebrenica Genocide", because one the Accused is Slovenian national.
The Prosecutor's Office of Bosnia and Herzegovina filed an indictment against 4 former members of the 10th Sabotage Detachment of the Bosnian Serb Army (Army of Republic of Srpska or VRS) charging them with Genocide.

All the accused are in custody, and they are: FRANC KOS (aka: Slovenac, aka: Zuti, aka: Branimir Manojlovic) born on 16 July 1966; STANKO KOJIC (aka: Geza, aka: Savanovic) born on 23 January 1968; VLASTIMIR GOLIJAN born on 25 October 1974, and ZORAN GORONJA (aka: Zoka) born on 7 September 1971.

According to the indictment, they personally and directly participated in the systematic killings of at least 800 unarmed Bosniak men and boys in the 1995 Srebrenica genocide. Bosnian Muslim civilians were captured and then brought to the economy farm Branjevo near Zvornik, and then systematically executed. The indictment alleges that the defendants, together with other members of the 10th Sabotage Detachment, executed prisoners who were blindfolded with their hands tied. The accused Franc Kos and Stanko Kojic searched for survivors with signs of life and then shot them in the head.

The indictment was forwarded for confirmation to the Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The Court will issue official press release later this week.
