Defense counselor Mirna Delalic said the Zulfikar Unit participated in the combat operations taking place at the time, a claim she substantiated with a report from the First Corps of the Army of Bosnia and Herzegovina produced on June 15, 1993.

According to the indictment, Bojadzic was the former deputy commander of the Zulfikar Unit with the Staff of the Supreme Command of the Army of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

According to Delalic, a document created by the Zulfikar Unit on July 12, 1993 showed that Bojadzic informed the Supreme Command about combat operations occurring in the area of Trnovo.

Among other charges, Bojadzic is charged with the assault and sexual abuse of captives of Croat nationality at the Bitka na Neretvi Museum in Jablanica on July 28, 1993.

Bojadzic is also charged with the rape of a captive of Croat nationality in Jablanica on July 28 or 29, 1993.
