The Seventh Circuit has determined that a Bosnian refugee committed a material misrepresentation when he failed to disclose his military service during the Bosnian War.  The court reached this conclusion despite the fact that there was no evidence that the petitioner participated in any persecution, torture, genocide, extrajudicial killings, or other acts that would have barred him from obtaining refugee status.  The mere fact that the failure to disclose the military service cut off a potential line of questioning was sufficient to sustain the fraud charge.
