Serbia pushes again for Ganic extradition

BELGRADE, Serbia, March 26 (UPI) -- Serbia sent its chief war crimes prosecutor to London Friday with more evidence to be used in its bid to extradite former Bosnian leader Ejup Ganic.

Ganic, a former member of Bosnia-Herzegovina's four-member presidency, is free on bail in England awaiting an extradition hearing that a London court on Thursday postponed until April 13, the Belgrade daily Danas reported.

Ganic is accused of ordering Bosnian troops to attack retreating Serbian Yugoslav troops in Sarajevo in May 1992, an attack that left 42 Serbian soldiers dead, 73 wounded and 215 captured, Radio Serbia said.

Both Serbia and Bosnia have filed extradition requests for Ganic, with Bosnia arguing it has first right at trying one of its own citizens.

Ganic was arrested on an Interpol warrant March 1 when he arrived at Heathrow International Airport in London.
