Serbian war criminal suspect Goran Hadzic caught
Goran Hadzic, Serbia’s last major war crimes fugitive, a Croatian Serb wartime leader indicted for crimes against humanity during the 1991-95 Croatian war, has been arrested.
Hadzic is charged with ordering the killing of hundreds and the deportation of thousands of Croats and other non-Serbs from the area.
In Serbia, Hadzic gained notoriety in the past for his involvement in murky deals including illegal exports of oak wood, wine as well as crude oil from an oil well which was under Serb control. He was frequently seen in the company of Zeljko “Arkan” Raznatovic, a paramilitary leader and the head of Belgrade’s underworld at the time.
Update: and the court rules he is fit to be extradited:
The hearing was being conducted by Judge Milan Dilparić, in the presence of the war crimes prosecutor. The court announced afterwards that all conditions for Hadžić’s extradition to the Hague Tribunal had been met, and ordered his detention.
