British court refuses to extradite Bosnia's Ganic


A British court refused on Tuesday to extradite former Bosnian wartime leader Ejup Ganic, wanted in Serbia to face trial on war crimes charges, the Press Association reported.

Ganic, 64, was arrested at London's Heathrow Airport on March 1 at the request of Serbian authorities for alleged "conspiracy to murder with other named people and breach of the Geneva Convention, namely killing wounded soldiers".

Ganic, a member of the Bosnian wartime presidency, is one of 19 people wanted in connection with an attack by Bosnian forces on a retreating column of the former Yugoslav People's Army (JNA) in Sarajevo in May 1992, one of the opening salvoes of a conflict that tore Bosnia apart.
