Croatia will implement changes to its extradition rules in line with European Union demands no later than next January, Justice Minister Orsat Miljenic said on Wednesday.

"The law will take effect as soon as possible, but the latest date is January 1, 2014," Miljenic told reporters during a visit to Brussels to discuss a row over the rules with EU officials.

Brussels has threatened to withhold some financial aid to Croatia, a new EU member, unless it complies with its standards on extraditing suspected criminals within the bloc.
