Turkey extradites Serbian ex-soldier to Bosnia on charges of war crimes


Dusko Dabetic, a Serb sought by prosecution officials in Bosnia and Herzegovina on charges of war crimes against civilians during the Bosnian War, has been extradited by Turkey.
Dabetic arrived in Sarajevo, aboard a Turkish Airlines scheduled flight accompanied by two Bosnian police officers, Anadolu Agency reported.
The Sarajevo-born 64-year-old Serb, Dusko Dabetic is wanted by Interpol on charges of committing war crimes against Bosniak and Croat civilians including murder, torture and rape in the Grbavica municipality of Sarajevo during the siege of the city between the years 1992-1995.
Dabetic's case is under investigation by Cantonal Prosecution Department.
A Sarajevo court issued an international arrest warrant for Dabetic in September 2012.
In November 2014, he was arrested by the Interpol Department of the Turkish General Directorate of Security at Antalya Airport while allegedly using fake traveling documents. Dabetic was sent to Metris Prison in Istanbul awaiting extradition.
According International Red Cross, at least 312,000 people killed by Serb forces, including 200,000 Bosnians, were killed during the Bosnian War between 1992 and 1995.
A total of 8,400 people remain missing, according to the Institute for Missing Persons in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Former Serbian Party leader Radovan Karadzic, Serb army commander Ratko Mladic, chief of general staff Ljubisa Beara, head of security Dragan Nikoli and police director Ljubomir Borovcanin were among those found guilty of war crimes committed during the 1995 Srebrenica massacre.
Between 1,000 and 1,500 Bosniak men were captured by Serb forces on 13 July,1995, locked in a warehouse belonging to the Agricultural Cooperative in the Bosnian Serb village of Kravica and killed by troops using automatic weapons and grenades.
About 8,000 Bosnian Muslim men and boys were eventually killed after the Bosnian Serb army attacked Srebrenica -- designated a UN "safe area" -- in July, 1995, despite the presence of Dutch troops tasked with acting as UN peacekeepers.
