Israel extradites citizen wanted for genocide to Bosnia

Israel extradited to Bosnia a Carmiel resident of Bosnian-Serb origins, Aleksandar Cvetkovic, wanted for genocide. The prolonged extradition process was conducted by the police and the State Attorney's Office's international department, and completed after the Supreme Court rejected his appeal.


According to the extradition request, Cvetkovic was part of an eight-man firing squad that killed about 1,000 Bosnian Muslims at Branjevo farm in July 1995, part of the Srebrenica massacre. In 2006 he immigrated to Israel and got married. In 2010 the Interpol issued an international warrant for his arrest. (Omri Efraim, AFP)
