Bosnian Serb Police Arrest War Crimes Fugitive

Sarajevo _ Bosnian Serb police has arrested Zdravko Tolimir a wanted war crimes fugitive, a high-ranking international official told Birn’s Justice Report.

The source did not elaborate further.

Tolimir is indicted by the Netherlands-based UN war crimes court for genocide during the 1992-1995 war in Bosnia. He was a Bosnian Serb military’s deputy-commander for intelligence and security and one of the seven deputies of the top wanted war crimes fugitive Ratko Mladic.

After Tolimir’s arrest, five people sought by the Hague tribunal for war crimes, including Mladic and his former political leader Radovan Karadzic remain at large.

This is the first arrest of a war crimes fugitive by the Republika Srpska’s police, following the end of Bosnian war in 1995.
