Spain to extradite Luka Bojovic. JAT lease two airplanes from Slovenia. Belgrade protects pays and jobs in the north.



Jat Airways has laid a deposit of $ 450,000 for a three-year lease of two Airbus A319s from the Slovenian airline Adria Airways. The aircrafts are expected to arrive in Belgrade in the last week of May or the first week of June.


Spanish authorities have decided to extradite the leader of Belgrade's notorious Zemun criminal clan, Luka Bojovic, to Serbia. Bojovic was arrtested in Spain in February 2012.


Veljko Odalovic, member of Serbian team for implementation of EU-deal, said it was important that local Serbs in the north understand that in those solutions their rights will be protected and that they will be in a position to establish the most direct ties with Serbia. Also they want guarantees that Serbia will never stop supporting Serbs financially or in any other way, Odalovic said. According to his words nobody will be left without a job and the team from Belgrade will insist on sustainable solutions.
