Montenegro extradites to Croatia general wanted for war crimes

Montenegro has extradited to Croatia a retired Serbian general wanted in connection with war crimes against civilians committed in the early 1990s, the Veritas documentation centre said in a statement on Tuesday.

General Borislav Djukic, a national of Serbia, was arrested at Tivat airport in Montenegro on 18 July 2015 as he returned from Belgrade.

Djukic is accused, along with several other suspects, of war crimes committed against civilians in northern Dalmatia during the war in the early 1990s.

Djukic was also charged in 1995 with destroying a dam on the River Peruca. The same indictment covered General Ratko Mladic, commander of the Yugoslav People's Army (JNA) 9th Knin Corps, the late General Mile Novakovic, commander of the Croatian Serb army (SVK), and Major Milan Korica, commander of SVK border units.

According to Veritas, 154 Serbs have been arrested to date on international warrants issued by the Interpol office in Zagreb, of whom 51 have been extradited to Croatia.
