Professor Ejup Ganic, a United States-educated academic and former member of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina, was arrested en route to his home in Sarajevo via Heathrow Airport. The Republic of Serbia, which waged a bloody war on Bosnia from 1992 to 1995, made a preliminary request to the U.K. for Ganic’s extradition. It alleged that he had committed war crimes in 1992 during the Serbian-led aggression against Bosnia, allegations that have already been investigated — and dismissed — by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia in The Hague.
