Extradition of a Bosnian War rape suspect

A Balkan Transitional Justice web site has this posting.
The US Federal Court in Missouri on Monday approved an extradition request from Bosnia and Herzegovina for Adem Kostjerevac, who is wanted for trial in Sarajevo on war crimes charges.
Judge Patricia Cohen’s order said that the prosecution’s request “contains sufficient competent evidence to grant the certificate of Kosjerevac’s extraditability”. The final decision the extradition is up to the US Secretary of State.
The Bosnian prosecution accuses Kostjerevac, as a former military policeman with the Bosnian Army’s First Muslim Brigade in Zvornik, of raping a pregnant Serb woman who was being detained in a building that he was guarding in September and October 1992.
