EU peacekeepers have been searching the home of a former Bosnian Serb president, suspected of helping fugitive war crimes suspect Radovan Karadzic. Troops arrived at the house in a Sarajevo suburb early this morning, looking for information and documents.
Mirko Sarovic has long been suspected of belonging to a support network helping Karadzic evade justice. Against this backdrop, Sarovic’s bank accounts were frozen by local authorities earlier this year along with those of 32 other people suspected of helping either Karadzic or his equally elusive former army chief Ratko Mladic.
The International War Crimes Tribunal in the Hague has indicted both Karadzic, the Bosnian Serb wartime leader, and Mladic, for genocide.
