Ex-Croat PM to be extradited


Austria is set to extradite former Croatian Prime Minister Ivo Sanader on Monday to face corruption charges in his home country.

Police confirmed that several investigations are pending against the former leader, including allegations relating to the creation of slush funds for his conservative HDZ party during his time in office.

Officials said Sanader will be driven through Slovenia on his journey back to Croatia.

Last December, Sanader was picked up while driving on an Austrian highway, a day after the Croatian parliament lifted his immunity from prosecution.

Sanada claimed he’s the target of a witch hunt by former colleagues and the media.
