The fugitive killer of the Serbian warlord known as Arkan has appeared in court in South Africa.

Dobrosav Gavric has been charged with drugs offences that are unrelated to his murder conviction.

Gavric was initially stopped by police in connection with a shooting in Cape Town.

Serbia is expected to request his extradition within the next two weeks.

Zeljko Raznatovic (or Arkan) was a Serbian military commander who led a paramilitary force in the 1990s Yugoslav Wars.

He was assassinated in 2000 in the lobby of a top Belgrade hotel after being on Interpol’s most wanted list for many years.
