A LONDON JUDGE has blocked an extradition request for Ejup Ganic, a Bosnian ex-president and military leader, who Serbia wishes to pursue for war crimes.

The British court ruled that any trial against Ganic would be politically motivated.

Ganic is wanted in Serbia as authorities there believe that he ordered attacks on a medical convoy and is responsible for the execution of surrendered soldiers during the Bosnian war.

However, there have been two previous trials on the accusations. The International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia threw the case out; the second, commissioned by the prosecutor’s office for the State of Bosnia and Herzegovina, similarly ruled that the case was politically motivated.

Following the ruling Ganic said to reporters that the case was “a textbook example of abuse.”

He added that: “The government of Serbia tried to undermine the judiciary in this country, they used taxpayers’ money and they kept me here for five months.”

The Serbian War Crimes Prosecutor’s Office said that they would appeal the ruling.

Ganic’s daughter, Emina Ganic, speaks to Al Jazeera to defend her father prior to the hearing:

# serbia - Thursday 22 July, 2010

THE UN’S INTERNATIONAL Court of Justice has ruled that Kosovo’s 2009 secession from Serbia did not violate international law. Serbia had filed a case with the ICJ in 2009, saying that Kosovo’s declaration was a “flagrant violation” of Serbia’s territorial integrity.

The court’s deliberations were being watched closely by many countries who have separatist factions seeking independent. Spain, which is home to more than one separatist movement, has not recognised Kosovo’s independent, and neither has China.

In 2008, Georgia filed a lawsuit at the ICJ against Russia, saying Russia’s incursion into South Ossetia amounted to ethnic cleansing.

The ruling may have implications for separatists around the world, and could encourage more countries to recognise Kosovo’s independence.

Kosovo’s declaration of independence was recognised by the US, Australia, Canada, and 22 EU member states. It is recognised by 69 out of 192 UN members.

Yesterday, the US pledged to support Kosovo’s independence even if the ICJ had ruled otherwise. Serbia and Russia, which is a permanent member of the UN’s Security Council, refute Kosovo’s claims. Serbia regards Kosovo as a UN-run area within its sovereign territory.

It lost control over Kosovo in 1999 after the 78-day NATO bombing campaign ended the two-year was between Serbia and Kosovar Albanians.
