Kathryn Howarth successfully represents the Croatian judicial authorities in securing the extradition of an alleged war criminal

3rd June 2016

On 3 June 2016, District Judge Zani ordered the extradition of Milenko Maric in relation to allegations of torture and war crimes, arising from events that took place during the conflict in the former Yugoslavia in 1991. It is alleged by the Croatian authorities that Maric participated, along with others, in beating and torturing civilians of non-Serbian ethnic origin at the prison of the Secretariat for International Affairs in Beli Manastir. The extradition proceedings began almost a year ago and involved hotly contested expert evidence called by the defence but ultimately rejected by the District Judge.
