June 9, 2006 -- The Bosnian State Court today ordered a Bosnian Serb war crimes suspect to be immediately handed over to the UN court in The Hague.
The suspect, Dragan Zelenovic, was extradited from Russia to Bosnia on June 8.
A judge said arrangements have already been made with NATO for Zelenovic's transfer to the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY).
The UN war crimes court charged Zelenovic with atrocities, including the rape and torture of Muslim women in the southeastern town of Foca, allegedly committed during Bosnia's 1992-95 war.
Russian authorities arrested him in August 2005 in western Siberia, where he had been hiding.
