Serbia seeks extradition of Djindjic murder convict.

By bne IntelliNews June 10, 2010
Sretko Kalinic, who has received a 30-year sentence in absentia for his role in the killing of former PM Zoran Djindjic in 2003, has been arrested in Croatia. Kalinic, born in Croatia, was admitted to a hospital in the Croatian capital Zagreb on Jun 8 with gunshot wounds. Serbian Justice Minister Snezana Malovic said Belgrade would seek Kalinic's extradition. However, this may turn out to be complicated since Kalinic has Croatian citizenship. Interior Minister Ivica Dacic told journalists that Kalinic had a Croatian passport with a different identity at the time of his arrest. Kalinic reportedly told police he was wounded by his former associate Milos Simovic, who was also sentenced to 30 years in jail for the assassination of Djindjic. Djindjic was killed in 2003 by a group called the Zemun gang, which is linked to former paramilitaries.
