Australian Serbs vow to prevent extradition of fellow for Croatian war crime





CANBERRA -- Australia's Serb community vowed on Monday to fund a battle in the country's highest court to stop the extradition of a former Serb commander accused of Balkan war crimes.

Dragan Vasiljkovic, 52, who lives in Australia and also has Serbian citizenship, was arrested in January 2006 and remains in jail pending an extradition request launched by Croatia...

Croatia holds Vasiljkovic responsible for torturing and killing Croat soldiers and civilians, as well as killing a foreign journalist, when he commanded a Serb paramilitary unit during Croatia's 1991-95 war of independence.
