Serbian Justice Minister Nela Kuburovic denied having discussed the extradition of two officials of an ultra-nationalist party to the war crimes tribunal in the Hague during her meeting with prosecutor Serge Brammertz.

Brammertz is in Serbia to meet with the Justice Minister, Public Prosecutor Zagorka Dolovac and Chief War Crimes Prosecutor Snezana Stanojkovic pending his report on Serbia’s cooperation with the UN Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals (successor to the Hague Tribunal or ICTY) to the UN Security Council and take part in a regional conference of war crimes prosecutors.  

“The topic of the meeting was promoting regional cooperation, not extradition because that is not a decision by the prosecution but an order which we have to get from the court,” Kuburovic said when asked about the extradition of Serbian Radical Party (SRS) officials Vjerica Radeta and Petar Jojic on charges of threatening and intimidating witnesses during the trial of their party leader Vojislav Seselj.  

She said the Justice Ministry had not received the extradition decision and would wait to see what it says before taking whatever action it can in line with the law.  

Mechanism judges recently ruled that Radeta and Jojic cannot be tried in Serbia and have to be arrested and extradited. Radeta told reporters after the ruling that she had no intention of facing the judges voluntarily.
