The UN war crimes tribunal in the Hague decided to allow Serbia’s former secret police chief Jovica Stanisic to remain on extended leave to the end of April 2020.

Stanisic is standing trial for crimes committed in Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina between 1991 and 1995. He was released temporarily for medical reasons in the summer of 2017, soon after the start of his re-trial. Stanisic was diagnozed with chronic digestive system ailments and depression. He headed the Serbian State Security Service (RDB) during the Milosevic regime and .  

The judges at the tribunal ruled that Stanisic is temporarily incapable of traveling and added that he is expected to recover enough to travel under adequate conditions in the near future.  

Defense lawyers said earlier that Stanisic intended to return to the Hague once they started presenting his defense which was completed in October. He is standing trial with his second in command Franko Simatovic.
