Football boss Zdravko Mamic will spend the night in custody of the Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina where a hearing will be held on Friday, to decide on Croatia’s request for his extradition.
"There was an option that a hearing is held today (Thursday), but it was decided it be held tomorrow (Friday)," Zdravko Rajic, Mamic’s lawyer told Hina news agency.
He recalled that his client was brought to the premises of the State Investigation and Protection Agency (SIPA), who apprehended him during the day, after which he will be transferred to the Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina where he will stay until the hearing.
Mamic and his Bosnian lawyer Rajic said earlier; they will object his extradition to Croatia, which was requested based on the Agreement on International Legal Assistance between Croatia and Bosnia.
According to the procedure, the Court will determine whether Mamic owns Bosnian citizenship, and he will declare himself whether he objects his extradition to Croatia.
Dinamo's boss was sentenced to six-and-a-half years in prison last week, along with three other people, on charges that he was damaging Dinamo and the Croatian budget.
The day before the verdict, he came to Bosnia, whose citizenship he possesses.
