Darko Elez, who was sentenced to a total of 20 years in prison in Bosnia and Herzegovina, will soon be extradited to Serbia to serve his sentence there.
Namely, the Ministry of Justice of Serbia accepted his request.
We remind you that on December 21, 2020, Elez was arrested according to the Interpol warrant in Belgrade and extradited to Bosnia and Herzegovina in March. He has been in prison in Vojkovici for almost two years. There are still some ambiguities that need to be resolved in order for Elez to be transferred from Bosnia and Herzegovina to Serbia.
At the beginning of March, after Darko Elez was extradited from Serbia to BiH, it was decided that his detention could not be ordered due to the “Puppet” case, but his detention was ordered due to criminal acts documented by the Republika Srpska Ministry of Interior.
Elez has been confirmed in the “Puppet” indictment, which charges him with organized crime in connection with several serious crimes, including aggravated murder, attempted murder, money laundering and other crimes committed in the period from 2005 to 2009.
Extradition on these charges was previously rejected by the courts, because the extradition agreement between Serbia and BiH was not in force at that time.
