EU police in Bosnia searched war crimes suspect's house

Bosnian Serb police and European Union peackeepers on Monday raided the house belonging to a Bosnian Serb war crimes suspect, police said.

"The police raided the house of Stojan Zupljanin in Banja Luka early this morning. The suspect was not in the house but the operation is still ongoing," Bosnian Serb police spokesman Radovan Pejic said.

Stojan Zupljanin was the wartime commander of Bosnian Serb police in Banja Luka and is indicted by the U.N. war crimes tribunal based in The Hague, Netherlands for crimes against humanity and the violations of the laws or customs of war. Bosnian Serb wartime leader Radovan Karadzic and his wartime military chief, Gen. Ratko Mladic are the two most-wanted suspects sought by the U.N. court war crimes court.

As the wartime leader of the Bosnian Serbs, Karadzic is accused of having masterminded, together with former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic, Bosnia's 1992-95 war, which killed 260,000 people and left another 1.6 million homeless. Since his indictment for genocide in 1995, Karadzic has been on the run, presumably hiding somewhere deep in the mountains of Bosnia and surrounded by armed bodyguards. NATO and EUFOR have repeatedly failed to catch him and officials believe he has a strong network of supporters enabling him to avoid detention, the AP reports. I.L.
