EU Presidency welcoming the arrest of Stojan Župljanin

The EU Presidency welcomes the arrest today in Belgrade of Stojan Župljanin, one of the four remaining war crime fugitives, charged with crimes committed in Bosnia-Hercegovina. It underlines that Mr Župljanin now needs to be transferred to The Hague without delay.

The apprehension of Mr Župljanin is an important step towards Serbia meeting in full the condition of co-operation with the International Criminal Tribunal for former Yugoslavia. The Presidency hopes that the authorities of the Republic of Serbia will strengthen their efforts to that end, also in order for Serbia to be able to advance further on its path of approach to the EU.
