Man suspected of Bosnian war crimes will leave US

CLEVELAND Ohio A man accused of concealing his membership in a Serbian special police unit that massacred more than 8,000 Bosnian Muslims during the 1995 genocide will leave the U.S. as part of his condemnation.

A lawyer for Oliver Dragic (DRAH’-gich) said Dragic to leave for Bosnia with his mother sometime in June.

Dragic appeared in federal court Tuesday in Cleveland and was sentenced to time served after 13 months in custody while waiting for his case to be decided.

Dragic pleaded guilty in December to possession and use of fraudulently obtained immigration documents.

Prosecutors say Dragic, of Barberton in suburban Akron, made false statements on forms about his role in the ethnic cleansing in Bosnia at the request of the refugee status in the united states in 1998.
