A LONDON JUDGE has blocked an extradition request for Ejup Ganic, a Bosnian ex-president and military leader, who Serbia wishes to pursue for war crimes.

The British court ruled that any trial against Ganic would be politically motivated.

Ganic is wanted in Serbia as authorities there believe that he ordered attacks on a medical convoy and is responsible for the execution of surrendered soldiers during the Bosnian war.

However, there have been two previous trials on the accusations. The International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia threw the case out; the second, commissioned by the prosecutor’s office for the State of Bosnia and Herzegovina, similarly ruled that the case was politically motivated.

Following the ruling Ganic said to reporters that the case was “a textbook example of abuse.”

He added that: “The government of Serbia tried to undermine the judiciary in this country, they used taxpayers’ money and they kept me here for five months.”

The Serbian War Crimes Prosecutor’s Office said that they would appeal the ruling.

Ganic’s daughter, Emina Ganic, speaks to Al Jazeera to defend her father prior to the hearing:
