30 May 2008 Sarajevo _ NATO and EUFOR troops have raided the apartment of a renowned Serbian academic who is believed to be linked to war crimes fugitive Radovan Karadzic.
The raid on Kosta Cavoski’s apartment was carried around between 0400 and 0700 local time (0200 and 0500 GMT) on Friday in the town of Pale, 18 kilometres east of Sarajevo.
The operation was supported by local police of the smaller Bosnian entity of Republika Srpska, local media reported.
During the raid, Cavoski was interrogated and some of his documentation was seized.
Cavoski occasionally lives in Pale and works in the Law Faculty in eastern Sarajevo.
Because of his close relationship with Karadzic, police have kept him under surveillance and have already questioned him once in the past.
Thirteen years after the war, four war crimes suspects remain in hiding in Bosnia and Serbia, and EUFOR and NATO troops frequently search homes of their suspected supporters, in order to establish their whereabouts.
The four include the Bosnian Serb political and military leaders during the 1992-1995 Bosnian War, Radovan Karadzic and Ratko Mladic respectively, who have both been indicted on charges of genocide by the top war crimes court at The Hague
