Solidarity with Ejub Ganic

1. Dr Ejub Ganic was President of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina from 1997 to 1999 and again from 2000 to 2001. He is a distinguished academic and Bosnian statesman. 2. On March 1, 2010 he was arrested at Heathrow Airport in London over alleged war crimes after an arrest warrant was issued by the Serbian Ministry of Internal Affairs in connection with an incident in Sarajevo in May 1992 - see this link for the details http://blogs.salaam.co.uk/article.php?story=20100417213239811 3. His court hearings resumed in London in July 2010 and there is an attempt to extradite him to Serbia for trial. This would be a travesty - not just because there is no case against him [in the view of the International Crimes Tribunal in The Hague] but it would be like placing a lamb amidst vengeful and hungry lions. 4. The UK government willingly complied to Serbian demands for Dr Ganic's detention in London. If this is an instance of Britain seeking to play the honest broker – that if Serbs are being arraigned for crimes against humanity, then so too should Bosniaks - then it is utterly misplaced. In fact, there are continuing deep and converging interests that have continuously led to unjust and callous disregard for the Bosniaks, and favoured treatment for the Serbs. 5. Is there a moral conscience in Britain that can be aroused? YES!!! There is need to mobilize public opinion to draw attention to the past track record of British authorities and to shame them to release Dr Ganic with honour and dignity. Sign this petition to show your solidarity with Ejub Ganic.
