US deportee's lawyer denies war crimes allegationVegas lawyer for deported former Bosnian Serb police commander denies war crimes allegation
LAS VEGAS (AP) ' A Nevada immigration lawyer who fought the deportation of a former Bosnian Serb police commander accused of playing a role in a 1995 massacre of Bosnian Muslims says his client is no war criminal.
Attorney Don Chairez tells The Associated Press there's no evidence Dejan Radojkovic (DAY-jahn rah-DOHJ'-koh-vitsh) ever killed anybody.
Federal immigration and customs enforcement officials say Radojkovic was turned over to Bosnia-Herzegovina police following his arrival Thursday in Sarajevo.
Chairez says the 61-year-old and his children had a modest grocery business in Las Vegas before his arrest in 2009.
U.S. and Bosnian authorities say Radojkovic was a leader of a police brigade that rounded up about 200 Bosnian Muslim men for execution after Bosnian Serb forces overran U.N. peacekeepers in Srebrenica (sreh-breh-NEET'-sah).
