Interpol has released an alert for the arrest of an alleged war criminal who went missing in Australia last week.
Former Serb paramilitary commander Dragan Vasiljkovic, also known as Captain Dragan and Daniel Snedden, is wanted for war crimes allegedly committed during his role in the Balkans in the 1990s.
Vasiljkovic went on the run late last month after the High Court quashed an appeal and paved the way for him to be extradited to Croatia.
Vasiljkovic had appealed against the 2006 extradition request, arguing his political beliefs would mean he would be dealt with unfairly in Croatia.
Now international policing agency Interpol has released a red notice for his arrest.
A spokesman for Home Affairs Minister Brendan O’Connor says the Australian Federal Police has used a number of resources in its attempt to capture the alleged fugitive.
If found in Australia, Vasiljkovic will be detained in custody until Mr O’Connor decides whether to approve the extradition.
