The Prosecutor General's Office of the Russian Federation granted the request of the Ministry of Justice of Bosnia and Herzegovina for the extradition of Nikodin Komadara for his criminal prosecution under Article 36 (para 2, subpara 2) (murder) of the Criminal Code of Republika Srpska.

The check established that the District Prosecutor's Office in East Sarajevo of Republika Srpska, Bosnia and Herzegovina, is investigating the criminal matter against Nikodin Komadara.

He is charged with shooting a bus conductor who was getting off with other passengers at the bus station in the city of Pale, Republika Srpska, Bosnia and Herzegovina, in June 1999. The victim died as a result of his injuries.

At the end of August 1999, the District Court of East Sarajevo of Republika Srpska, Bosnia and Herzegovina, ordered a preventive measure in the form of detention in respect of Komadara, and in February 2003, issued an arrest warrant, and he was put on the wanted list.

Komadara's actions are punishable under Russian criminal law and are covered by Article 105 (2 “e”) of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (murder committed in manner dangerous to the public). The statute of limitations for criminal prosecution under the laws of the Russian Federation and Bosnia and Herzegovina has not expired.

The decision of the Prosecutor General's Office of the Russian Federation to extradite Komadara entered into legal force, and therefore the Federal Penitentiary Service was instructed to carry out his handover.

Today, accompanied by a special convoy, Nikodin Komadara will be transported to his country of origin.
