Stojan Zupljanin was born in 1951 in Maslovare, a town in Bosnia-Herzegovina. As commander of the Bosnian Serb police during the Bosnian Serb war, Zupljanin had operational control over the police forces responsible for the detention camps where thousands of prisoners were allegedly held in horrific conditions and many were murdered. Zupljanin is also alleged to have played a central role in the destruction of Bosnian Muslim and Bosnian Croat communities in the Autonomous Region of Krajina. Intelligence reports have suggested that Zupljanin is within reach of authorities in Serbia and Montenegro. In October 2005, Zupljanin’s home was raided by local police and by E.U. peacekeepers, but they failed to find him.
