Wrongly arrested war crimes suspect granted residency

A Serbian man who was wrongly arrested for suspected war crimes has been granted permanent residency in the UK.

Mile Bosnic, 54, from Gloucester, faced extradition to Croatia after living in the UK with his wife Rose and their children for 11 years.

A judge in Croatia later discontinued the investigation and he was released without charge.

The couple's daughter Bianca, 29, said of the experience: "It's been tough, it's something you see in the movies."

"You just don't think you'd ever go through anything like it. It was awful."

She said it was great news that her parents had been granted residency and thanked people for their support.

Mr Bosnic was arrested on 25 March for suspected war crimes in Croatia.

A Home Office spokesman said a judge in Croatia discontinued the investigation on 2 April.
