Austria extradited Croatia ex-PM to face corruption charges
Katherine Bacher at 12:00 AM ET

On July 11, 2011, an Austrian court approved the extradition of former Croatian prime minister Ivo Sanader, sending him back to Croatia to face corruption charges. Charges against Sanader included abuse of power, corruption and fraud, for which he was arrested in December 2010. Sanader continued to argue that he could not receive a fair trial in Croatia, but dropped the appeal for the extradition. After Sanader's trial was postponed for health reasons, he pleaded not guilty to charges of accepting bribes.
