Bosnian President angry over Plavsic release

Bosnian President angry over Plavsic release

The chairman of Bosnia's three-person Presidency says he has canceled a visit to Sweden because the government there granted an early release of war criminal Biljana Plavsic from jail although it did not have to.
Plavsic was released Tuesday from a Swedish prison after serving two-thirds of an 11-year jail term for crimes against humanity.
President Zeljko Komsic said Wednesday that he will not travel to Stockholm because although Swedish law offers the possibility of early release, it was the government that voluntarily chose to use that possibility.
Komsic was supposed to meet King Carl XVI Gustaf during a four-day visit starting November 4.
