TALLINN - Convicted Serb war criminal Milan Martic arrived in Estonia on Friday to serve his 35-year sentence there in an agreement between the government and the United Nations.
Martic, 55, is being jailed in the town of Tartu, 120 miles (190 kilometers) southeast of Tallinn, said Estonian Justice Minister Rein Lang.
The arrangement is in line with an agreement between the Estonian government and the U.N., which deals with the implementation of the verdicts by the Netherlands-based International Crimes Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, officials said.
No further details about the deal were released.
The former Croatian Serb leader was convicted for his role in a deadly campaign of ethnic cleansing in Croatia by the U.N. Yugoslav war crimes tribunal in 2007. He was held responsible for murder, torture, deportation and other crimes carried out by Serb forces.
Martic was the last president of the unrecognized republic of Krajina until 1995, when Croatian troops took control of the area.
