Bosnian Nationals Arrested In Loves Park

These homes are two of the last known addresses for Vlado Kecojevic and Radovan Jankovic. US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or "ICE," claims they and another man named Dalibor Butina lied about their previous service in the Bosnian-Serb military when they applied for a green card. That military was involved in the genocide of thousands of Bosnian Muslims in the mid 90s...

ICE has apprehended a fourth man named Branislar Cancar...he currently lives in Schiller Park. All four will stand trial in a federal court. If the allegation sticks, and the men did in fact serve in the Bosnian military at the time of the genocide, they will lose their refugee status and be deported.

    On 9/11 when the announcement of the tragedy, the Bosnian children at Conklin School clapped and cheered. More of these families should be checked out.
