British court discharges former Bosnian leader accused by Serbia of war crimes.

    His defence lawyers had previously argued that two previous investigations found he had no case to answer and there was insufficient evidence to warrant a trial.

    They have also contested the suggestion that Ganic was in charge at the time of the attacks.

    Ganic was arrested at Heathrow Airport on March 1 as he attempted to leave Britain after attending a degree ceremony at the University of Buckingham.

    Serbia has said Ganic and a number of other people are suspected of war crimes, and blames them for the 1992 attack on a Yugoslav convoy in Sarajevo, when more than 40 soldiers were killed.
