Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) deported a Bosnian man from Calgary this week.
CBSA officials escorted Elvir Pobric, a man wanted for two murders in Bosnia-Herzegovina, to Bosnia Monday to face the allegations.
“We welcome the news that this murderer has been removed from Canada and is in the hands of the appropriate Bosnian authorities,” said Public Safety Minister Vic Toews.
“Our government remains committed to ensuring our communities are safe, and that Canada does not become a safe haven for fugitives trying to escape justice.”
Information from the public helped CBSA to arrest Pobric on April 28, 2009, in Calgary after a decade in Canada.
He fled Bosnia amid the chaos in the Balkans at the time, after being convicted of killing a taxi driver and his partner-in-crime during a robbery.
