A convicted war criminal who fled justice to start a new life in the UK faces his third trial in Croatia this week. Ethnic Serb Milan Spanovic spent years living undiscovered in Carshalton, Surrey, before he was deported back to Croatia to face charges of crimes against humanity. He had already been sentenced in his absence to 20 years jail for crimes committed during the bloody Balkans conflicts in the 1990s. But he was deported back to Croatia in 2009 after Surrey police arrested him on a shoplifting charge and his true identity was revealed. Spanovic, 50, denies all charges. At the third renewed trial it is expected to be heard whether he led a group of paramilitaries setting fire to the homes of ethnic Croats in 1991. "He was in a yellow car and was showing which houses to torch," witness Stjepan Fabac, 57, told the court at the earlier trial.
