Subject: [Stop-traffic] Seeking more info about two recent arrests in Slovenia and Croatia

On 27 November police arrested Josip Loncaric near Ljubljana. A
Zagreb daily "Jutarnji list" has described him as "the biggest dealer
in human traffic in Central Europe". Does anyone have more
information about this case and if Loncaric is being brought to trial?
Apparently, he has Croatian and Slovenian citizenship.

Also, another recent arrest is announced in the brief news piece
below from RFE/RL. Does anyone have more information on this
case?

I am interested in finding out how effective investigation and
prosecution measures are with respect to both these cases. Also, I
am curious if these arrests are the result of pro-active
investigations or if they are dependent on the testimony of
witnesses/victims.Thank you in advance for any information.

Best wishes,

Jyothi
