Two of Markovic's former police associates, Milan Radonjic and Branko Crni, also were sentenced to one year in jail, and a third, Nikola Curcic, received a sentence of one year and four months.

Now that former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic has appeared before the U.N. war crimes tribunal, pressure is building for the hand-over of other suspects ranging from well-hidden fugitives to Serbia's president.
