Cape Town - Serbian Dobrosav Gavric is to hear next month when extradition proceedings in the Cape Town Magistrate’s Court are to commence for his deportation back to Serbia.

Gavric fled Serbia to escape a 35-year prison sentence for a triple murder, of which one of the victims was a Serbian "warlord" known as Arkan.

Gavric, 38, made his umpteenth appearance in court on Monday when magistrate Mandi Tyulu remanded him to June 12.

Gavric has two cases pending - the extradition proceedings, before magistrate Ingrid Arntsen, and fraud charges pertaining to his illegal entry into South Africa five years ago.

He faces five fraud charges, one contravention of the Immigration Act, and one charge relating to his illegal possession of a 9mm Glock pistol,

On the fraud counts, three relate to his illegal arrival in South Africa in 2007 under the false name and passport of Sasa Kovacevic.

A fourth fraud charge alleges that he falsely identified himself to the Sandton police as Sasa Kovacevic in December 2009.

The fifth fraud charge alleges that he applied for a driver’s license in September 2009 under the same false name.

Gavric’s recent application for South African asylum was refused and his defence team then appealed the refusal.

According to prosecutor Cecil Engel, the refusal of home affairs to grant him political asylum is currently under review and the review proceedings have not yet been finalised.
