12.23pm: Interpol have issued an international arrest warrant for the former Croatian prime minister Ivo Sanader, who fled Croatia as WikiLeak cables
exposed corruption allegations against him.
As Ian Traynor reported, according to cables from the US Zagreb embassy Sanader, the centre-right politician who stood down suddenly as prime minister
in summer last year, features in several of the corruption cases currently terrorising the Croatian political class.
A friend of Sanader Jerko Rosinsaid, said on state-run today that the former leader was on a foreign business trip and would cut it short to return
But Croatian police issued warrant for Sanader and sent it overnight to Interpol. Police also searched his home, AP reports.
