ICE deports man wanted for attempted aggravated murder in Serbia

WASHINGTON – A Serbian man wanted for being the alleged getaway driver in a murder and attempted murder investigation was deported from the United States Monday. He was escorted to Belgrade, Serbia, after leaving Washington Dulles Airport, by officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Washington.

Milos Mihajlovic, 29, a native of Serbia, entered the United States in May 2008, as a nonimmigrant visitor. On June 20, 2011, Interpol issued a red notice for Mihajlovic for attempted aggravated murder and unlawful possession of arms and explosives due to his involvement in an April 2008 shooting which left one person dead and two others injured in Nis, Serbia. Four days later, following an encounter in northern Virginia with a Fairfax Police Department officer, he was turned over to ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Washington.

Mihajlovic was ordered removed by an immigration judge in November 2011. He appealed the decision to the Board of Immigration Appeals, who remanded the case back to the judge for additional evidence and testimony. The judge again ordered him removed March 4.

“Individuals like Mihajlovic, who come to the United States to find safe haven from crimes they committed in their native country, are not welcome here and will be removed,” said M. Yvonne Evans, field office director for ERO Washington.

This investigation and removal was coordinated with HSI Attaché Vienna, HSI Attaché Paris, the Regional Security Office Belgrade, Interpol Washington and Interpol Belgrade.
