Based on the plea agreement, Elez was sentenced to 15 years in prison by the Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina for serious crimes committed as part of an organized criminal group, and he was arrested in the "Doll" case.

Investigation suspended

Elez submitted the application for extradition to Serbia as soon as the legal possibilities for it became available, i.e. when the judicial authorities of Bosnia and Herzegovina suspended the investigation that was launched against him due to the suspicion that in 2018 and 2019 he participated in two murders, extortion, intimidation and other criminal acts.
