The former Bosnian Serb army commander Ratko Mladic will be arrested and delivered to the Yugoslavia war crimes tribunal in The Hague before the end of the month according to a Belgrade newspaper quoting ‘government sources’, report a number of news agencies on Thursday.
The Belgrade paper says that the current Serbian cabinet hopes the arrest and extradition of Mladic, along with that of former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic last month, will open the way for EU membership.
Both Karadzic and Mladic are accused of genocide and crimes against humanity, including the massacre of 8,000 Bosnian Muslim men and boys in Srebenica, during the Bosnian war in the early 1990s.
