Mladic arrest: Amnesty response

In response to news reports of the arrest of war crimes suspect Ratko Mladic, in relation to the crimes committed in Srebrenica, Bosnia and Herzegovina, where at least 8 000 Muslim men and boys were killed in 1995, Widney Brown, Senior Director of International Law at Amnesty International said:

“It took more than 15 years but at last the people who suffered have hope that he will be brought to justice.

“The Serbian authorities need to renew their efforts to arrest the remaining indicted suspect General Goran Hadzic believed to be at large in either Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina and to bring him to justice.”
