BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) — Serbia’s president says Goran Hadzic — the last war crimes fugitive from the Balkan wars — will be arrested.
Boris Tadic told The Associated Press on Tuesday that it was clear Serbia was fulfilling its international obligations — and that the country would continue to do so.
He says he’s sure Serbia will “arrest Mr. Hadzic in the next few weeks, a month, the year ahead of us.”
Hadzic is the wartime Croatian Serb rebel leader. He is accused by a United Nations war crimes court of the murder of hundreds of Croat civilians and the forcible deportation of around 28,000 Croats and other non-Serbs in Croatia during the 1991-1995 war.
Serbia last week arrested wartime Bosnian Serb army commander Ratko Mladic.
