Hague tribunal issues warrants for Karadzic, Mladic

The International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia put out international arrest warrants for Karadzic and his military counterpart, General Ratko Mladic, Naša Borba and Oslobodjenje reported on July 12. The move is expected to have few practical consequences and is largely a political and psychological attempt to keep up pressure on the Serbs and on the international community. The two men have already been indicted twice for war crimes and have publicly visited Serbia, although existing warrants are theoretically valid there. Bosnian Prime Minister Hasan Muratovic said Karadzic and Mladic are still free on Bosnian Serb territory despite the presence in Bosnia of 60,000 NATO troops. He said the two men's freedom shows a "lack of determination of the international community," AFP reported on July 11.
