Ban Ki-moon welcomes arrest of Goran Hadzic
United Nations: UN Secretary General Ban
Ki-moon welcomed on Wenesday the arrest of Serbian Goran Hadzic, the
Croatian Serb rebel leader and the last remaining fugitive
wanted by the UN war crimes court in The Hague.
Ban spokesman Martin Nesirky said the secretary
general "welcomes today`s arrest" and "commends" Serbian
President Boris Tadic and the Serbian authorities for their
"leadership in ending impunity for those indicted for serious
violations of international humanitarian law.
"Mr Hadzic`s apprehension sends a powerful message
that those who are alleged to have committed such crimes
cannot evade justice," said Nesirky, quoting Ban.
Hadzic, 52, faces 14 counts of crimes against humanity
and war crimes for the murder of hundreds of civilians and the
deportation of tens of thousands of Croats by troops under his
command during the 1991-95 Croatian war.
