Mladic set to be transferred to war crimes court
Istanbul: Bosnian Serb wartime general Ratko Mladic is expected to be transferred to the UN war crimes court in The Hague on Monday or Tuesday, the Anatolia news agency said on Sunday, quoting the tribunal`s acting president.
"Mladic might come Monday or Tuesday. Due to international law, he will stand in front of a judge immediately," said Mehmet Guney, acting president of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), according to Anatolia.
Guney said Mladic would be sent to the court after medical, administrative and financial procedures are completed about his transfer.
The Turkish judge noted that the panel that will try Mladic is ready as he has appointed three judges -- German, South African and Dutch.
"The trial presumably would last one and a half or two years," Guney said.
Mladic, 69, arrested last Thursday, was wanted by the ICTY for crimes including the massacre of some 8,000 Muslim men and boys in Srebrenica in 1995 and the bloody siege of Sarajevo during Bosnia`s 1992-95 war.
