“Running from justice”

A hat-tip to George Patsourakos’ always informative blog of current events Theology and Society (here). I’m surprised Serbian monasteries weren’t mentioned as possible places where Mladic might be hiding as was the case with Karadzic.

Serbian Court Clears 10 of Sheltering Mladic; Arrest of Mladic Is Required for Serbia to Join EU

Due to a lack of evidence, a Belgrade court yesterday (December 10, 2010) cleared 10 people accused of sheltering Ratko Mladic, who is wanted internationally for a genocide trial, according to the Earth Times website. Prosecutors said they plan to appeal the decision.

Accused of human atrocities — including the massacre of Muslim men and boys in Srebrenica and shelling and sniping of Sarajevo in the 1992-95 Bosnian War — Mladic is believed to be hiding in Serbia.

At least between 2002 and 2006, Serbian authorities knew where Mladic was hiding.

Mladic’s prolonged run from justice is one of the crucial obstacles in Serbia’s bid for membership in the European Union (EU).

The EU has asserted to Serbia that it will not be allowed to step closer to EU membership until Mladic is arrested and handed to the International Criminal Tribunal for former Yugoslavia (ICTY).
