UN chief war crimes prosecutor Serge Brammertz praised the Serbian authorities before the UN Security Council for the arrest and extradition to the Hague of former Bosnian Serb military leader Ratko Mladic, RTS has reported. Brammertz said that the arrest meant Serbia had complied with the key condition for completing cooperation with the war crimes court. This is also one of the turning points in the history of the tribunal which is preparing for the trial, the chief prosecutor said. Brammertz noted that the former leader of Croatian Serbs, Goran Hadzic, remains at large and called for his apprehension in the shortest possible term. We note that Mladic's arrest has long been a stumbling block in Serbia's EU integration process.
