Sir: As long as Radovan Karadzic remains at liberty in Bosnia, Slobodan Milosevic is unlikely to lose any sleep over his new status as an indicted war criminal.

Everyone in Sarajevo, including the hundreds of UN bureaucrats there, knows Karadzic's daily whereabouts, but they consider it impolitic to arrest him. Milosevic, who should also have been indicted for war crimes in Bosnia, knows the Western leaders well enough by now that he can count on them to favour spinelessness and appeasement at every opportunity.

So long as Europe wants to do deals with him, Milosevic knows his position is secure.
