Police step up search for Ratko Mladic
Police raided the Belgrade apartment of Ratko Mladic's son yesterday, after the chief UN war crimes prosecutor said Serbia is not doing enough to capture the genocide suspect who has been on the run since 1995.
War crimes prosecutor Vladimir Vukcevic said Darko Mladic's flat was searched for "clues pointing to the location where [Ratko] Mladic is hiding."
Former chief of military intelligence Aco Tomic was summoned for questioning on suspicion he helped Mladic evade justice in the mid-2000s by sheltering him in army barracks, the prosecutors said. There were no immediate reports if Tomic's questioning or the search of a drab, communist-type neighbourhood – one in a series of such raids in recent years – gave clues on Mladic's whereabouts. He is wanted for war crimes committed in Bosnia's 1992-95 war.
Chief UN prosecutor Serge Brammertz this month reportedly urged those hunting the wartime Bosnian Serb army commander – last seen in Belgrade in 2006 – to intensify efforts, or his next report to the UN Security Council about Serbia's cooperation with the international war crimes tribunal could be negative.
