Ratko Mladic , the most wanted
fugitive of the International Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia ( ICTY ), was arrested last week
after 16 years on the run. As former commander of the Republika Srpska Army from
1992--96, he was indicted by the ICTY following the capture of Srebrenica in July 1995, and
charged by ICTY Judge Richard Goldstone with genocide, crimes against humanity and violations of laws
and practices of warfare from 1992 to 1995 in Bosnia and Herzegovina . The
same indictment charged Radovan Karadzic , president of the Republika
Srpska and Mladic's supreme commander.
