A defiant Ratko Mladic plunged his Yugoslav war crimes tribunal arraignment into chaos Monday, repeatedly shouting at judges, defying their orders and refusing to enter pleas to 11 charges before the presiding judge threw him out of the hearing.
Former Bosnian Serb military chief Ratko Mladic plans to boycott Monday's hearing at the Yugoslav war crimes tribunal, where he is scheduled to enter pleas to charges including genocide, his Serbian lawyer said.
Ratko Mladic's lawyer said Thursday that he has a document proving the war crimes suspect has been battling cancer and that he was treated at a Serbian hospital in 2009.
Israel's recently retired spymaster said the country's military does not plan to attack Iran within the next two years, and the Israeli government should accept a Saudi proposal for Mideast peace.
Serbia on Tuesday extradited Ratko Mladic to the International Criminal Court in The Hague, where he will stand trial for genocide, 16 years after he was charged by the court for the killing of 8,000 Muslim men and boys in the worst massacre of civilians in Europe since World War II.
The lawyer for war crimes suspect Ratko Mladic said on Monday that he formally had filed an appeal against the former general's detention — a move that likely will delay Mr. Mladic's extradition for at least a day.
Ratko Mladic claims he did not order the massacre of 8,000 men and boys in the Bosnian town of Srebrenica when it fell during the 1992-95 war, his son said Sunday.
Former Bosnian Serb military commander Ratko Mladic knows he will be extradited to a U.N. war crimes tribunal but wants time to rest before the trip, his lawyer said Saturday.
Ratko Mladic, the ruthless Bosnian Serb military leader charged with orchestrating Europe's worst massacre of civilians since World War II, was arrested before dawn at a relative's home in a tiny Serbian village on Thursday after a 16-year hunt for the architect of what a war-crimes judge called "scenes from hell."
"I'm not a real candidate. I don't speak English," Mr. Saljic said. "He's insisting on me because I have been his lawyer all of his life."
wants to represent him, Milos Saljic, said the former general's behavior in court demonstrated that he is not mentally fit to stand trial.
