Croatian President: Mladic should face charges in Croatia

Croatian President Ivo Josipovic has said that suspected war criminal Ratko Mladic should also face charges for crimes committed in Croatia during the wars in the 1990s.

Apart from war crimes committed in Bosnia, it would be just to try Ratko Mladic for the crimes committed in Croatia as well, Croatian President Ivo Josipovic told the country’s public broadcaster on Sunday evening.

“That would be absolutely just. Ratko Mladic must be tried for crimes in Croatia,” Josipovic said, adding that the arrest and the future trial of Ratko Mladic would contribute to reconciliation in the region and improvement of relations among the countries.

He added that Mladic’s arrest was also critical for putting an end to the war traumas and solving the fate of the missing people.
