After Mladic’s arrest, Goran Hadzic is now Serbia’s priority

The arrest of Ratko Mladic shifts the spotlight to Goran Hadzic, who is now the most wanted man in the Balkans.

Serbian Deputy War Crimes Prosecutor Bruno Vekaric said that search for Hadzic is now the country’s priority, explaining that Serbia will not stop until Goran Hadzic is captured.

Hadzic, the wartime leader of the Serbs in Croatia, has been indicted by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia for war crimes committed during the conflict there in the early 1990s. He has been in hiding since being indicted by the Tribunal in June 2004.

Hadzic is charged with trying to remove Croats from the parts of Croatia claimed by ethnic Serbs as part of a joint criminal enterprise. He faces allegations of the persecution, detention, and murder of hundreds of Croats, as well as the deportation or forced transfer of tens of thousands of Croats and other non-Serbs.
