War crimes suspect Ratko Mladic will make his first appearance before the UN war crimes tribunal in the Hague on Friday at 10am.
Mladic was placed in an isolation cell at the Hague Tribunal’s detention unit on Tuesday night as he awaited medical exams before his initial appearance in front of the court.
Mladic, 69, will undergo a complete medical examination which is to be carried out by medical personnel of the detention unit. His health will be monitored continuously and he will be provided any treatment needed, the Tribunal said in a statement.
Mladic will face charges of genocide and other war crimes and crimes against humanity committed during the war in Bosnia in his trial at The Hague.
The date of Mladic’s first court appearance is expected to be announced shortly.
