Mladic will not be indicted for Croatia crimes

Serge Brammertz, the chief prosecutor at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, ICTY, has said that his office does not plan to expand the indictment against Mladic to include crimes committed in Croatia allegedly by troops under his command, including killings in Skabrnja in November 1991.

My office has no such intention, Brammertz said on Wednesday when answering questions at a news conference about whether the prosecutors would amend the indictment to include the responsibility of Mladic for war crimes in Croatia, notably the killings in Skabrnja.

During his trial at the UN tribunal, Mladic, the former Bosnian Serb military commander, will face charges including genocide and crimes against humanity committed in Bosnia during the war there. He will appear in court for the first time on Friday.
