Aleksander Mezyaev will defend Mladić

Aleksander Mezyaev, who was on Slobodan Milošević and Vojislav Šešelj’s defense teams, will be Ratko Mladić’s defense counsel.

Mezyaev has been interested in leading the defense team ever since Mladić was arrested in the village of Lazarevo.

Mezyaev is an international law professor at the Moscow State University and he is believed to be well-versed in the Hague Tribunal’s work.

Besides being in Milošević’s defense team, Mezyaev was also Šešelj’s legal adviser.
