NBC News — A spokeswoman for the Yugoslav war crimes tribunal in the Hague said Friday that they had full confidence in Serbian authorities to make the right decision concerning the extradition of General Ratko Mladic. The Bosnian Serb military leader was arrested Thursday after 16 years on the run.
He is facing international war crimes charges, including the slaughter of eight-thousand muslim men and boys in the Bosnian town of Srebrenica during Bosnia's 1992 to 95 war. Mladic was in court Friday in Belgrade where officials there determined he was fit enough to be transferred to The Netherlands to the United Nations war crimes tribunal.
