After 16 years on the run, Ratko Mladic finally brought to an international tribunal for war crimes. Mladic is one who allegedly responsible for the massacre of 8000 Muslims in Sebrenica, Bosnia, in 1995.

Mladic intelligence agents detained in a raid before dawn at a family home in a village in northern Serbia. This action supported the Serbian government as proof they are eligible for membership into the European Union.

Mladic's 69-year-old is one of the world's most wanted fugitives. He is a former supreme commander of the Bosnian Serb army during the Bosnian war between 1992-1995. More than 100,000 people were killed, and 1.8 million people displaced kibat war.

International Criminal Tribunal indicted Mladic in The Hague, Netherlands, for genocide, crimes against humanity and crimes of the role of Muslims in eastern Bosnia massacre and invasion of Sarajevo. On Thursday morning, Mladic brought to court for extradition in Belgrade. Through his lawyer, he states will not recognize the UN tribunal.

The former military commander was wearing a blue jacket and hat, gray hair out a bit and bring a towel in his left hand. Through television, Mladic came to say good morning to someone in the court and his bodyguard said, "Come on, General."

Mailing Saljic, Mladic lawyer, said his client's trial be shortened due to the weak condition that trouble communicating. "He's aware under arrest, knew where he was, and he claimed not recognize the Hague tribunal," said Saljic.
