Mladic to Appear in War Crimes Court This Friday; Accused of Leading Massacre of 7500 Muslims

The Dutch News website reports today (June 1, 2011) that former Bosnian Serb general Ratko Mladic will appear before the Yugoslavia war crimes tribunal in The Hague on Friday, June 3.

Mladic, 69, arrived in the Netherlands by plane on May 31. He is being held in Scheveningen prison.

Mladic -- who was arrested on May 26 following 16 years on the run -- faces genocide charges over the 1992-95 Bosnian War.

The general is accused of being behind the massacre of at least 7,500 Bosnian Muslim men and boys at Srebrenica in 1995. The enclave was under the protection of Dutch troops at the time.
