“The chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) was in the Bosnian capital Sarajevo on Monday ahead of a progress report to be delivered to the UN Security Council.

Serge Brammertz met the Bosniak member of the country’s tripartite presidency, Bakir Izetbegovic, to discuss cooperation in prosecuting war crimes cases in the former Yugoslavia.

The meeting comes ahead of an anticipated verdict on former Bosnian Serb general Ratko Mladic which is set for Nov. 22.

Mladic faces charges of genocide, including the killing of 8,000 Bosnian Muslim men and boys in Srebrenica in July 1995, plus the targeting of civilians during his forces’ three-year siege of Sarajevo.” (Anadolu)
