The spokeswoman for the UN war crimes court said she "doubts" that the former Bosnian Serb military chief will arrive in The Hague on Monday.

"I doubt that we will be seeing him today," Nerma Jelacic told AFP. "We are still waiting for the official notification from the Serbian authorities."

Monday is "the actual deadline for filing on the appeal" against the transfer, she said, adding: "It depends on how long after it will take for the Serbian autorithies to complete the proceedings."

Mladic, 69, has been indicted for genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes.

The ICTY indictment holds him responsible for a number of atrocities during the 1992-95 Bosnian war, including the Srebrenica massacre and the 44-month siege of the city of Sarajevo, during which 10,000 were killed.
