26th May 2011, Comments 0 comments

Serbia is not doing enough to arrest the Bosnian Serb wartime military chief Ratko Mladic, a report by the chief prosecutor at the UN's court for the former Yugoslavia said Thursday.

Prosecutor Serge Brammertz said the capture of the wartime fugitive was Serbia's biggest obligation.

"The capture is the biggest obligation of Serbia. Until now efforts by Serbia to detain fugitives have not been sufficient," Brammertz said in the report sent to the UN Security Council, details of which were published on the Internet site EUObserver.

Special council to the prosecutor, Frederick Swinnen, confirmed to AFP the contents of the report published in EUObserver.

Details of the report emerged just before a Belgrade radio station said that a man believed to be Mladic had been arrested in Serbia.
