Sjefaktor for Jugoslavia-tribunalet, Carla del Ponte, sier det er på tide å slutte med skuespillet, og fakke Radovan Karadzic og Ratko Mladic.

Ponte går langt i å antyde at det ikke har vært vilje til å pågripe de to krigsforbryterne.

«For ten years, the international community has been playing cat-and-mouse with Karadzic and Mladic … For much of this time the cats chose to wear blindfolds and to allow the mice to run from one hole to another,» Carla Del Ponte told the UN Security Council.
It is now time for the «cats to remove their blindfolds» and for the authorities in Serbia, Montenegro and Bosnian Serb-led Republika Srpska to cooperate and locate and arrest the two fugitives and turn them over to the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in The Hague, she said.

Etter at den kroatiske generalen Ante Gotovina ble tatt, blir det mer og mer pinlig at de to største forbryterne er på frifot.

By contrast, Del Ponte said there had been «grave systemic deficiencies in the efforts made to capture Karadzic and Mladic.»
«There is no coordination mechanism, there is not even the desire to coordinate the various activities, not to speak about sharing the most basic information,» she added.(afp)
