Serbs cry foul over Mladic extradition

Unsurprisingly, there is only one story dominating the media in Serbia.

Ratko Mladic may now be awaiting trial in a cell at The Hague but the question of whether his extradition was right or wrong is filling newspaper column inches and dividing opinion in Belgrade.

Belgrade resident, Nikola Tintev: “The sad thing is that he is a sick man, probably half paralysed. Instead of having medical care, he will now probably end up like Milosevic.”

“If it wasn’t for Mladic in Bosnia, around Srebrenica, there wouldn’t be a Bosnian Serb republic and who knows where the borders would be now,” said Goran Miljevic.

Daniejela Topalovic added: “It makes no sense, they just sell our people for a few pennies and get nothing in return.”

According to a poll carried out just before his arrest, most Serbs said they were against extraditing Mladic.
