The arrest of Ratko Mladic on 26 May signified a key victory for both the International Criminal Tribunal for Yugoslavia, and the Republic of Serbia’s President, Boris Tadić. However, perhaps inevitably, after 16 years at-large, the timing of Mladic’s arrest was questioned, coming as it did on the day that the EU’s High Representative for Foreign Affairs, Catherine Ashton, was visiting Serbia, and shortly before the ICTY President Judge Patrick Robinson and Prosecutor Serge Brammertz were due to update the Security Council on the ICTY’s recent work.

On January 10, Serge Brammertz, the deputy prosecutor in charge of investigations at the International Criminal Court (ICC), was given a six-month temporary assignment as head of the UN's fact-finding committee on the assassination of the former Lebanese Prime Minister. Since his departure, Congolese NGOs, which had already advised the Court to issue arrest warrants before the December 18 referendum, are concerned that the ICC "legal proceedings will be stalled" in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). In a country where individuals suspected of war crimes hold political office, and whose terms may be renewed following the March 5 legislative elections, the question is: why is the ICC waiting to issue its first arrest warrants in the DRC?

A failure to arrest Bosnian Serb military chief Ratko Mladic, wanted for genocide and war crimes, would be the "worst of signals" for international justice, the UN war crimes prosecutor Serge Brammertz said on Monday.

The former Bosnian Serb military commander, 68, is the most wanted fugitive of the International Criminal Court for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) based in The Hague.

"The non-arrest of Mladic would be the worst of signals for international justice" and "to those still out there", the court's prosecutor Serge Brammertz told reporters.

When Serge Brammertz took over as Chief Prosecutor for the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in 2008, Radovan Karadzic was still on the run. Today he’s on trial, but two other men are still at large. Brammertz told the IJT why it’s so important to bring them to justice.

On September 25, the United Nations commission investigating the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri published a new provisional report. However, since the 34-day war between Israel and the Hezbollah in July-August, the commission has come under greater pressure. Syria, which is a target of the international investigation, is trying to thwart the commission's efforts, while its Lebanese ally, Hezbollah, is weakening the central government.
