Hague prosecutors consider combining Karadzic, Mladic trials

THE HAGUE, The Netherlands -- The Hague tribunal prosecutor's office is mulling whether to combine the trial of former Bosnian Serb military commander Ratko Mladic with that of former Bosnian Serb political leader Radovan Karadzic, Frederick Swinnen, political adviser to the prosecutor, said on Monday (May 30th). He pointed out that all options are under consideration at the moment, but no decision has been made. Karadzic's war crimes trial started in 2009 while Mladic's extradition to The Hague is pending.
