RTS FILM ON SREBRENICA GENOCIDE AND KARADZIC/MLADIC DRAMA
"The aim of the documentary is to show the extent of genocide and war crimes committed in Srebrenica, which is considered the gravest crime in Europe after World War II, to the general public of Serbia."
The only problem? In the Balkans and Europe, people are insanely obsessed with soccer. On the 11 of July, the eyes of Europe will be glued to their TV screens to watch the championship finale of 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.
Meanwhile, Radovan Karadzic blamed the Western journalists for giving the Bosnian Serbs bad image. As Karadzic put it, they were ‘susceptible to the charms of young Bosnian women’ the Bosnian government ‘planted’ as interpreters.
In other news, the family of Gen. Ratko Mladic has asked the Serbian government to declare him officially dead. The family actually knows where Gen. Mladic is hiding, but they are not telling anyone. Remember the fake tears of Radovan Karadzic's wife? Serbian justice system never prosecuted Radovan Karadzic's family members for helping him evade justice for 13 years. If Serbian secret police wanted to capture Gen. Ratko Mladic, they could have done it long time ago. Except occassional raids on his son's house in Belgrade, nobody seems to monitor movements of his family members. Mladic is reportedly very sick, and somebody has to supply him with medicine / prescription drugs, food, shelter. Mladic family's decision to declare him dead came after Serbian police seized 18 diaries totalling 3,500 pages in a raid on the apartment of his wife Bosiljka in Belgrade four months ago.
According to CBC news, "The family's lawyer, Milos Saljic, reportedly told the Vecernje Novosti newspaper that there had been no reliable information about Mladic's whereabouts for more than five years, a key requirement of declaring a missing person dead."
