MLADIC: I WAS PROTECTED BY THE SERBIAN ORTHODOX CHURCH
|PHOTO: BELGRADE, SERBIA - MAY 29: Ratko Mladic's son, Darko Mladic, gives a speech during a rally organized by the ultra nationalist Serbian Radical Party in front of the Parliament building on May 29, 2011 in Belgrade, Serbia. He is protesting the arrest of his father and his upcoming extradition to the Hague Tribunal on charges of the Bosnian Genocide.|
Ratko Mladic, indicted for the Bosnian Genocide in relation to massacres at Srebrenica, Prijedor and other districts in Bosnia, says the Serbian Orthodox Church protected him and even planned his funeral in the Orthodox Monastery of "Sveta Melanija" in Zrenjanin, near Belgrade.
Judging from the text appearing in Sarajevo's "Dnevni Avaz", Mladic's son Darko acknowledged the Srebrenica genocide, but added that his father told him that "he had nothing to do with the Srebrenica genocide" and "he did not order genocide that occurred there."
