DID YOU KNOW?  -- Three years before the 1995 Srebrenica Genocide, Serbs torched Bosniak villages and killed at least 3,166 Bosniaks around Srebrenica. In 1993, the UN described the besieged situation in Srebrenica as a "slow-motion process of genocide." In July 1995, Serbs forcibly expelled 25,000 Bosniaks, brutally raped many women and girls, and systematically killed 8,000+ men and boys (DNA confirmed).

Hard-line Serbian nationalists would do anything to protect the indicted war crimes fugitive Ratko Mladic, even if that means manipulating, falsificating, or destroying the evidence...

PHOTO: Wartime Serb General Ratko Mladic, top fugitive sought by the International Criminal Tribunal, is regarded by many Serbs as "hero" for killing 10,000 to 15,000 civilians in Sarajevo - 1,500 of them children - as well as committing Srebrenica genocide and placing thousands of Bosniaks and Croats into concentration camps...
In order to prevent the capture of top war crimes fugitive, former Serb General Ratko Mladic, Serbs have somewhat changed their strategy. Instead of censoring evidence, like they had done in 2007 to avoid genocide judgment against Serbia at the International Court of Justice, now they destroyed Ratko Mladic's fingerprints from Serbian police files.

Serbian justice system is a joke. Srebrenica genocide survivors were sick to their stomach when they learned that family of recently arrested top fugitive, Radovan Karadzic, knew about his whereabouts and even assisted him to evade justice. Before his arrest, Karadzic's family lied on numerous occassions about not knowing anything about his whereabouts. Serbia refused to prosecute members of Karadzic's family, and the war crimes court in Belgrade never responded to our e-mails demanding the prosecution of these criminals who publicly admitted their involvement in directly helping Karadzic evade justice. When NATO raided house of Karadzic's wife, Ljiljana Zelen-Karadzic, they found letters from Belgrade with initials Dragan David Dabic. She was known by putting up fake tears for the media and pretending to be innocent victim who never knew where her husband was.

In 1999, Ratko Mladic submitted an application form for an ID card in Serbia with his fingerprints. Now, that part of the documentation has been mysteriously "lost." Mladic is regarded by many Serbs as a national hero due to his "heroic" slaughter of at least 8,000 unprotected Bosniaks (mostly men, as well as many children and some women), including putting thousands of Bosniak and Croat civilians in concentration camps (see photos), as well as the siege of Sarajevo - the longest siege in the history of modern warfare in which 10,000 - 15,000 people died, including 1,500 children. The fingertips are vital in the worldwide hunt to arrest Mladic and send him to the International Criminal Tribunal to face justice.

There is a $5 million reward issued for the information leading to the arrest of indicted war criminal Ratko Mladic.

Rasim Ljajic, the highest ranking Bosniak politician in Serbia, has confirmed that part of the information Ratko Mladic submitted for his ID card application has been mysteriously "lost." Ljajic is also the president of the National Council for Cooperation with the Hague Tribunal and leader of the Sanjak Democratic Party. Sanjak (or Sandzak) is a region lying along the border between Serbia and Montenegro where Bosniaks Muslims make up majority or 52.36% of population.

Ljajic stated that the information about mysteriously lost fingerprints "should not have come out in public," but said that allegedly an investigation is underway into the lost documentation.

Serbian Daily Blic writes that like Radovan Karadzic and Stojan Zupljanin, Ratko Mladic is using a false identity and documents in another name. Blic stated that this revelation has infuriated the new security services boss, Sasa Vukadinovic, on whose arrival it was ascertained that information was leaking out and reaching Mladic himself.

The Blic daily newspaper quoted Serbian war crimes prosecutor Vladimir Vukcevic as saying that Mladic's capture will be a much tougher job than the arrest in July of another genocide suspect, Radovan Karadzic.

"The inner circle of guards around Ratko Mladic includes people who are ready to use weapons at any moment. That is why the arrest of the most wanted ... suspect is much harder than was the case with Karadzic," - Vukcevic said.
He expects Mladic's quick arrest, but predicted that the fugitive is in fact not hiding in disguise like his recently captured partner in crime Radovan Karadzic.
