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).

Although at his first appearance, Bosnian Genocide suspect Ratko Mladic called the charges against him "obnoxious" and told the judges that he was "gravely ill," there is no indication that he is suffering a terminal illness but he is still undergoing tests in prison.

"What I can tell about his claims that he is terminally or seriously ill, is that the rule is that doctors in the detention unit have a duty and obligation to inform the registrar should there be any indications of a life-threatening situation," Nerma Jelacic told reporters.

"To date no such situation has been reported in regards to Mladic, although we have performed a number of medical examinations with him," added Jelacic, spokeswoman for the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia. "As you could see from his appearance in the courtroom on Friday, it appears that he has neglected his health over the years that he spent on the run," Jelacic said.

"Things have been proceeding smoothly," Jelacic said. "We are still undergoing medical examinations with him."
