Karadzic seeks to compel Mladic to testify

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic is seeking a subpoena to compel his one-time military chief, Gen. Ratko Mladic, to testify in his defense during his genocide trial at a United Nations war crimes court.

Karadzic filed a motion Thursday requesting a subpoena for Mladic to testify on his behalf, setting up the prospect of two of the men accused of orchestrating the worst Serb atrocities of the 1992-95 Bosnian war meeting in a Yugoslav war crimes tribunal courtroom for the first time.

In the motion, Karadzic says he has “made efforts to obtain the voluntary cooperation of General Mladic without success.”

Both men originally were indicted together for allegedly masterminding Serb crimes, but are now standing trial separately because Karadzic was arrested before Mladic.
