  • [01] Bosnian Serb leaders interviewed by Mega Channel

    Bosnian Serb leaders and indicted war criminals, Radovan Karadzic and Gen. Ratko Mladic, were interviewed by the private Greek Mega television channel near Pale in Bosnia. Excepts from the interview, broadcasted last Sunday, follow.

    Mladic:

    "They have to understand I come at a great cost and that the people defend me."
    Mladic said the court should prosecute everyone who took part in the conflict, including NATO for its air raids against osnian Serbs.
    "This is a political court with no legal basis ... composed of a pot where the fate of people is cooked."
    Karadzic:
    "They will need many more troops than they have right now. I don't think they will dare (to arrest me) because they know that my security is very well designed. I think they are not capable of doing this without terrible losses from both sides."

    "I don't think they even should think of this (arresting me) because they are guests in our homes. We are hosts here."

    Regarding the NATO picture,
    "The photo is very poor, I can give them a much better photo ... They can't arrest me ... I am going to travel whenever I feel that I need to travel. I am meeting with my people all around the country, sometimes I am in public, sometimes I am not. I don't know how long this farce of court at the Hague will last."

    "We don't recognize this instant court at the Heague which has been created to prosecute the Serbs and only the Serbs ... It is a political rather than a judicial court."

    Bosnian Serb General Ratko Mladic was spotted skiing on Saturday, the first time he has been seen in weeks. Skiing on Mount Johorina, he gave an interview with the Greek Mega network, to be broadcast Sunday. "They have to understand one thing: that I am very expensive and that my people support me." A guard reported during the interview that NATO forces had surrounded the area:

    According to Mega reporter Theoodoris Roussopoulos, who conducted the interview with Mladic in early March, the military commander grew irritated when a guard reported that the area had been surrounded by NATO-led forces. "For the first one that approaches, use weapons. That will be a message for all the rest of them," Roussopoulos quoted Mladic as telling the guard.
    Clearly, however, no effort to detain Mladic was made.
