I'd like to. I'm guessing I will have to do some real finding to get one in Tucson.

Its been more than 6 years since Scharf started this thread, but there finally is a resolution to Mladic's trial:

Ratko Mladic guilty of genocide, sentenced to life in prison

By James Masters, CNN

Mladic convicted of war crimes

(CNN)Former Bosnian Serb wartime army leader Ratko Mladic has been sentenced to life in prison Wednesday after being found guilty of genocide over atrocities committed during the Bosnian war from 1992 to 1995.

Verdict proceedings had been interrupted earlier when the 74-year-old's legal team claimed that his blood pressure was too high to continue.
After outbursts from Mladic, Judge Alphons Orie, who was delivering a summation of the case, ordered the removal of the ex-general, telling him he could monitor proceedings by audio and video.
Mladic's legal team had asked for proceedings to be halted or for the summation of the case to be skipped, which the Judge refused.

Mladic was charged with two counts of genocide, and nine crimes against humanity and war crimes for his role in the conflict in the former Yugoslavia from 1992 to 1995, during which 100,000 people were killed and another 2.2 million displaced. He was found not guilty on one charge of genocide.

The trial, which opened in 2012, took place at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia in The Hague, Netherlands. The ad-hoc court was established to prosecute crimes committed during the Balkans conflict.

Mladic was accused of orchestrating a campaign of ethnic cleansing, including the slaughter of thousands of Muslim men and boys at Srebrenica in July 1995. It is the worst massacre to have taken place in Europe since the Second World War.

Arrested in 2011, Mladic's trial has lasted 530 days, included more than 500 witnesses and nearly 10,000 exhibits.

Before the case was adjourned last December, prosecutors recommended a life sentence. Mladic had previously referred to the court as "satanic" and labeled the charges against him as "obnoxious."

I just wonder what took them so long.

I know that the article said they went through "more than 500 witnesses and nearly 10,000 exhibits" but the Nuremberg trials lasted less than 11 months and they managed to try 24 men.

Justice is laid back ...

... Mladic's days in the Scheveningen prison in The Hague have been taken up with playing chess, reading history books, watching TV and exercise.
His usual chess rival is former Bosnian Serb President Radovan Karadzic, who was also convicted of genocide and war crimes in the Bosnian war in 2016 ...

Good news for Serbia. How some style criminals like Mladic, Karadzic or Šešelj as national heroes escapes me.

I welcome this news. Mladic will be behind the bars the rest of his life as he well deserves. :D

So it goes.
