Last Yugoslav war crimes fugitive transferred to the Hague

Goran Hadzic

The last remaining fugitive indicted by the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) is now in the custody of the UN.

Goran Hadzic was transferred to The Hague Friday, after being arrested two days earlier in Serbia. He had been on the run for seven years.

Hadzic was indicted by The Hague in 2004 for crimes against humanity and war crimes committed in eastern Slavonia, Croatia, between 1991 and 1992.

Serge Brammertz is the chief war crimes prosecutor with the ICTY.

"Hadzic will be called upon to answer for the deaths of hundreds and the displacement of thousands. For the victims of the crimes alleged against Hadzic we hope that some measure of redress will come from insuring that Goran Hadzic answers the charges against him."

Hadzic will appear before a judge Monday.
