Bosnian Serb War-Crimes Suspect Surrenders

A Bosnian Serb war-crimes suspect accused of genocide in the 1995 massacre of up to 8,000 Muslim men and boys surrendered Saturday, the government said. Ljubisa Beara, who was a colonel and the chief of security for the Bosnian Serb Army during Bosnia’s Srebrenica massacre, was extradited to the U.N. war crimes tribunal in The Hague, Netherlands, a government statement said. Beara was indicted for allegedly killing Muslim prisoners and forcing the transfer of tens of thousands of women and children from the enclave. He took part in the decapitation of 80 to 100 Muslims in the town of Potocari on July 12, 1995, the indictment alleges. Beara is accused of being part of a “joint criminal enterprise” headed by Gen. Ratko Mladic, then commander of the Bosnian Serb Army, who is now one of the tribunal’s two most-wanted men. Beara surrendered “to protect the interests of the state and those of his family,” the statement said. Full Story
