[JURIST] Former Serbian prime minister Zoran Zivkovic [2003 BBC profile] said Friday that in 2003 CIA agents aided Serbian police in dozens of unsuccessful attempts to capture former commander General Ratko Mladic [BBC profile]. Mladic is accused of atrocities and genocide during the 1992-95 Bosnian war, and Serbia has been accused by the international community of harboring the former wartime commander. Zivkovic alleges that he made an agreement with the US government to coordinate efforts for at least six months and investigate all tips and reports related to Mladic's whereabouts. Zivkovic's successor, Prime Minister Vojislav Kostunica [official profile], has not continued the cooperation. Miladics whereabouts are still unknown and have become a central issue in Serbias efforts to gain membership into the European Union. The EU has made Mladic's extradition to face charges of war crimes [JURIST Hot Topic] before the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugolsavia a key condition for Serbia's membership.
