War crimes fugitive Mladic said to be negotiating surrender deal with ICTY

[JURIST] Outspoken Serbian human rights activist Natasa Kandic [Time profile] of Belgrade's the Humanitarian Law Center [advocacy website] said Monday that war crimes suspect Gen. Ratko Mladic [BBC profile] is preparing his surrender to the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) [official website]. Though the Serbian government denies negotiations for Mladic's surrender are occurring, two popular Serbian newspapers, Nezavisne Novine and Kurir [article in Serbian], support Kandic's claims. Kandic believes that some of the issues being worked out between Mladic and the ICTY are the location of his surrender, where he would serve his sentence, and financial stability for his family.
