Mladic removed from UN war crimes court

2011-07-04 11:08
The Hague - The judge at a UN war crimes tribunal at The Hague ordered Ratko Mladic to be removed from the courtroom on Monday after the former Bosnian Serb army chief disrupted the reading out of the charges against him.

The judge went on to enter formal pleas of not guilty to the charges after Mladic refused to plead, saying he wanted more time and to be represented by other lawyers.

Arrested in May and extradited to The Hague after 16 years on the run, Mladic rejected war crimes charges against him as "obnoxious" and "monstrous" when he was formally charged at the Yugoslavia war crimes court last month.

Mladic interrupted judge Alphons Orie, as he read the first charge of genocide to him, prompting the judge to order his removal from court and briefly adjourn the hearing.
