Ratko Mladic, who is accused of orchestrating a horrific campaign of ethnic cleansing during the bloody civil war that ripped apart Yugoslavia, showed no remorse as his war crimes trial opened Wednesday, at one point even appearing to threaten victims in the court. The former general drew his hand across his neck as if cutting a throat while staring at victims of the war that introduced the phrase “ethnic cleansing.” At other times, the man accused of being “the Butcher of Bosnia” stared at them, fire in his eyes, and he once growled at the survivors.
There a supporters of Mladic in his home area who think the trial is a miscarriage of justice.
