A BOSNIAN Serb accused of taking part in the massacre of 8000 Muslim men and boys at Srebrenica in July 1995 has been arrested, the Bosnian war crimes court said today.
Branislav Medan "is suspected of having committed the crime of genocide as a member of a unit of the interior ministry of the Republika Srpska (RS, the Serbian entity in Bosnia) at Kravica" in eastern Bosnia, in the Srebenica region, the court said in a statement.

Under the Dayton agreement which ended the Bosnian war in 1995, the RS and the Croatian-Muslim federation make up present-day Bosnia-Hercegovina.

The court said the unit to which Medan belonged was responsible for the killing of a large number of Muslim prisoners at a depot at a cooperative farm at Kravica, two days after the Muslim enclave of Srebenica fell to the Bosnian Serbs.

Medan, 40, was arrested at his flat in Mostar in the south of the country. Appearing before a magistrate in the presence of his lawyer he did not deny the charges against him.

The massacre at Srebenica was the worst single atrocity in Europe since the end of World War II.

The former political and military leaders of the Bosnian Serbs, Radovan Karadzic and Ratko Mladic, have been on the run since being charged with genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity by the main UN war crimes court in The Hague.
Thanks again Mario Profaca!

Damn, that's one more off the check list. I've got to get busy, for I'm going to miss my "pay-day"!hehe.

No, seriously though, I'm through with all that crap. My heart still finds it's self beating a little fast as my stomach fills with butterflies of what, "could have been!" Damn!
