War Crimes Trial of Mladic Delayed Indefinitely, Tribunal Rules

The war crimes trial of former Bosnian Serb general Ratko Mladic has been suspended until further notice, according to a statement on the website of the Hague-based International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia.

The trial delay began in May because of an error in the disclosure of documents to the defense and had been scheduled to resume on June 25, according to information on the Tribunal website. It is now delayed indefinitely, according to the statement.

The full decision and reasoning will be made public in due course, according to the statement.
