THE last major suspect for war crimes in the 90s conflicts in the former Yugoslavia was arrested yesterday.

Indicted for crimes against humanity, Goran Hadzic, 52, a Croatian Serb, was picked up in Fruska Gora national park about 40 miles north of Belgrade. One official said: “He had changed his appearance and had fake papers on him.”

Following the arrest of Ratko Mladic earlier this year, Hadzic was the last of 161 suspects sought by the United Nations war crimes tribunal in The Hague.

“We have closed a burdensome page of our history,” said President Boris Tadic.

Hadzic had lived openly in the northern Serbian city of Novi Sad until July 2004 when The Hague sent an arrest warrant to Belgrade. He was tipped off by nationalist hardliners and fled immediately.
