I’m very glad that this war criminal was caught, and there is NO disputing that the Serbian government wanted to get its hands on him. The capture of war criminals has been something that democratic, pro-Europe Serbia has been at for a few years now.

Let me emphasis this: There are very few people left in Serbia that celebrate these war criminals and their crimes!

This removes a major barrier for Serbia’s membership to the European Union, something that Serbia has worked hard for and earned. Good for Serbia and Serbia will be a great EU member!
