Serb war crimes suspect pleads 'not guilty'
Former Serbian police general Vlastimir Djordjevic on Monday pleaded ‘not guilty’ to charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity before the International Criminal Tribunal for former Yuguslavia (ICTY) in The Hague.

Last month Djordevic refrained from entering a plea before the Tribunal. It is not known yet when his trial will start.

A former police commander and assistant minister of the interior, Djordjevic was arrested in June by Serbian authorities and immediately transferred to the court in the Netherlands.

He was indicted in October 2003 for war crimes and crimes against humanity committed against ethnic Albanians in the province of Kosovo during the 1990s Balkans war.

He was the second war crimes suspect to be arrested in June by Serb authorities. According to the ICTY, four more Serbian suspects are still at large and believed to be living in the country.
