Genocide suspect's book in shops in Bosnia

With the trial of genocide suspect Ratko Mladic ongoing at the International Tribunal in the Hague, Maldic's book released in 2011 by murky publisher "Serb Liberation Front“ can be found at bookshelves in some parts of Bosnia & Herzegovina.

An Anadolu Agency reporter found the book in Trebinje, a city in the south of Herzegovina which was subject to ethnic cleansing and war crimes in 1992 when the war broke out . 

The preface of the book  "Battle for Serbia – A Guidebook for Homeland Liberation" explains how Serbs are a "unique and special people," while the author writes about the "international conspiracy against Serbs" and his struggle "against the enemy one cannot see."

The publisher recommends the book as one of the best ever written about Serbia, Serbs and "Serbism."

Ratko Mladic, the former chief commander of the Army of Republika Srpska, is indicted for war crimes and crimes against humanity, including genocide, committed during the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina from 1992 to 1995.

He is charged, among other things, for the mass murder of over 8,000 boys and men after the fall of Srebrenica in July 1995, as well as the expulsion of over 30,000 civilians from the same city.

After years of living as a fugitive, Mladic was arrested in May 2011 in Serbia. His trial is ongoing at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia at the Hague. The prosecution is presenting its evidence.

On Monday American historian Robert Donia is to testify about the causes and goals of the war, as well as about Mladic's role in it.
