Bosnian Serb General To Surrender To Tribunal

21 February 2005 -- The Serbian government said today that former Bosnian Serb General Milan Gvero will surrender to the international war crimes tribunal at The Hague.

A government statement says Gvero made the decision after meeting with Serbian Justice Minister Zoran Stojkovic.

Gvero was a deputy to top fugitive Ratko Mladic during the 1992-95 Balkans conflict.

Mladic is still being sought to answer war crimes charges.

Gvero was not on the list of those publicly accused by the UN war crimes tribunal, but the Serbian government said it had received his indictment.

Gvero was due to travel to The Hague on 24 February.
