The White House released a statement praising the arrest of Goran Hazic, the Croatian-Serb war-crime fugitive

From the statement:

We hope that Goran Hadzic’s arrest, coming less than two months after the arrest of fellow indictee Ratko Mladic, can bring some much needed closure to the victims of the crimes committed in Croatia, and their families, and elsewhere in the region.  It also serves as yet another reminder to those around the world who carry out terrible crimes that their day, too, will come.

Over the course of its 18-year history, the United States has been and remains a steadfast supporter of the ICTY and its critically important work.  The arrests of Mladic and now Hadzic, the final two fugitives out of 161 individuals indicted by the court, will allow the ICTY, and the many professionals who have worked in its chambers, to finally complete their mandate on behalf of the victims and in pursuit of justice.
