Darko Mladić, son of General Ratko Mladić, said today that his father’s condition has deteriorated and that he is extremely poorly.

“Unfortunately, I do not have good news. The General’s condition has rapidly deteriorated. He is unable to walk for extended periods of time. He can make it 20-30 meters before getting tired, he is unable to make himself something to eat, he is being helped by guards and other prisoners. He is currently in an extremely poor condition,” said Darko Mladić on the TV Pink morning show.

The General’s son added that the only good news is that his father was able to bring his blood sugar levels down.

“Everything else is significantly worse. That is pretty much the latest information. My mother went to visit him a month ago, his lawyer went now and was shocked to see him after two years. He is so shaken by how much his health condition has worsened,” he added.

General Ratko Mladić’s life sentence was confirmed by the panel of the International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals on June 8, 2021, with the dissenting opinion of the presiding judge of the Trial Chamber Prisca Matimba Nyambe.
