U.N. prosecutor: No Serbia Mladic report

THE HAGUE, Netherlands, May 17 (UPI) -- The U.N. prosecutor says she has received no report on alleged Serbian-Montenegrin government efforts to arrest war crimes suspect Gen. Ratko Mladic.

Carla Del Ponte, prosecutor of the International Criminal Tribunal at The Hague, told reporters Wednesday she was not aware whether Belgrade authorities intensified a manhunt to bring Bosnian Serb military leader Mladic to justice, the Belgrade Beta news agency reported.

"I do not know whether Belgrade has intensified efforts to arrest Mladic, because I have received no report on the situation," said Del Ponte. "I would appreciate if Serbian Prime Minister Vojislav Kostunica informed me about what is going on."

Mladic is sought on genocide and crimes against humanity charges in the former Yugoslavia.

On May 3, the European Union interrupted association talks with Serbia-Montenegro after Del Ponte announced Kostunica failed to keep his promise to arrest and transfer Mladic to The Hague by April 30.
