Koštunica produces a surrender

Looks like I was wrong in predicting that the news this week would be the surrender of Sreten Lukić. Turns out it's Vladimir Lazarević. We will see whether this surrender encourages others.

This is not likely to put the controversy to bed. For one thing, judge Schomburg's critique (quoted in the previous post) applies to this indictment, which is based entirely on command responsibility. It is possible to win a conviction on command responsibility, but not automatic, and the ICTY prosecutors would need to show a level of skill they do not always show. For another, the big fish remains Ratko Mladić.
