[JURIST] Momcilo Perisic, a former general and chief of staff of the Yugoslav army under Slobodan Milosevic and later a Deputy Prime Minister of Serbia who pressed for co-operation with international war crimes prosecutors [2001 Serbian government press release], has decided to turn himself in to the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY). In a statement released by the Serbian government Wednesday following disclosure of the existence of an outstanding ICTY indictment on as yet unspecified charges, Perisic said he will surrender to the Hague on March 7. Perisic commanded troops in 1992 to surround the shell the Bosnian town of Mostar. In 2000, however, Perisic became an opposition leader and was key in toppling Milosevic from power. AFP has more.
