Karadzic has been on the run since July 1995 when he was indicted, together with his military commander Ratko Mladic, by The Hague-based International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) for genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes during the 1992-1995 Bosnian War.
His arrest is believed to be a clear sign of Serbia's newly formed pro-Western government to establish closer ties with the European Union, which has set full cooperation with the ICTY by arresting all the remaining top war crimes suspects as a condition for applying the pre-membership Stabilization and Association Agreement.
