Former Serb general transferred to UN tribunal detention unit

Former Yugoslav army chief Nebojsa Pavkovic was transferred on Monday to the detention unit of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia ( CITY), the UN tribunal announced on Monday.

In a press release emailed to Xinhua by the CITY, Pavkovic, Commander of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (VJ) 3rd Army in 1990s, was accused of war crimes during the 1998-1999 conflict in the southern Serbian province of Kosovo.

An indictment issued by the tribunal said Pavkovic, 59, was facing four counts of crimes against humanity and one count of violations of the laws or customs of war.

Pavkovic is the 15th Serb indictee to surrender to the tribunal since November.

Nine other publicly indicted Serbs remain at large, including the two most wanted fugitives -- Bosnian Serb war time political leader Radovan Karadzic and military chief Ratko Mladic -- who are accused of genocide.
