Right now, 74-year-old Mladic is in the UN Detention Unit in The Hague. He has been charged with having committed genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity during the 1992-1995 war in Bosnia.
The prosecutors have demanded life imprisonment for Mladic, who denies all the accusations.
The trial in Mladic's case began on May 12, 2012, following his arrest by the Serbian authorities in 2011; the former military official had been fleeing justice for years.
In December 2016, prosecutors demand a life sentence for Mladic for the alleged killing of 8,000 Muslim men and boys during the Srebrenica Massacre in July 1995, as well as the protracted siege and bombardment of the Bosnian capital Sarajevo and the "ethnic cleansing" of Muslims and Croats in other areas.
Mladic's defense lawyers, for their part, insist that Mladic did not order the Srebrenica killings, claiming that the trial has repeatedly been biased.
In March 2017, the lawyers called for provisional release of Mladic, who they claimed was not getting relevant medical treatment at the UN detention center in The Hague. The requests were rejected by the judges in May.
