Lib Dems: A great moment for the Balkans

Paddy Ashdown, former high representative for Bosnia and Herzegovina and former Liberal Democrat leader, comments on the arrest of Ratko Mladic:

"This is a great moment for the Balkans and for international justice. Mladicwas one of the two primary architects of the Balkan horrors, including the worst acts of genocide on the European mainland for the last 50 years.

"His forthcoming trial will be a chance for the whole Balkan region to put the past behind them and start building a secure European future."
