Del Ponte: Milosevic will be arrested

SOFIA, Tuesday -- Hague Tribunal Chief Prosecutor Carla del Ponte said today that she was certain Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic, who has been indicted by the tribunal for war crimes, would be arrested. "We cannot hold a trial without him, but I am sure Milosevic will go to trial. I am ready for his trial. I have no dilemma in providing evidence against him. I know he will be sentenced to life imprisonment, because there is no death penalty," said del Ponte as quoted by Beta. Del Ponte, speaking Sofia during a visit to Bulgaria, said that there were too many war crimes suspects still at large and called on NATO to arrest them.
