Ratko Mladic, the former Bosnian Serb general has faced his first day in The Hague in front of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, charged with genocide and war crimes.

The prosecution argues that Serb atrocities were not spontaneous but part of a plan to remove, to ethnically cleanse Muslims and Croats from the land that the Serbs wanted and that Ratko Mladic was an integral part of this plan.

The success or failure of this trial will go a long way to establishing how the UN court is perceived by generations to come.

Inside Story, with presenter Kamahl Santamaria, discusses with guests: Muhamed Sacirbey, former Bosnian ambassador to the UN; Toby Cadman, international criminal lawyer and a former special adviser to the chief prosecutor of Bosnia ; and Slobodan Samar-dzija, a journalist at the Politika Daily newspaper
in Serbia.
