The Hague’s Last Yugoslavian Fugitive Gets Nabbed

For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.


Last week when I was talking to Luis Moreno-Ocampo, the chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, he said, “Guess how many fugitives ICTY has?” ICTY is what cool people call the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia. “ICTY has 161 indicted criminals. Guess how many of them are fugitives.” I didn’t know. “One! It took a long time, but there is one remaining fugitive.”

Well, not anymore.

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
