Mladic was sentenced to life in prison for genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes in the final trial before the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, which is due to close its doors next month.
Mladic, who has been dubbed "The Butcher of Bosnia", was convicted over crimes committed during the 1992-1995 war that killed 100,000 people and displaced 2.2 million as ethnic rivalries tore apart Yugoslavia.
