It is quite possible that Karremans, during that first meeting on July 11, 1995, did not know what mladic planned to do.
His father, Ibro, had even helped the Dutch by representing the refugees in negotiations with mladic.
mladic now will appear as a reduced and demystified figure in The Hague dock—an inhumane serial killer rather than a hero.
After almost 16 years, mladic was captured on May 26 and taken to The Hague to face trial for crimes against humanity.
One could say the footage accurately portrays the chilling dynamics between the two officers, Karremans and mladic.
