From Times Wire Reports

A former Yugoslav army chief wanted by the U.N. war crimes tribunal agreed to surrender to the Netherlands-based court, the Serbian government said.

Retired Gen. Nebojsa Pavkovic is wanted in connection with atrocities committed during the 1998-1999 Serb crackdown on ethnic Albanian separatists in Kosovo.

The government statement quoted Pavkovic as saying he would go to The Hague as an “honorable soldier who has devoted his life and honor to his country.”
