Pakistan’s powerful army brats would make you believe that the world’s most wanted man, Osama bin Laden, died recently of typhoid in a cave in Afghanistan and it was only on account of political expediency to suit US President Bush that the death of Osama was not being made public. But what about the other fugitives keeping him company atop the world’s most wanted list? They are not ordinary criminals. They are powerful warlords, enjoying some sort of political patronage in utter disregard to the concern, being raised time to time by the international community. The Carnegie Foundation of International Peace has tracked down a few of the world’s notorious outlaws. 1. Sheik Musa Hilal Wanted for: Organizing the janjaweed militias that have terrorized the population of Darfur for the past three years Indicted by: No one-yet. The U.N. Security Council has imposed a travel ban on Hilal and frozen his assets. There are persistent rumors that the International Criminal Court (ICC) is set to indict him or has already done so in secret. Whereabouts: Probably Khartoum Likelihood of Capture: Poor. Hilal is chief of one of Darfur’s largest Arab tribes and has powerful backers in the Sudanese government. And Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir is adept at fending off international pressure. 2. Felicien Kabuga Wanted for: Facilitating the 1994 genocide in Rwanda by organizing hate programs in newspapers and on Rwandan radio and television Indicted by: The International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda in 1999 Whereabouts: The rich businessman has attempted to settle in several countries since fleeing Rwanda in 1994. He is now reportedly in Kenya, and U.N. officials have met with officials there to try to secure his surrender. Likelihood of Capture: Good. The Kenyan government is reportedly investigating Kabuga’s assets with an eye to freezing them, and officials there were embarrassed when U.S. Sen. Barack Obama accused them of sheltering Kabuga during a recent trip to Kenya. 3. Radovan Karadzic Wanted for: Crimes against humanity and genocide during the 1992-95 Bosnian war. Karadzic was president of the Bosnian Serb republic and helped craft its wartime strategy. Indicted by: International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in 1995 Whereabouts: Karadzic is thought to be shuttling between eastern Bosnia and Montenegro, where he has relatives. Likelihood of Capture: Uncertain. The trail has gone cold in recent years. European troops in Bosnia occasionally raid the homes of Karadzic’s family and associates, but they do not appear to be closing in. 4. Joseph Kony Wanted for: Murder, rape, and kidnapping committed by the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) in northern Uganda Indicted by: The ICC in 2005 Whereabouts: Northern Uganda or Sudan Likelihood of Capture: Good. Through intermediaries, Kony has been negotiating with the Ugandan government in hopes of winning an amnesty for the LRA, and they appear to have struck a deal. But the ICC has been adamant that no amnesty is possible, and there is still a good chance that Kony will be apprehended. 5. Gen. Ratko Mladic Wanted for: Crimes during the Bosnian Serb offensive between 1992 and 1995, particularly the 1995 massacre at Srebrenica. Mladic was the commander of the Bosnian Serb forces during most of the war. Indicted by: The ICTY in 1995 Whereabouts: Serbia Likelihood of Capture: Good. The European Union has made turning over Mladic a key condition for discussing Serbia’s membership bid. Mladic still has protectors in the Serbian government, but international pressure will likely lead Serbian officials to turn him over eventually.
