Belgrade has promised to demolish the monument and ethnic Albanians have vowed to defend it - while its creator just wishes he'd never been asked to build it.
Four years since Bosnia adopted a war-crimes strategy, hopes are growing that perpetrators might be brought to justice more quickly.
The president of Bosnia’s highest judicial authority says that failure to secure resources will hold up prosecutions of alleged war criminals.
The Hague Tribunal has taken flak for recent high-profile acquittals but prosecution errors have helped the accused go free, says Balkans expert Eric Gordy.
The superficial treatment of Mladić’s arrest and trial is a testament to the country’s unwillingness to face up to its past.
The contrasting responses of Serbs and Bosniaks to the Mladić case have again exposed Bosnia’s unbridgeable divide.
In spite of the acquittal of General Gotovina, the omission of crimes committed in Croatia from the Mladić indictment is a blot on the tribunal’s record in the country.
With four verdicts passed this year the ICTY brought justice to some ex-Yugoslav states, while some say that already endangered regional cooperation touched new low.
The conciliatory messages by Ante Gotovina, the Croatian general recently acquitted by the Hague Tribunal, have disappointed Croatian far right.
About 200 people from Ilijas were killed in spring 1992 following a Bosnian Serb assault on the town and surrounding villages – and over 50 remain missing. Yet almost no one has yet been held responsible.
Croatia and Kosovo should not see the rulings on Gotovina and Haradinaj as a vindication of their supposedly ‘just’ wars.
He had made a successful transition from guerrilla leader to politician - until The Hague threw its spanner in the works, not once but twice.
While family and friends prepare for a homecoming for Ramush Haradinaj, there is fear that the ICTY is under pressure to issue a verdict that will appease Serbia.
The Hague Tribunal’s decision that two Croatian generals were innocent of war crimes leaves serious questions unanswered.
Once the euphoria surrounding the Gotovina-Markac verdicts fades, the justice system will still have to address the question of war crimes committed in 1995.
