Alleged war criminal Goran Hadzic was allowed to visit his family before being extradited to Holland.
In what could likely be the last time he will see his relatives, Hadzic's convoy stopped in the Serbian city of Novi Sad before the former rebel leader was put on a plane for The Hague in Netherlands. With police closing off streets and guarding the house, Hadzic saw his 86-year-old mother Milena Hadzic.
She is reported to be suffering from dementia, and is bed-ridden. Hadzic himself lived in the Novi Sad house until 2004, when he went into hiding after the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia issued formal charges against him.
He was also permitted to see his daughter, who is pregnant.
Other friends and family visited the former Republic of Serbian Krajina rebel leader in his jail cell in Belgrade after his arrest on Wednesday. Those who visited Hadzic included his wife, his mistress and his children.
He also visited the grave of his father, who died while Hadzic was in hiding.
Hadzic arrived in the Netherlands Friday morning. He is awaiting trial on 14 charges related to war crimes, including murder, persecution and forcible deportation. He is also thought to be behind the 1991 massacre of more than 200 non-Serb prisoners in Vukovar, Croatia.
He decided not to appeal the extradition to The Hague.
Hadzic was the last of 161 wanted war criminals to be arrested in the former-Yugoslav nations. His capture came less than two months after the arrested of Ratko Mladic, one of two men thought to be responsible for the Srebrenica Massacre in 1995.
If convicted by the same Tribunal, Mladic will face a life sentence.
