A Serbian court on Wednesday announced that it would drop charges of illegal possession of firearms against Bosiljka Mladic, wife of war crimes indictee Ratko Mladic, reported the Serbian news agency Tanjug.

Judge Vesna Adamovic of the First Municipal Prosecutor's Office in Belgrade said that she had questioned Ratko Mladic, the former commander of the Bosnian Serb Army while he was in custody in Belgrade, just prior to his extradition to the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY).

According to Adamovic, Mladic testified that the weapons seized by police during a raid on his family home in December 2008 belonged to him.

Police and security services found one hunting rifle, an automatic rifle and four handguns, along with several dozen bullets during the raid. None of the people involved in the case appeared in court.

Ratko Mladic, who has been charged with crimes against humanity and genocide for his role during the Bosnian civil war in the 1990s, had been the ICTY's highest profile fugitive prior to his capture in May by Serbian security forces.
