THE HAGUE, Aug. 17 (Xinhua) -- Prosecutor of the UN war crimes tribunal ICTY is seeking two separate trials for former Bosnian Serb army chief Ratko Mladic, the ICTY said in a statement on Wednesday.

The first case would deal with the indictment of the genocide in Srebrenica where Mladic was accused of killing 7,000 Bosnian Muslim men and boys, while the second trial would focus on the charges of crimes against humanity, referring to the 43-month siege of the Bosnian capital Sarajevo.

In view of the possibility that Mladic's health condition could deteriorate, "we need to speed up the process if we take into consideration Mladic's age," a legal officer of ICTY told Xinhua.

"We don't want history to be repeated," he added, citing the case of Former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosovic who died in his cell at the UN detention unit in 2006 before the final judgement.
