THE HAGUE - Ratko Mladic was "extremely cooperative" on his arrival at the Hague tribunal's detention center, paying close attention to rules, rights and procedures, the registrar of the war crimes court said on Wednesday.

"It was a very cooperative, very smooth procedure," John Hocking told news conference. "We had no problems understanding each other."

Contrary to statements by his lawyer and son that the 69-year-old former Bosnian Serb Army commander was disoriented and mentally unfit for extradition, Hocking described a man in full command of his wits.

"He made no comment on the charges against him. He asked a lot about procedures," Hocking said. "He was really paying attention and listening to the information we provided. We had good communication."
