(E) Carla - figure of the year in The Scotsman
International figure of the year 
The Scotsman - United Kingdom; Dec 29, 2001 
KNOWN by Sicilian mobsters as La Puttana (the whore) and by Slobodan 
Milosevic as "the new Gestapo", Carla del Ponte, the chief prosecutor at the 
international tribunal in The Hague, worked in 2001 to bring the former 
Yugoslav leader to justice. 
She made legal history in February with the first war crimes trial in which 
rape was depicted as a tool of war and a crime against humanity. In that 
case, three Serbs were jailed for the systematic rape and torture of women 
and girls during the Bosnian war. 
As attorney general in Switzerland, she was the only figure in public life 
with a round-the-clock armed guard. 
Now Ms del Ponte is taking on NATO. This week she deplored the fact that the 
former Bosnian Serb leader, Radovan Karadzic, and his military commander, 
Ratko Mladic, were still at large. NATO was the most powerful organisation on 
Earth, she told the BBC, so why had they not been captured? 
Good question, and it was not for want of trying by the tireless Ms del Ponte.
