Former Bosnian Serb military commander Ratko Mladic knows he will be extradited to a UN war crimes tribunal but wants time to rest before the trip, his lawyer said on Saturday.
Defence lawyer Milos Saljic said that Mladic does not know exactly when he will be extradited to the tribunal in The Hague, Netherlands and is in a "very confused state".
He could be extradited as early as Monday if a judge rejects his appeal of a decision to move him to The Hague.
Mladic is charged by the UN war crimes court for his part in the killing of some 8,000 Bosnian Muslim men and boys in Srebrenica, and other atrocities committed by his troops during Bosnia's 1992-95 war.
Mladic's son Darko told reporters that his father looked better than he did when he visited on Friday but seemed unaware of the situation he faces.
"We are convinced now that he has certain mental difficulties concerning his ability to recognise his situation in full," Darko Mladic said.
He insisted Mladic is innocent and added that the family would ask authorities to examine his health again.
