How awesome are things in Serbia...


...if $1.34 million is only good if it's tax free?

NY Times: A Serbian official said the reward of $1.34 million for information leading to the arrest of the country’s most wanted war crimes fugitive, Ratko Mladic, was tax-free. Bruno Vekaric, a spokesman for Serbia’s Special War Crimes Prosecutor’s Office, said the reward was exempt from the 20 percent income tax. The same is true of a $334,000 reward for another war crimes suspect, Goran Hadzic, he said. Mr. Mladic commanded the Bosnian Serb troops and Mr. Hadzic led Croatian Serbs in the early 1990s.

You can't tell me there have been people who actually thought, "Man, that is Mladic right there! I'm calling this in, get me $1.34 million!...Of course 20% of that goes to the damn government. So what would I get? $1.072 million? That's barely over a million. Not worth it."
