Gen Mladic faces 11 counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity, including genocide, in connection with the brutal 1992-95 Bosnian war.
Prosecutors in The Hague said they would show his hand in the crimes.
He has called the accusations “monstrous” and the court has entered a not guilty plea on his behalf.
