Mile Novaković (born in Vrginmost, Croatia on April 29, 1950[3]) is a former Serbian major general active in the military of Serbian Krajina and in the Federal Yugoslav Army, during and after the Croatian War of Independence. He was tried in absentia by a Croatian court in 1995 for war crimes, being sentenced to 20 years in jail. In 2003, another Yugoslav Army official was apprehended by Macedonian officials citing an Interpol warrant, as he tried to cross into the country.[4] This man was released after the mistaken identity was discovered.[5] The real Mile Novaković remains at large in Serbia.

In 2010, Novaković testified at the trial of Momčilo Perišić at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia.[6] Perišić had previously promoted Novaković to the rank of major general in the Federal Yugoslav Army in 1993.[7]
