Bosnian serb arrested on war crimes charges
BELGRADE: Bosnian Serb wartime president Radovan Karadzic, one of the world’s most wanted men for his part in civilian massacres, has been arrested in Serbia, President Boris Tadic’s office said on Monday.
The arrest of Karadzic and other indicted war criminals and their delivery to the Hague war crimes tribunal, is one of the main conditions of Serbian progress towards European Union (EU) membership.
It came on the eve of a meeting of EU Foreign Ministers which is scheduled to discuss closer relations with serbia following the formation of a new pro-western government. A war crimes prosecutor was due to visit Belgrade on Tuesday.
Karadzic’s place of hiding has been a constant subject of international speculation since he went underground in 1997. Sources close to the government said Karadzic, distinguished by his characteristic long, grey hair, was arrested in Belgrade.
After his interrogation he will be handed over to UN Tribunal.
He was responsible for these men too – these 8,000 men and boys of Srebrenica:
A combination photo shows Bosnian Serb wartime leader and indicted war crimes suspect Radovan Karadzic (L) in an undated recent file photo and (R) attending a parliamentary session in the Republik of Srpska in Bosanski Samac February 13, 1995. War crimes fugitive Karadzic was arrested in a suburb of Belgrade where he lived posing as a doctor of alternative medicine, sporting long hair, a beard and glasses to hide his face, officials said July 22, 2008. He was indicted by the U.N. war crimes tribunal in The Hague in 1995 along with his army commander, General Ratko Mladic, for genocide at Srebrenica, where some 8,000 unarmed Bosnian Muslim males were rounded up and murdered and bulldozed into mass graves. He is also charged with authorising the shooting of civilians during the Sarajevo siege.
I want only to ask something: When will Muslim war criminals (who also killed people and even did organ trafficking with Serbs) be detained and handed over to the UN Tribunal? I rejoice when this war crimes culprits are found and condemned, but I would like ALL OF THEM condemned, NOT just SOME of them…
