Targeted Bosnian Muslim and Croat political leaders, intellectuals and professionals

Unlawfully deported and transferred civilians because of national or religious identity

One of the biggest scumbags walking this earth. Who knows exactly how many men, women and children this monster is responsible for murdering.
 
he should be hanged but then again he should suffer and spend his whole life in jail slowly rotting away

the biggest MF u can find

hope he gets what he deserves
 
His case is one of pure evil. Such Sadistic Btd's should be tortured to death. He knew how many people he exterminated, he still lived with it for the past 13-14 years. He changed his appearance, his lifestyle, everything. It was just shocking to see this latest pictures and no wonder he was never captured for the last 13 years. I hope he is honestly tortured Saddam Style till death. Btw 3000th post, glad it was this one.

lol @ MF classic haha
 
He is pure evil, maybe gthe reincarnation of devil on earth...what is interesting is that for the first 3 years, after the end of war (when he was being searched for by UN and everyone else), he kept showing up to different demonstartions etc. (without disguise I think) and no one captured him.

I guess killing 1000's of Muslims is not a serious enough crime and now they catch him and his trial is set to go for ever just like his evil buddy Milosovic...hope he does not die like Milosovic during his trial!

He should be cut at a few startegic places, hung and left to die a slow and painful death
 
Such a person deserves execution for his crimes against Humanity.
 
he will probably commit suicide while on trial.
 
And ten years down the road the Sudanese leaders might be getting tried for the genocide in Darfur.

But what will that matter to the dead ?

No one cares for 'low-profile' cases - Darfur, Rwanda, Bosnia etc etc etc.

This case will drag on for years...

I don't believe in the death sentence, even for this guy. I'm a strong believer in God deciding when it's time for a man (or a woman) to go, and the only right we have is to keep a dangerous person away from those he would harm until the end of his days. A life sentence is just as effective, and allows him the further torturous days on Earth that he deserves.

Plenty of those who shared your thoughts, turned the other way when Saddam was executed.

I'll be interested in what 'world opinion' is like in the run up to his trial

Wasn't that Milosevic.

Serbia want to join EU don't they?

That was Part II of the 'double act'.

He went all 'dumb' when he was being questioned...really made a mockery of the system in place.

Death was too good for him - but I'm not too fussy.

Would like to see the same fate for thios vile llife scum. Those modern day concentration camps were just too much to take in.
 
And still quite a few people cheer for him, such are the times that we live in.

Well one the 'unwashed masses' in the West realise what his crimes were, they might 'secretly' smile a bit....

The only ones cheering for him are the KKK/neo-nazi types I bet.. they prolly support him for standing up for white christians against brown muslims.. well, they will be shocked to see what Bosnian muslims look like --->

Just wonder if Karadzic had a brilliant disguise, what sort of disguise will that guy Mladic have while he is on the run? Such was the arrogance of Karadzic, he could so easily have left the country and settled somewhere else a new identity, a new life with no one looking into his past. But he felt he could so easily hide in society, live a normal life, laughing everyday thinking about the people he was able to kill and never be accounted for it. The guy should be slowly, painfully tortured for life every single day that the only way it would end is death which would not be given to him.
 
Radovan Karadžić 'criminally responsible' for genocide at Srebenica

The former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadžić has been “held criminally responsible” for the 1995 genocide in Srebrenica and sentenced to 40 years in jail.

The key verdict from a United Nations tribunal in The Hague was delivered 18 months after a five-year trial of Karadžić, who was accused of being one of the chief architects of wartime atrocities.

The 70-year-old, who pleaded not guilty and insisted his actions were aimed at protecting Serbs during the conflict, faced 11 charges at the international criminal tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), including two counts of genocide.

Prosecutors said that Karadžić, as political leader and commander in chief of Serb forces in Bosnia, was responsible for some the worst acts of brutality during the war, including the 44-month deadly siege of Sarajevo and the 1995 massacre of more than 8,000 Bosnian men and boys in the Srebrenica enclave.

The presiding ICTY judge delivering the ruling, O-Gon Kwon, earlier said the court had found Karadzic not to be responsible for genocide in attacks on other towns and villages where Croats and Bosnians were driven out.

The verdict is the most important moment in the 23-year existence of the ICTY, and one of the last that it will deliver. Set up in 1993, the court has so far indicted 161 suspects. Of those, 80 were convicted and sentenced, 18 acquitted, 13 sent back to local courts and 36 had the indictments withdrawn or died.

The former psychiatrist and charismatic politician, still with his characteristic bouffant hairstyle, is the most senior Balkans leader to face judgment at the ICTY. The former Serbian president Slobodan Milošević died in his cell in The Hague in 2006 before judges could deliver their verdicts on his trial.

Apart from Karadžić, three suspects remain on trial, including his military chief, Ratko Mladić and Serb ultranationalist Vojislav Šešelj. Eight cases are being appealed and two defendants are to face retrials. The judgment in Šešelj’s case is scheduled for next Thursday.

Karadžić was indicted along with Mladić in 1995 but evaded arrest until he was captured in Belgrade, Serbia, in 2008. At the time, he was posing as a New Age healer, Dr Dragan Dabic, and was disguised by a thick beard and shaggy hair.

More than 20 years after the guns fell silent in Bosnia, Karadžić is still considered a hero in Serb-controlled parts of the country, and the verdict is unlikely to help reconcile the enduring deep divisions in Bosnia and the region.

Justice, finally. May this piece of crap rot for the rest of his life.
 
Death will be too easy for him. Should be put in a hellhole prison in Siberia in solitary.
 
Some justice finally Its taken over 20 years to find this vile piece of work guilty on some counts Hopefully this will provide some solace to the families of the srebenica dead

however the not guilty verdict on the massacres in the other muncipalities must be heartwrenching for the families of those who lost their loved ones there

Plus, though it's most likely that he will die in prison anyway, but 40 years isn't really enough. People in the US can get 40 year sentences simply for drug-related offenses.

'Is the tribunal not ashamed?' Karadžić sentence angers victims

Nothing will happen to him. At most, he will live rest of his life in a VIP class jail.
 
Radovan Karadzic sentence increased to life at UN tribunal

A UN court has rejected an appeal by Bosnian Serb former leader Radovan Karadzic and increased his sentence to life in prison.

The tribunal on Wednesday ruled that his initial sentence was too light.

In 2016 Karadzic, 73, was found guilty of genocide and war crimes by a UN tribunal in The Hague and given a 40-year prison sentence.

He planned the Srebrenica massacre of July 1995 - the worst atrocity in Europe since World War Two.

Karadzic had said his conviction was based on "rumours". He launched an appeal against his sentence last year, telling judges that the expulsion of Muslims and Croats in the 1990s had been "myths".

Karadzic, a former psychiatrist, was president of the Bosnian Serb entity Republika Srpska during the Bosnian War in the 1990s.

But the tribunal rejected the majority of Karadzic's appeal, instead ruling the sentence was too lenient.

The former leader cannot appeal the tribunal's decision. He sat in the chamber on Wednesday and did not react to the ruling.

Correspondents say the ruling is likely to be one of the last remaining hearings stemming from the bloody break-up of the former Yugoslavia in the 1990s.

In its original verdict, the UN tribunal ruled that Karadzic and other leaders were responsible for the "organised and systematic pattern of crimes committed against Bosnian Muslims and Bosnian Croats".

At Srebrenica, Bosnian Serb soldiers slaughtered nearly 8,000 Muslim men and boys in a "safe area" protected by Dutch peacekeeping forces for the UN.

Judges also held Karadzic responsible for the siege of Sarajevo, a campaign of shelling and sniping which lasted more than three years and led to the deaths of an estimated 10,000 civilians.

After the war, Karadzic hid for years masquerading as an expert in alternative medicine before his eventual arrest in Serbia in 2008.

Former Bosnian Serb army commander Ratko Mladic was sentenced to life in prison on similar charges of war crimes and genocide in November 2017.

This piece of trash has no other legal options left. Time to enjoy the remainder of your days in a locked cell.

The UK has agreed Bosnian Serb wartime leader Radovan Karadzic should be transferred to a British prison to serve the rest of his sentence for his role in the Srebrenica genocide, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said.

Karadzic was convicted in March 2016 on 10 counts including genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes as the political mastermind behind Serb crimes in the 1992-95 Bosnian war and sentenced to 40 years, later increased to life.

Following the announcement, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said the UK should "take pride" in its role in pursuing justice over Radovan Karadzic's "heinous crimes".

He said: "Radovan Karadzic is one of the few people to have been found guilty of genocide.

"He was responsible for the massacre of men, women and children at the Srebrenica genocide and helped prosecute the siege of Sarajevo with its remorseless attacks on civilians.

"We should take pride in the fact that, from UK support to secure his arrest, to the prison cell he now faces, Britain has supported the 30 year pursuit of justice for these heinous crimes."
 
Shame taxpayers money is being spent on this scumbag's incarceration however unlike many war criminals roaming free on the planet at least this one was brought to justice.

He had no shame in standing up in the Bosnian Parliament and threatening the Bosnian Muslims with extermination to their face:
