Radovan Karadzic’s defense team is comprised of Srebrenica genocide deniers, hard core Serbian nationalists, and admitted liars.

Earlier this morning, former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic was taken to a prison cell in The Hague to face trial at a U.N. war crimes tribunal on charges of genocide and other crimes against humanity during Bosnia war 1992-95. He will appear before the judges tomorrow at 4 p.m. (10 a.m. EDT).

Karadzic’s Lawyer Admits Lying

Today, Karadzic’s lawyer Svetozar Vujacic admitted he lied about sending an appeal against Karadzic’s extradition to the Hague. “No, I never sent it. It was the only way to prolong my client’s stay in Serbia, in order to give his family members a chance to visit him from Bosnia,” explained the lawyer to the broadcaster B92. In any normal country he would face consequences for purposefully lying to the judges and manipulating the Court, but not in Serbia.

Team of Deniers, Ultra-nationalist, and Crooks

Radovan Karadzic’s defence team is comprised of Srebrenica genocide deniers and radical Serbian ultranationalists that will do anything to prove his innocence, including falsifying documents and lying. The first team of this well known group, headed by Smilja Avramov and including Kosta Cavoski and Milivoje Ivanisevic, will have the task to gather the ‘evidence’ (this also includes falsifying documents and lying, as was also the case with an unrepentent Srebrenica genocide denier Milivoje Ivanisevic). During his fugitive days, Radovan Karadzic (aka: Dr. Dragan David Dabic) reportedly used pseudonym “Truth Lover” (“Ljubitelj Istine“)” to send anonymous tips and documents to the Srebrenica genocide denier Milivoje Ivanisevic, who assisted in Slobodan Milosevic’ defence. The second team will include Karadzic’s lawyer and admitted liar Svetozar Vujacic and his assistant Goran Petronijevic. Reportedly, Karadzic’s daughter Sonja Karadzic might also join them to help defend a child killer, her dad, who murdered 1,500 children in Sarajevo alone.

Why is Dragan Karadzic not Arrested?

Radovan’s nephew Dragan bragged in the media how he helped protect the most wanted war criminal in the Belgrade. Yet, he was not arrested. They even allowed him to visit Radovan while he was held in the Belgrade’s War Crimes Court. In any normal country, he would be arrested and charged for helping wanted fugitive evade justice.

Meanwhile, Karadzic Family Gets Passports Back

Recently, the international high representative refused to lift Karadzic family’s travel ban so they can visit Radovan in Belgrade prison cell. He said that the children of Radovan Karadzic—Sonja and Sasha—“will have the opportunity to see their father for many years to come, which cannot be said of the victims from Srebrenica and many other places.” Unfortunately, Lajcak changed his stance today and returned them travel documents so they can go and visit the monster. Srebrenica genocide survivor, Munira Subasic lost 22 members of her family – she won’t be able to see them ever again.

    As Radovan is a Serb and Christian, so he is so-called human being (and the muslim must not be treated as human to international people). And as a human being he has human right. So its not surprisable that he get so much benefit even after arrest and his family not charged to protect a fugitive.
    And it is certain that at Hague all the people including justices are also human being so naturally they have sympathy to Radovan and give him highest human right.
    We cant expect any justice from so-called human being. Only Bosnian muslim government has the right to trial him. We nuslim need to be conscious and built ourselves in a way so we need not to depend on other for justice.

    No, Muztaba. Karadzic has to be tried at the highest international because his crimes affect us all, not just the immediate victims in Bosnia. What happens to Karadzic at The Hague sends out a message to al-Bashir, Joseph Kony, and every other individual who believes they can wage war on civilians with impunity.

    And Karadzic’s trial has to be fair so that there is no scope for any of the creatures that live under a stone to claim that it is a political process or victor’s justice and give them the excuse to prolong their denial. For years they have used the slightest opportunity to argue that Srebrenica didn’t happen. Now that they can’t get away with that any more, it’s important that they don’t get the chance to turn Karadzic into a Prince Lazar.
