ACTION ALERT: KARADZIC MUST ANSWER GENOCIDE CHARGES

July 3, 2009
TELL U.N. JUDGES AND PROSECUTORS NOT TO DROP KEY CHARGES AGAINST RADOVAN KARADZIC!

PHOTO of Radovan Karadzic, the architect of genocide in Srebrenica. In several days of July 1995, the Srebrenica genocide resulted in a mass scale ethnic cleansing of 30000 and a massacre of at least 8372 Bosniaks.

According to The Herald: “The judge preparing Radovan Karadzic’s genocide trial… was considering dropping some charges to shorten court proceedings that could take years.”

Scottish judge Iain Bonomy “indicated prosecutors might have to drop one of two key parts of the 11-count indictment: either the deadly siege of Sarajevo or the July 1995 killing of 8000 Muslims in the UN safe haven of Srebrenica, Europe’s worst massacre since the Second World War.”

Tell the U.N. Judges and Prosecutors not to drop any key charges against Radovan Karadzic. Ask them to find alternative solution to complete the trial. For example, Karadzic could stand trial in front of the International Judges presiding over the Court of Bosnia-Herzegovina.

    Message to JUSTWATCH on July 8 from Nerma Jelacic, ICTY Spokesperson:

    "For those of you who may have wondered about the accuracy of media reports about reduction of the scope of indictement against Radovan Karadzic here is the clarification provided at today's ICTY Press Briefing. It can also be found at the following link: http://www.icty.org/sid/10182

    Asked about the recent reports in the media claiming that Judge Bonomy invited Prosecution during the last Status Conference in the Karadzic to think about dropping either Srebrenica or Sarajevo charge of the indictment, Nerma Jelacic responded that at no point did Judge Bonomy invite the Prosecution to drop the 'Srebrenica or Sarajevo counts' as reported by the media. The Prosecution was told that they may need to start thinking about how to reduce the length of the trial and a number of possibilities were mentioned, including reducing the number of crime sites and not proceeding on certain counts. These were simply hypothetical examples to illustrate the application of the Rules. The Tribunal's rules stipulate that the Trial Chambers can invite the Prosecutor to reduce the number of counts or crime scenes charged in the indictment in the interest of a fair and expeditious trial and issue any appropriate orders."
