Karadzic captured

#1
Bosnian Serb war crimes suspect Radovan Karadzic, one of the world's most wanted men, has been arrested in Serbia after more than a decade on the run.

...

Officials said no further information about his detention would be released until the action team of prosecutors, police and intelligence teams meet in Belgrade on Tuesday morning, the BBC's Eastern European correspondent Nick Thorpe says.

"Radovan Karadzic was located and arrested tonight" by Serbian security officers, a statement by the office of President Boris Tadic said, without giving details.

"Karadzic was brought to the investigative judge of the War Crimes Court in Belgrade, in accordance with the law on co-operation with the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia [ICTY]."

Serbian government sources told Reuters news agency he had been under surveillance for several weeks, following a tip-off from a foreign intelligence service.

But his lawyer, Svetozar Vujacic, said Mr Karadzic had been detained "on Friday in a bus" and held till he was brought before the judge of Serbia's war crimes court for questioning. Mr Karadzic was said to have remained silent during questioning.

Heavily armed special forces were deployed around the war crimes court in Belgrade - apparently fearing a backlash from nationalists who consider Mr Karadzic a hero.

"He did not surrender, that is not his style," his brother, Luka Karadzic, said outside the court.

About time but sadly done because of the political want of an entry to the Euro Union rather than a want for natural justice.

And no, I don't believe that the Serbs don't know where the other bugger is either.

Quite so, he just has a stronger tie to the military than Father Ted did.

One down two to go.

Mladic and Hadzic are still out there.

Still it is excellent news and I look forward to seeing him very soon.

The Hague must now ensure that he doesn't commit suicide - you can see it now and I am sure he is thinking of ways to squirm his way out of his day in court

All that blood on his hands and what's the harshest sentence he'll get? A life sentence for genocide for some someone already in his 60's is hardly justice. Flay the bstard, torture him, and dip him in vinegar every day. Or let some of his victims have a chance to get the message across.

Lovely bloke.

Deceit and betrayal are art forms in that part of the world. Somewhere I've got a VCR tape of the TV series they made a couple of years after the Dayton Deal.

I'll never forgot the smirk on the face the Montenegrin president (the one who looked like Bob Carolgees) as he described how he did Milosevic up like a kipper at some point in the disintegration of the place.

As for suicide by Father Ted - I'd take it as an admission of guilt (but not remorse) and dance on his unmarked pauper's grave.

But then I didn't lose my family and home at the hands of his thieving butchers.

Ideally I'd like to see him live long enough to hang.

'cept we don't hang people any more - even the least civilised ones.

This was in a civil war and the victors have the show trials (war crimes). The rest of the participants have nothing to fear from the War Crimes Court in The Hague. By the by I think the USA does not recognise the War Crimes Court.

Bill Clinton signed the Treaty (Rome Statute) establishing the International Criminal Court back in 2000 but George Bush withdrew the US signature fearing that US servicemen would be brought before it in politically motivated cases.

I don't think the Hague is for Show Trials. FYI trials for war crimes against all 3 ethnicities by all 3 ethnicities is an ongoing thing here in the Balkans. This fecker took longer to dig out because he was being shielded by the Serb Security Service - I suspect a lot of people knew where the tw@t was.

Inf/RMP - when you meet him say hello from me with your left boot into his nads the murdering fecker :twisted:

Wrong court. Karazdic has been indicted before the ICTY, not the International Criminal Court (ICC). The ICTY was established by a UN Security Council resolution and, as such, is recognised by the USA.
