KRAJISNIK TO REMAIN IN BRITISH PRISON

Krajisnik regularly goes to gym and attends a Bible study course

KARADZIC SHOWS HIS HAND

In his cross-examination, Karadzic never showed any signs of confusion or wavered in the face of the evidence showed to him by the prosecution; he stuck to the claims he made in his written statement.
