DR KARADZIC’S MEDICAL REPORTS AND REQUESTS

In Radovan Karadzic’s opinion, the detainees' health has deteriorated because they are served frozen food from plastic dishes warmed in microwave ovens. Another reason might be potentially hazardous materials used in the construction of the Detention Unit. Karadzic complains about excessive use of paracetamol, a ‘dangerous drug’. He also asks the judges to allow him to ‘be active professionally as a medical doctor and writer’ and to continue the work of his predecessor Vuk Karadzic

KARADZIC: ‘GOD FORBID WE WEREN’T THERE’

KARADZIC ‘DESPERATELY DENIES FACTS’ AND ‘TERRORIZES LOGIC’

In the rebuttal of the defense’s closing arguments, the prosecutor noted that unlike his legal advisor Peter Robinson, Karadzic ‘did provide support to his generals’. Karadzic ‘cannot accept the reality of what happened to the Srebrenica men and boys because that reality charges him personally’, the prosecutor stressed. Karadzic is a man ‘desperately trying to deny the facts that incriminate him’, facts that ‘show beyond any reasonable doubt his responsibility on all counts in the indictment’

UNLIKE KARADZIC, ROBINSON ADMITS CRIMES WERE COMMITTED

On the second day of the defense closing arguments, Karadzic’s legal advisor Peter Robinson told the judges to acquit the accused of genocide in the municipalities and in Srebrenica. Robinson, however, did admit that ‘heinous crimes’ had been committed there. Karadzic, for his part, denied there was a campaign of artillery and sniper terror against the Sarajevo citizens arguing that ‘Sarajevo wasn't as much as scratched’. Finally, Karadzic said he was sure he would be acquitted

KARADZIC’S FINAL OFFENSIVE: ATTACK IS THE BEST FORM OF DEFENSE

PROSECUTOR: GENOCIDE IS THE RIGHT WORD FOR KARADZIC’S CRIMES

In his closing argument, prosecutor Alan Tieger called Radovan Karadzic a liar and a mobster, the driving force behind the ethnic cleansing of parts of Bosnia and Herzegovina the Serbs had claimed as their own. The crimes ‘were not aimed against individuals but against members of an undesirable community’ with a view to forcibly changing the demographic composition of Bosnia and Herzegovina. ‘Genocide is the right word for those crimes’, the prosecutor noted
