KARADZIC WANTS BIFURCATED JUDGMENT

In his latest motion, Radovan Karadzic argues that issuing separate sentencing judgment would contribute to a fair trial and make work easier for the judges. However, the former Republika Srpska president claims there will be no need for the sentencing judgment because he ‘expects to be acquitted’, as he has put it in the first sentence of his motion

PROSECUTOR COULD HAVE FORESEEN KARADZIC’S ARGUMENT

The Trial Chamber’s decision denying the prosecution's motion for rebuttal of Karadzic's defense case was made public. The prosecution had sought leave to call 14 new witnesses in rebuttal. Although the judges agree that the contested evidence ‘raises significant issues’, and that the accused hadn’t indicated he would be calling it in his pre-trial brief, they ruled that the prosecution could ‘reasonably have foreseen’ that this evidence would be called. At the beginning of the trial, Karadzic clearly indicated he would contest all of the adjudicated facts

CLOSING ARGUMENTS AT KARADZIC TRIAL SLATED FOR 29 SEPTEMBER 2014

On Thursday, the Trial Chamber denied the prosecution’s motion to re-open its case in order to present the evidence about the exhumation of the Tomasica mass grave. Today, the judges denied the prosecution motion seeking leave to rebut parts of Karadzic’s defense case. The closing arguments have been scheduled for 29 September 2014

TOMASICA EVIDENCE ‘NOT IN THE INTEREST OF JUSTICE’

The Trial Chamber has concluded that to call evidence on the Tomasica mass grave near Prijedor at this late stage of the trial ‘is not in the interest of justice’. The new evidence could cause the trial to drag on, and its evidentiary value at this time ‘is speculative at best’. The trial of Ratko Mladic thus remains the last opportunity for the Tomasica evidence to be heard at the Tribunal

KARADZIC AGAINST TOMASICA EVIDENCE

Former Republika Srpska president has urged the Trial Chamber to reject the prosecution’s motion to re-open its case in order to call evidence on the mass grave in the Tomasica mine near Prijedor. Karadzic has not opposed the prosecution’s motion seeking leave to rebut some of the defense’s evidence on the crimes in five BH municipalities

AMERICA ACQUITTED OF KARADZIC’S ACCUSATIONS

‘There is no reason to believe that America was in contempt of court’, Judge Moloto ruled, denying Radovan Karadzic’s motion. Karadzic had petitioned the court to appoint a prosecutor amicus curiae to investigate if the US state officials had obstructed the administration of justice by purportedly monitoring the privileged telephone conversations between the accused and their legal representatives and of the Tribunal’s judges

PROSECUTION WANTS TO CALL 19 ADDITIONAL WITNESSES IN KARADZIC CASE

The prosecution has sought permission to rebut Karadzic’s defense case through the testimony of 14 new witnesses, and to re-open its case to call five witnesses about the mass grave in Tomasica near Prijedor, discovered last year

PROSECUTION WANTS TO FILE LONGER FINAL BRIEF BY 17 SEPTEMBER 2014

The prosecution has asked the judges to give it six months longer than initially planned for its final brief at Radovan Karadzic's trial. Furthermore, the prosecution will need to file a longer brief, as Karadzic’s trial is the most complex case so far at the Tribunal, comprising no less than four joint criminal enterprises. The Croatian official who was supposed to testify today failed to appear

‘GENTLEMEN’S AGREEMENT’ MAY HELP KARADZIC

Radovan Karadzic’s motion to tender into evidence witnesses’ statements and other evidence on his alleged ‘gentlemen’s agreement’ with US diplomat Richard Holbrooke has been granted. Holbrooke purportedly promised Karadzic that the indictment against him in The Hague would be withdrawn in exchange for his retirement from political life. The evidence will be used only for the purpose of the sentencing

KARADZIC WANTS ONE YEAR TO PREPARE HIS FINAL BRIEF

Arguing that the preparation of the final brief was a big endeavor for a small defense team, Karadzic wants the judges to give him a year to draft it: he needs to go through 48,000 pages of transcripts, 11,000 exhibits, again as many briefs and motions, 2,300 adjudicated facts and the testimony of about 600 witnesses
