HAGUE: ‘ Radovan Karadzic Denies he Knew of the Execution of Prisoners at Srebrenica ‘

#AceWorldNews – HAGUE – October 02 – Former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic “did not know” of the 1995 massacre of thousands of Muslims at Srebrenica, AFP quoted his lawyer as saying Thursday.

“There is not a single piece of evidence that Dr. Karadzic planned or ordered the execution of prisoners [at Srebrenica], or that he knew about it,” legal advisor Peter Robinson told the Hague-based Yugoslav War Crimes Court.

He is seeking an acquittal of Karadzic on charges of genocide.

The verdict in the five-year trial is not expected before late 2015.
