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.

#AceNewsServices say `Former Bosnian Serb‘ army commander `Mladic’ won’t testify at Karadzic trial

BreakingNews1Former Bosnian Serb army commander Ratko Mladic has refused to testify as a defense witness for his former political master, Radovan Karadzic. Mladic also called the UN’s Yugoslav war crimes tribunal a “satanic court,” AP reported. He repeatedly told judges he would not answer former Bosnian Serb president Karadzic’s questions. Both men are on trial separately for crimes including genocide, and they insist they are innocent.
