I woke up to wonderful news that Radovan Karadzic, war crimes suspect and a man responsible for over 100,000 dead Bosnians, was captured. Apparently, he was living in New Belgrade and practicing alternative medicine while working for a company.
He has been indicted by the UN tribunal for war crimes, genocide in Srebrenica and the siege of Sarajevo since 1996. I am quite sure that NATO, UN and/or Serbian authorities could have captured this monster as well as Mladic, and all other war criminals, but they didn’t. Why they didn’t do it, and why are they doing it now? I don’t know, but I am sure there is a reason behind this surprising but welcomed capturing.
According to BBC, Radovan Karadzic is charged for:
- Eleven counts of genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity and other atrocities
- Charged over shelling Sarajevo during the city’s siege, in which some 12,000 civilians died
- Allegedly organized the massacre of up to 8,000 Bosniak men and youths in Srebrenica
- Targeted Bosniak and Croat political leaders, intellectuals, and professionals
- Unlawfully deported and transferred civilians because of national or religious identity
- Destroyed homes, businesses and sacred sites
