KARADZIC IN THE HAGUE AND HIS DEFENSE TEAM WITH A DUBIOUS REPUTATION
Updated: 4:38 pm
Earlier this morning, former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic was taken to a prison cell in The Hague to face trial at a U.N. war crimes tribunal on charges of genocide and other crimes against humanity during Bosnia war 1992-95. He will appear before the judges tomorrow at 4 p.m. (10 a.m. EDT).
Radovan Karadzic's defense team is comprised of Srebrenica genocide deniers, hard core Serbian nationalists, and admitted liars.
Karadzic's Lawyer Admits Lying
Today, Karadzic's lawyer Svetozar Vujacic admitted he lied about sending an appeal against Karadzic's extradition to the Hague. "No, I never sent it. It was the only way to prolong my client's stay in Serbia, in order to give his family members a chance to visit him from Bosnia," explained the lawyer to the broadcaster B92. In any normal country he would face consequences for purposefully lying to the judges and manipulating the Court, but not in Serbia.

Why is Dragan Karadzic not Arrested?
Radovan's nephew Dragan bragged in the media how he helped protect the most wanted war criminal in the Belgrade. Yet, he was not arrested. They even allowed him to visit Radovan while he was held in the Belgrade's War Crimes Court. In any normal country, he would be arrested and charged for helping wanted fugitive evade justice.
Meanwhile, Karadzic Family Gets Passports Back
Recently, the international high representative refused to lift Karadzic family's travel ban so they can visit Radovan in Belgrade prison cell. He said that the children of Radovan Karadzic—Sonja and Sasha—“will have the opportunity to see their father for many years to come, which cannot be said of the victims from Srebrenica and many other places.” Unfortunately, Lajcak changed his stance today and returned them travel documents so they can go and visit the monster. Srebrenica genocide survivor, Munira Subasic lost 22 members of her family - she won't be able to see them ever again.
