MOCKERY OF THE INTERNATIONAL JUSTICE
"Complete the physical separation of Srebrenica from Zepa as soon as possible, preventing even communication between individuals in the two enclaves. By planned and well-thought out combat operations, create an unbearable situation of total insecurity with no hope of further survival or life for the inhabitants of Srebrenica."
The presiding judge O-Gon Kwon wrote that Karadzic has already "substantially and persistently obstructed the proper and expeditious conduct of his trial by refusing to attend the proceedings until such time as he considers himself to be ready." That "effectively brought the trial to a halt, which is evidently his purpose."
The judge added that should Karadzic "continue to absent himself from the resumed trial proceedings in March, or should he engage in any other conduct that obstructs the proper and expeditious conduct of the trial, he will forfeit his right to self-representation ... and the appointed counsel will take over."
Karadzic "cannot reasonably claim to require many more months to prepare for trial when his preparation includes matters that are not, and will not be, the subject of the trial," Kwon said, citing statements by Karadzic that he plans to show who was responsible for "the outbreak of the war."
Karadzic - in his own words
On the eve of the war, Karadzic said that Muslims would ‘disappear from the face of the earth’, that Sarajevo will become ‘a black cauldron where 300,000 Muslims will die’, that he, Karadzic, would tell ‘Europe to go fuck off and stay away until we have finished the job’. According to the prosecution, those quotes clearly indicate the mens rea of the accused and his intent in the war.
The Prosecutor Alan Tieger submitted into evidence statements made by Karadzic, including:
"For the benefit of our people we will do anything we have to do, without mercy."
"They have to know that there are 20,000 armed Serbs around Sarajevo . . . it will be a black cauldron where 300,000 Muslims will die."
"They will disappear. That people will disappear from the face of the Earth."
"I think it is clear to the army and clear to everyone. It will be a real bloodbath."
"Europe will be told to go f*** itself and not to come back until the job is finished."
"No Muslim foundations shall ever be laid in Serb areas and Serbian villages... All foundations that are laid will be blown up. You must not sell land to the Muslims . . . this is a fight to the finish. It is a battle for living space."
