THE TRIAL OF RADOVAN KARADZIC RESUMES MARCH 1, OVERVIEW
Radovan Karadzic wanted to wipe-out the Bosnian Muslims from the face of earth. The campaign of ethnic cleansing and massacres against the Bosniak population culminated to genocide in July of 1995. The Srebrenica Genocide resulted in the forcible removal of 30,000 and execution-style massacres of 8,100 Bosniaks. Karadzic, however, never kept his genocidal intentions private.
Here are some of Radovan Karadzic's statements:
On October 12th 1991 he stated: "They [Bosnian Muslims] will disappear, these people will disappear from the face of the earth"
A mere day later, on 13 October 1991, Karadzic, talking to Momcilo Mandic, said: "Within a few days there will be no Sarajevo, and there will be over 500,000 dead; within a month the Muslims of Bosnia-Herzegovina will be destroyed!"
Again, on 15 October 1991, Karadzic foresees the extermination of the Muslims in the event of war. Talking to Miodrag Davidovic and his own brother Luka, Karadzic said: "In the first instance, none of their leaders will remain alive, they will be killed within 3 or 4 hours. They will have no chance of surviving."
Miroslav Deronjic, a former Bosnian Serb politician who was in charge of campaign of ethnic cleansing and massacres of the Bosniak population of Bratunac and Srebrenica, testified in a Krstic pre-appeal hearing - how he met Radovan Karadzic in early July 1995, shortly before Serbs attacked the United Nations-declared ''safe area'' of Srebrenica in eastern Bosnia.
''At one moment, he said the following sentence to me, "Miroslav, all of them need to be killed -- whatever you can lay your hands on."
In March 1995, Radovan Karadzic issued a directive to the Bosnian Serb Army - known as “Directive 7” - which specified that the Bosnian Serb Army was to:
"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."
In 2000, Radovan Karadzic was ordered by a U.S. jury to pay $4.5 billion in damages for atrocities committed by his soldiers. The U.S. Government placed $5 million bounty on his head. Karadzic's victims did not get a "penny."
On 3 December 2009, President of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) addressed the United Nations Security Council:
"The President reiterated his call for a claims commission by which the victims of crimes committed during the wars in the former Yugoslavia could seek compensation for their injuries: 'Justice is not only about punishing perpetrators, but also about restoring dignity to victims by ensuring that they have concrete means to rebuild their lives,' he said.
