DID YOU KNOW?  -- Three years before the 1995 Srebrenica Genocide, Serbs torched Bosniak villages and killed at least 3,166 Bosniaks around Srebrenica. In 1993, the UN described the besieged situation in Srebrenica as a "slow-motion process of genocide." In July 1995, Serbs forcibly expelled 25,000 Bosniaks, brutally raped many women and girls, and systematically killed 8,000+ men and boys (DNA confirmed).

Radovan Karadzic claimed that Bosniaks shelled their own people and planted a prosthetic leg to stage Markale massacre. Prosecutors responded by producing evidence that identified disabled Bosniak man - who had a prosthetic leg - as a victim of the 1994 Markale massacre.

Since the start of his trial, Radovan Karadzic defended himself by denying absolutely any wrongdoing. He denies the Srebrenica genocide, and other massacres that forces under his command orchestrated, including two markale massacres in Sarajevo.

Both Markale massacres have been controversial incidents with Bosnian Serbs alleging that Bosniaks shelled themselves to gain world sympathy and provoke NATO attacks on Serb forces around Sarajevo. However, the International Criminal Tribunal ruled in two high profile cases (General Stanislav Galic and General Dragomir Milosevic) that Serb forces were - beyond any reasonable doubt - responsible for both massacres. But, Radovan Karadzic is a living example of a man in complete denial and disconnect with reality.

In his ongoing genocide trial, Karadzic attempted to 'prove', yet again, that the first Markale massacre was 'staged.' He told the judges that Bosnian government planted fake bodies for camera crews: "Here’s the leg again, after the purported explosion, but in fact it’s a prosthetic leg that we have just seen."

However, the fact is that prosthetic leg belonged to the actual victim - Camil Begic. According to SENSE Tribunal:

"The prosecution has asked for permission to add the name of Almir Begic to the witness list. A prosthetic leg recorded at a video tape belonged to Begic’s late father Camil Begic. Radovan Karadzic used the video tape to prove that the Markale town market massacre in February 1994 was ‘staged’ and that the prosthetic leg was ‘planted’ there... The witness’s father had lost his right leg in an accident in 1961 and when the Markale incident happened he had a prosthetic leg. The prosthetic leg was recorded on a video tape shown by Radovan Karadzic in his opening statement and during the cross-examination of David Harland, head of the civil affairs in the UN mission in Bosnia Herzegovina."

Well done Prosecutors!
