Netherlands: Radovan Karadzic launches appeal to overturn war crimes convictions

Former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic launched an appeal against a sentence for genocide and war crimes at the International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals (MICT) in The Hague, Monday. «We are here today to ask you to overturn Radovan Karadzic’s conviction and order a new trial,» said Peter Robinson, Radovan Karadzic's defence lawyer. «Kate Gibson will address you for the... Еще reminder of this session and show you how the trial went wrong and became an unwieldy out of control mega trial, began with the presumption of guilt based on untested adjudicated facts and written statements premiated by the prosecution's disclosure violations, and concluded with the violation of President Karadzic's right to testify in his own behalf,» he stated. In March 2016 a UN tribunal for the former Yugoslavia found Karadzic guilty of 10 out of 11 counts of genocide, war crimes and other atrocities committed during the Bosnian War. Some of the charges were linked to involvement in the Srebrenica massacre of July 1995.
