Tito in my eyes never ever died in Slovenia - I was cursed by Borut Pahor who was cursed out back in his face and so was Kučan once Tito possibly was selected by Belgrade to be removed from the picture and transported back to Belgrade

Tito was still too strong to have died that day at my age 9. Here exactly is what was Josip Broz Tito using me for:
Josip Broz Tito was using me to bring on the picture people like RADOVAN KARAĐIĆ, Mladić,  Šešelj etc....there was a relation between myself and Karađić who was the one who at times would also deliver me to Vojnik and other Slovenian psychiatric institutions. Disgraced Josip Broz Tito who knew have committed most severe crimes against humanity by subjecting me to murderous(torturous) practices since I was practically a baby was looking for his way out by getting me killed systematically through involvement in the crime against me a SERBIAN fraction known as chetniks - Josip Broz Tito I REMEMBER begun at advice of other high ranking Yugoslav apparatchiks to remove from the case anyone involved with partsian movement and whom beast used initially to get killing done and have begun to place on picture solely SERBIAN CHETNIKS. Not Croatian Ustashas nor Slovenian white guards, but Serbian chetniks. Those, however, upon his "death" went on to change landscape of Yugoslav politics by involving in picture also Croatian Ustashas and Slovenian white guards due to what they anticipated was coming war which they were developing. Murderous beast didn't want to recognize I survived one - he cried to Milan Kučan and Borut Pahor to get me killed on what supposedly was his death bed despite knowing he was mentally ill https://ausertimes.blogspot.com/2024/04/next-to-psychiatric-hospital-ljubljana.html
Poor Josip Broz Tito was acknowledged by many during what were his personal deliveries into Slovenian psychiatric institutions as MENTALLY ILL AND THAT INCLUDED PSYCHIATRISTS EMPLOYED IN THERE WHO COULDN'T BELIEVE THEIR EYES ABOUT WHAT WENT ON. Karađić listed one as totally sick old man in his book. Karađić was extremely nice to me just as psychiatrist Peter Kapš who became involved at latter stage and all other psychiatrists till one got job from Tito, but once he got job - things changed. Karađić was nice to me as much as burring of the brain with unbearable pain to a child can be pleasant till Tito's death in 1980...then Karađić became more and more openly violent with his partner Momčilo Krajišnik. Reached peek of violence and expressed total disregard due to Belgrade connections in 1982 and got briefly arrested in 1984 - continued his career of violence by using even his daughter whom he made me flirt with to express disdain for me and what changed once she gain weight and got rejected by other guys and since they simply couldn't break me enough for me to abandon studies but its when I no longer wanted to have to do with any of them. I was labeled as a Slovenian nationalist which was a necessary part Yugo separation which chetniks still tried their best to stop by simply killing people in Slovenia, Croatia, Kosovo, and I anticipate also Montenegro/Macedonia. Karađić was born in Montenegro but was a Serb and was delivered on picture by fathers' sister husband who was from Montenegro(a Yugo military general ranking officer)

Josipo Broz Tito was not interested in whatever Slovenian, Croatian, Macedonian, Montenegrin, or Bosnian sides have to tell whenever bi monthly reports were delivered to Belgrade - he only took note from Serbs who lived also in those areas and that means he policed Slovenia, Bosnia, Croatia, Macedonia, Kosovo for the sake of the greater Serbia where he lived and where his wife was from.

Slovenian priest Franček Križnik didn't die as is listed but continue to live in Germany for another 20 years. Milan Kučan immediately had one retired with German authorities.

Josip Broz have through my case lost faith in a communist party(atheism) due to inability to get me killed and strange natural phenomenas one found himself in when near me. There was more than probably man made earthquakes which if truly man made appeared out of blue. He alone felt have betrayed his party by secret visits to church and declared me during his official departure(I suspect fake death certificate most likely) would have priest summoned to his death bed as a sign of truce with me - wouldn't acknowledge it as a defeat although it sounded like....something I was cursed while Franček Križnik had to live in denial preferably as he alone requested in Germany. All was arraigned between Milan Kučan and German government. Križnik was rather partially blonde light skinned individual. A priest whom apparently I liked and what Tito in a way outright hated - it could also be Tito summoned one to his dead bed because one learned from me how to get people really mad which he definitely did.

School scores really suffered because of this wonderful old man and my father was loosing his mind insisting me how it has to stop because they will destroy me and begun to demand higher pay at his work to financially compensate private tutors with which he believed would somehow stop MK Ultra bestiality - Belgrade didn't care and/or it could be as I had to even accept abuse by giving teachers green light to abuse me so father could get me private tutors - cared in a sense of getting me killed what most likely was the truth. I had to acknowledge Anton Bučar that torture which went on in the school was for my sake. To stop MK Ultra bestiality. 

Garbage like Mike Tyson specialized himself in a private profile of Josip Broz Tito which American CIA supplied one with and have even continue with imitation of one's abuse in my face to degree that I wondered at times about what went on if you already want to know the truth about black American ear biting beast. Meaning that CIA supplied one with more than dossier/file of my case - most likely even audio recordings of Josip Broz Tito performing torture on me and the technique used to break one down during MK Ultra which was always directed toward "because of this and that I will never let you go....". Mike Tyson back in the day loved nothing more than to cause psychological harm/pain but then again used my case to himself as myself - ultimate victim of this world befiore facing with his opponents, training preparations sake, and enjoyed watching me fall apart. Thats why

American black community who learned to earn money through torture by first earning cause for the right to torture committed against me probably some 2.000.000 racially charged hate crimes. That much about I CAN'T BREATH. 

Don't worry about Kržnik - he did cursed me out as was custom for church. I have NO REASON WHATSOEVER TO SEE MYSELF IN CHURCH. I know that God hates church. Church all to often played in my life nothing more than evil with rather mentally ill individual employed in one - hiding from a fucking reality and as many stated even committing pedophilia in there. They sure went on to commit numerous ethically racially charged hate crimes against me to earn their $$$$ "trust", but not before they had governments impoverish community where money would afterwards leak. Nowhere more than in Vatican pope Francis alone knows.

Although invited to ride with police cars such as Lada, stojadin, even Renault 18 - Tito always rode in his limousines and/or Mercedes. Because I begun to hate stojadin which looked like a dumpster next to his Mercedeses or whatever limousine one was using, he took a short ride next to me in stjadin - I became demanding and have insisted for myself on

use of cars as you see what didn't go well in eyes of police officers/bodyguards...Tito once I reached age 4 - 5 begun to use separate transport and begun to complain how this one or that one saw me next to him and Jovanka - he had problem with witnesses and was also advised by security services to keep me away from spotlight and this way had me transported with police next to his cars. At locations where sometimes I would be delivered 10 minutes apart from his arrival or  even at the same time or half an hour or what became even standard by police two hours earlier or would what also was becoming a factor be delivered to locations day before he would arrive etc. Milan Kučan used on frequent bases stojadin till Renault 18 came on the picture - I should say stojadin or what became Renault 18...Kučan did his best to give low profile impression. He feared Belgrade like priests fear God.

Often times, Tito after excusing himself for the rest/sleep etc. also left hotels without people noticing or would simply use security service to disburse crowds I cite, "now your comrade Tito is off to rest you may all leave now" - for anyone still wanting to know more a security service employees would only give weird look in their face and people already rushed in ther directions while he would proceed to change cars in front of hotels and head elsewhere - or would even leave Jovanka at the hotel atv her own world for few hours. He always kept Jovanka next to him and Jovanka hated if he escaped her only for few hours blaming me afterwards to get one in trouble for taking more exciting time.

VW Golfs also became the thing for police if heading from Belgrade in direction of Ljubljana as I already described with police rushing ahead to the police checkpoints from where they expanded highway security. They would have me seat next to police officers at times and/or Tito. I know that Borut Pahor spent time talking to me about comrade Tito during his death, but I don't think he knew shit about what truly went on. There were Krajišnik alike Serbs in Ljubljana and those who arrived from Belgrade to Ljubljana of which some were as fishy as anything can be in this world and brainwash with possible lies how one no longer wants to see me went on immediately. Once delivered to Belgrade - Serbs wasted no time with all sorts of issues which involved Tito moving to Bosnia to retire and so on. Whether a real Tito was used I do not know, but at one point and time even a Tito's Belgrade family begun to participate in it making either wild claims or simply disclosing truth. Chetniks took over completely. It was time for Milošević if there ever was any difference between chetniks and Yugoslav communists

as they called themselves as. Even that from family of Serbian chetniks, psychiatrist Karađić hated nationalists and its what West is using today strike out(outline) its white power toward rest of the world which as such is forced to acknowledge one. Nazism is equaled with so called white nationalism - a new term which never ever existed in the history of the world till recent decades when American EEOC came to conclusion with Southern Poverty Center would represent with FBI and other national security agencies based in Germany, UK, SCANDINAVIA infront of the world a Western governments as a form of tolerant righteous legitimate formation rather than bloody colonial even neonazi leftovers by joining under umbrella of the term "white" as many as possible nations willing to governmentally associate with them through selection of individuals whom governments would together brand as white domestic terrorists thus giving a false impression to world about about "white" and "tolerance" issues till enough power is gained to commence Karađić's process. Till no longer needed that is.

Momčilo Krajišnik absolutely didn't due to Coronavirus and I know so because he told me in the face during my being hijacked from Poland by Slovenian police to also his location in 2020 that he no longer wants to participate and will file for fake death certificate instead. As for Radovan Karađić in 2020 who also met me, he stated will also not support my case but pleaded with government would retain the ability to watch me - did all he could to make impression on my being video surveillanced 24/7 with whole thing transmitted to certain parties involved in MK Ultra which I will not deny not agree with it specially due to his nature of profession - trained to lie, steal, and as it became evident mass kill. Slovenia without a doubt in my case was and is  nothing more than a prison. Sometimes prison on open and sometimes even behind walls of psychiatric institutions. Slovenia police begun to daydream would have me transported to psychiatric hospital Ormož or to Maribor on next occasion where in Ormož they even built private beach next to crazy sanatorium which they had me visit on numerous occasions. 

It was Milan Kučan who wanted me at Ormož where also severe a abuse took place - it was Milan's preferred destination for me where little Yugo Hitler wanted to continue to keep up with me not too far from his home. It became a custom in newly independent Slovenia for Golobič/Anton Rop's Peterle Kučan Pahor etc. elite with staff from psychiatric hospital Ljubljana Polje to dine and sunbath massage swim in area of Ormož while keeping me locked inside of the psychiatric hospital Ormož and in which vicinity in the rear of hospital as well as along river police also enforced physical torture right out on open with what also were to make whole thing semi normal a walks next to Milan Kučan - hiking. Physical torture which went from streets of Ormož all the way to gates(same with Ljubljana Polje and other psychiatric institutions/prisons in Slovenia) of the asylum where asked by police on million occasions l cite "now lets see if you will find the way back"....no, people didn't care about it here. They were addicted to lyeing and killing. People on general care when truth comes out. Its when their conscious waked up. 

One thing changed do - beds and interior of psychiatric hospital Ormož were made more acceptable in independent Slovenia when compared to Yugoslavia where I was also left behind by your loving dear maršal Josip Broz Tito...

As for the death of Josip Broz Tito - American CIA and Serbian chetniks(also in Slovenia) searched for anything and anyone that could slightest remind me of Tito - it was session that exploded about Tito in my face doing their best to keep one alive in my head through the use of ongoing trauma....nobody wanted me to deliver subject to surface and psychiatric torture intensified with clearly in my face attempts to get me killed. Mike Tyson is just one of those who didn't succeed in his quest of getting me killed and that is what truly worries one. He heavily invested into Slovenian psychiatry once it became evident he won't be capable to get rid of me as he planned on and begun to demand from one to even depict him to me as a good hearted person who sided with me all along. Bunch of Biden Trump made horse made America great again shit https://ausertimes.blogspot.com/2024/04/about-mike-tysons-involvement-n-my-case.html

During Tito's transport to Belgrade from Ljubjana, I was told about a week ahead they came to pick up Tito from Belgrade who would drive with them back to Belgrade on what official transport from Ljubljana to Belgrade would take place. I assume Tito left to Belgrade even two days before his official transport and also must mention that whoever from Bosnia was selected to create artificial Josip Broz Tito two years ahead of Tito's official funeral and what also was used during Tito's funeral to make people believe it was a real Tito. I had no way to verify any information pertaining to Tito as 100% legitimate as someone who was subjected to MK Ultra procedure during which most of accounts which took place, however, were real...Russians and Serbs were obsessed with lies and violence their job/goal was not to stress truth but to made lies believable enough through torture/abuse for me to endup inside of the mental asylum by making irrational or even better easily proven wrong statements.

Just as I described already earlier - Josip Broz Tito was hated by Serbs for loss of Kosovo and Serbs including Tito were determined to prevent loss of Bosnia to Muslims. Serbian chetniks from Belgrade were giving one repeated ultimatum IN HIS FACE IN HIS BELGRADE RESIDENCY years ahead about his must departure and its where they fit me on the picture. Tito very very likely never ever died in Slovenia and have lived for another decade in Serbia. They had such individual who presented himself as Tito to me in Belgrade after his official death, but I no longer wanted to have anything to do with one. I had to develop whole thing into semi physical confrontation to stop meeting already dead Tito whenever delivered to Belgrade. Resided in some luxurious apartment building in Belgrade.

The one who inherited the case from Josip Broz Tito according to UDBA and Kučan was Milan Kučan with whom, however, I already had a rough start since early childhood and whom I will recognize if ever ONLY with barb wire around his neck at main Ljubljana square after summoning criminal to the court. There was or is nothing human about this Titoistic sadistic murderous UDBA swine. Police as you see is doing job - violence moved from physical onto virtual world as it reads main RTV Slovenia headline today and you know what that means...Slovenia still is a concentration camp on open.

Presenetilo vas bo, s kom je Tito želel govoriti v bolnici tik pred smrtjo Ko je ležal v ljubljanskem kliničnem centru, je želel govoriti z duhovnikom. Cerkev je to nalogo zaupala duhovniku Frančku Križniku.

Radovan Karadžić (Serbian CyrillicРадован Караџићpronounced [râdoʋaːn kâradʒitɕ]; born 19 June 1945) is a Bosnian Serb politician who was convicted of genocidecrimes against humanity and war crimes by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY).[2] He was the president of Republika Srpska during the Bosnian War.

Trained as a psychiatrist, he co-founded the Serb Democratic Party in Bosnia and Herzegovina and served as the first president of Republika Srpska from 1992 to 1996. He was a fugitive from 1996 until July 2008, after having been indicted for war crimes by the ICTY.[3] The indictment concluded there were reasonable grounds for believing he committed war crimes, including genocide against Bosniak and Croat civilians during the Bosnian War (1992–1995).[3] While a fugitive, he worked at a private clinic in Belgrade, specializing in alternative medicine and psychology, under an alias.[4]

He was arrested in Belgrade in 2008 and brought before Belgrade's War Crimes Court a few days later.[3] Extradited to the Netherlands, he was placed in the custody of the ICTY in the United Nations Detention Unit of Scheveningen, where he was charged with 11 counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity.[5][6] He is sometimes referred to by the Western media as the "Butcher of Bosnia",[7][8][9] a sobriquet also applied to former Army of Republika Srpska (VRS) General Ratko Mladić.[10][11][12] In 2016, he was found guilty of the genocide in Srebrenica, war crimes, and crimes against humanity, 10 of the 11 charges in total, and sentenced to 40 years' imprisonment.[13][14] In 2019, an appeal he had filed against his conviction was rejected, and the sentence was increased to life imprisonment.[15] In 2021, it was announced that he would be transferred to a British prison.[16]

Early life and education

Publicity photo of Karadžić in 1971

Radovan Karadžić was born to a Serb family on 19 June 1945 in the village of Petnjica in the People's Republic of MontenegroDemocratic Federal Yugoslavia, near Šavnik.[17] Karadžić's father, Vuko (1912–1987),[18][19] was a cobbler from Petnjica. His mother, Jovanka (née Jakić; 1922–2005),[20] was a peasant girl from Pljevlja. She married Karadžić's father in 1943, aged twenty.[17] Karadžić claims to be related to the Serbian linguistic reformer Vuk Stefanović Karadžić (1787–1864), although as of 2014 this claim had not been confirmed.[21]

His father had been a Chetnik – i.e. a member of the army of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia's government-in-exile during World War II – and was imprisoned by the post-war communist regime for much of his son's childhood.[22] Karadžić moved to Sarajevo in 1960 to study psychiatry at the Sarajevo University School of Medicine.[23] In spite of the fact that his father fought in a war, Karadžić himself held no military-orientated ambitions. It is widely believed that he never served his then-obligatory 1-year long military service within the Yugoslav People's Army, as such claim was given by Stjepan Kljujić, who was a Croat-member of the Bosnian rotating presidency.[24]

Karadžić studied neurotic disorders and depression at Næstved Hospital in Denmark in 1970, and during 1974 and 1975 he underwent further medical training at Columbia University in New York.[9][25] After his return to Yugoslavia, he worked in the Koševo Hospital in Sarajevo.[26] He was also a poet, influenced by Serbian writer Dobrica Ćosić, who encouraged him to go into politics. During his spell as an ecologist, he declared that "Bolshevism is bad, but nationalism is even worse".[27]

Financial misdeeds

Soon after graduation, Karadžić started working in a treatment centre at the psychiatric clinic of the main Sarajevo hospital, Koševo. According to testimony, he often boosted his income by issuing false medical and psychological evaluations to healthcare workers who wanted early retirement or to criminals who tried to avoid punishment by pleading insanity.[28] In 1983, Karadžić started working at a hospital in the Belgrade suburb of Voždovac. With his partner Momčilo Krajišnik, then manager of a mining enterprise Energoinvest, he managed to gain a loan from an agricultural-development fund, and they used it to build themselves houses in Pale, a Serb town above Sarajevo turned into a ski resort by the government.[28]

File picture taken upon Karadžić's arrest in November 1984

On 1 November 1984, the two men were arrested for fraud and spent 11 months in detention before their friend Nikola Koljević managed to bail them out.[27][28] Due to a lack of evidence, Karadžić was released and his trial was brought to a halt. The trial was revived, however, and on 26 September 1985 Karadžić was sentenced to three years in prison for embezzlement and fraud. As he had already spent over a year in detention, Karadžić did not serve the remaining sentence in prison.[29]

Political life

Following encouragement from Dobrica Ćosić, later the first president of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, and Jovan Rašković, leader of the Croatian Serbs, Karadžić cofounded the Serb Democratic Party (Srpska Demokratska Stranka) in Bosnia and Herzegovina in 1989. The party aimed at unifying the Republic's Bosnian Serb community and joining Croatian Serbs in leading them in remaining as part of Yugoslavia in the event of secession by those two republics from the federation.

Throughout September 1991, the SDS began to establish various "Serb Autonomous Regions" throughout Bosnia-Herzegovina. After the Bosnian parliament voted on sovereignty on 15 October 1991, a separate Serb Assembly was founded on 24 October 1991 in Banja Luka, to exclusively represent the Serbs in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The following month, Bosnian Serbs held a referendum which resulted in an overwhelming vote in favour of staying in a federal state with Serbia and Montenegro, as part of Yugoslavia. In December 1991, a top secret document, For the organisation and activity of the Serbian people in Bosnia-Herzegovina in extraordinary circumstances, was drawn up by the SDS leadership. This was a centralised programme for the takeover of each municipality in the country, through the creation of shadow governments and para-governmental structures through various "crisis headquarters", and by preparing loyalist Serbs for the takeover in co-ordination with the Yugoslav People's Army (JNA).[30]

On 9 January 1992, the Bosnian Serb Assembly proclaimed the Republic of the Serb People of Bosnia and Herzegovina (Република српског народа Босне и Херцеговине/Republika srpskog naroda Bosne i Hercegovine). On 28 February 1992, the constitution of the Serb Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina was adopted. It declared that the state's territory included Serb autonomous regions, municipalities, and other Serbian ethnic entities in Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as "all regions in which the Serbian people represent a minority due to the Second World War genocide" (although how this was established was never specified), and that it was to be a part of the federal Yugoslav state. On 29 February and 1 March 1992 a referendum on the independence of Bosnia and Herzegovina from Yugoslavia was held. Many Serbs boycotted the referendum and pro-independence Bosniaks (Bosnian Muslims) and Croats turned out.[31]

President of Republika Srpska

On 6 and 7 April 1992, Bosnia and Herzegovina was recognized as an independent state by the European Community[32] and the United States.[33] It was admitted as a member to the United Nations on 22 May 1992.[34]

Karadžić was voted President of Republika Srpska, the Bosnian Serb administration, in Pale on about 13 May 1992 after the breakup of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. At the time he assumed this position, his de jure powers, as described in the constitution of the Bosnian Serb administration, included commanding the army of the Bosnian Serb administration in times of war and peace, and having the authority to appoint, promote and discharge officers of the army. Karadžić made three trips to the UN in New York in February and March 1993 for negotiations on the future of Bosnia.[35]

He went to Moscow in 1994 for meetings with Russian officials on the Bosnian situation.[36] In 1994, the Greek Orthodox Church declared Karadžić "one of the most prominent sons of our Lord Jesus Christ working for peace", and decorated him with the nine-hundred-year-old Knights' Order of the First Rank of Saint Dionysius of Xanthe.[37] Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew announced that "the Serbian people have been chosen by God to protect the western frontiers of Orthodoxy".[37]

On Friday 4 August 1995, with a massive Croatian military force poised to attack the Serb-held Krajina region in central Croatia, Karadžić announced he was removing General Ratko Mladić from his commandant post and assuming personal command of the VRS himself. Karadžić blamed Mladić for the loss of two key Serb-held towns in western Bosnia that had recently fallen to the Croats, and he used the loss of the towns as the excuse to announce his surprise command structure changes. General Mladić was demoted to an "adviser". Mladić refused to go quietly, claiming the support of the Bosnian Serb military and the people. Karadžić countered by attempting to pull political rank as well as denouncing Mladić as a "madman", but Mladić's popular support forced Karadžić to rescind his order on 11 August.[38]

War crimes charges

Karadžić was accused by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) of personal and command responsibility for numerous war crimes committed against non-Serbs, in his roles as Supreme Commander of the Bosnian Serb armed forces and President of the National Security Council of the Republika Srpska. He was accused by the same authority of being responsible for the deaths of more than 7,500 Bosniaks (Muslims). Under his direction and command, Bosnian Serb forces initiated the Siege of Sarajevo. He was accused by the ICTY of ordering the Srebrenica genocide in 1995, directing Bosnian Serb forces to "create an unbearable situation of total insecurity with no hope of further survival of life" in the UN safe area. He was also accused by the ICTY of ordering that United Nations personnel be taken hostage in May–June 1995.[39]

He was jointly indicted by the International Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia in 1995, along with General Ratko Mladić. The indictment charged Karadžić on the basis of his individual criminal responsibility (Article 7(1) of the Statute) and superior criminal responsibility (Article 7(3) of the Statute) with:

  • Five counts of crimes against humanity (Article 5 of the Statute – extermination, murder, persecutions on political, racial and religious grounds, persecutions, inhumane acts (forcible transfer));
  • Three counts of violations of the laws of war (Article 3 of the Statute – murder, unlawfully inflicting terror upon civilians, taking hostages);
  • One count of grave breaches of the Geneva Conventions (Article 2 of the Statute – willful killing).[40]
  • Unlawful transfer of civilians because of religious or national identity.[41]

The United States government offered a $5 million reward for his and Ratko Mladić's arrests.[42]


Authorities missed arresting Karadžić in 1995 when he was an invitee of the United Nations. During his visit to the UN headquarters in 1993, he was handed a service of process for a civil claim under the United States of America's Alien Tort Act. The Courts ruled that Karadžić was properly served and the trial was allowed to proceed in a United States District Court.[43]

Karadžić's ability to evade capture for over a decade increased his esteem among some Bosnian Serbs, despite an alleged deal with Richard Holbrooke.[44] Some sources allege that he received protection from the United States as a consequence of the Dayton Agreement.[45] Holbrooke, however, repeatedly denied that such a deal was ever made.[46]

During his time as fugitive he was helped by several people, including Boško Radonjić and in 2001, hundreds of supporters demonstrated in support of Karadžić in his home town.[47] In March 2003, his mother Jovanka publicly urged him to surrender.[48]

British officials conceded military action was unlikely to be successful in bringing Karadžić and other suspects to trial, and that putting political pressure on Balkan governments would be more likely to succeed.[49]

In May 2004, the UN learned that: "the brother of a war crimes suspect allegedly in the process of providing information on Radovan Karadžić and his network to the ICTY, was mistakenly killed in a raid by the Republika Srpska police" and added that "It is being argued that the informer was targeted in order to silence him before he was able to say more."[50]

In 2005, Bosnian Serb leaders called on Karadžić to surrender, stating that Bosnia and Serbia could not move ahead economically or politically while he remained at large. After a failed raid earlier in May, on 7 July 2005 NATO troops arrested Karadžić's son, Aleksandar, but released him after 10 days.[51] On 28 July, Karadžić's wife, Ljiljana, made a call for him to surrender after what she called "enormous pressure".[52]

The BBC reported that Karadžić had been sighted in 2005 near Foča: "38 km (24 miles) down the road, on the edge of the Sutjeska national park, Radovan Karadžić has just got out of a red Mercedes" and asserted that "Western intelligence agencies knew roughly where they were, but that there was no political will in London or Washington to risk the lives of British, or U.S. agents, in a bid to seize" him and Mladić.[53]

On 10 January 2008, the BBC reported that the passports of his closest relatives had been seized.[54] On 21 February 2008, at the time Kosovo declared independence, portraits of Karadžić were on display during Belgrade's "Kosovo is Serbia protest".[55][56]

Since 1999[57] Karadžić had been masquerading as a "new age" expert in alternative medicine using the fake name "D.D. David" printed on his business cards. The initials apparently stood for "Dragan Dabić"; officials said he was also using the name "Dr. Dragan David Dabić".[58][59][60] He lectured in front of hundreds of people on alternative medicine. He had his own website, where he offered his assistance in the treatment of sexual problems and disorders by using what he called "Human Quantum Energy".[61]

Allegedly evading capture in Austria

There were reports that Karadžić evaded capture in May 2007 in Vienna, where he lived under the name Petar Glumac, posing as a Croatian seller of herbal solutions and ointments. Austrian police talked to him during the raid regarding an unrelated homicide case in the area where Karadžić lived but failed to recognize his real identity. He had obtained a Croatian passport in the name of Petar Glumac and claimed to be in Vienna for training.[62] The police did not ask any further questions nor demanded to fingerprint him as he appeared calm and readily answered questions.[63] Nevertheless, this claim came into doubt when a man named Petar Glumac, an alternative medical practitioner from Banatsko Novo Selo, Serbia, claims to have been the person the police talked with in Vienna.[64] Glumac reportedly bears a striking resemblance to Karadžić's appearance as Dragan Dabić.[65] Dragan Karadžić, his nephew, claimed in an interview to the Corriere della Sera that Karadžić attended football matches of Serie A and visited Venice under the name of Petar Glumac.[66]

The arrest of Radovan Karadžić took place on 21 July 2008 in Belgrade.[3] He was in hiding, posing as a doctor of alternative medicine mostly in Belgrade but also in Vienna, Austria.[67] Karadžić was transferred into ICTY custody in The Hague on 30 July.[68] Karadžić appeared before judge Alphons Orie on 31 July, in the tribunal, which has sentenced 64 accused since 1993.[69] During the first hearing Radovan Karadžić expressed a fear for his life by saying: "If Holbrooke wants my death and regrets there is no death sentence at this court, I want to know if his arm is long enough to reach me here."[70] and stated that the deal he made with Richard Holbrooke is the reason why it took 13 years for him to appear in front of the ICTY.[71] He made similar accusations against the former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.[72] Muhamed Sacirbey, Bosnian foreign minister at the time, claimed that a Karadžić-Holbrooke deal was made in July 1996.[73]

In August 2008, Karadžić claimed there is a conspiracy against him and refused to enter a plea, whereupon the court entered a plea of not guilty on his behalf to all 11 charges.[74] He called the tribunal, chaired by Scottish judge Iain Bonomy, a "court of NATO" disguised as a court of the international community.[75]

On 13 October 2009, the BBC reported that Karadžić's plea to be granted immunity from his charges was denied. However, the start of his trial was moved to 26 October so he could prepare a defense.[76]

On Monday 26 October 2009, Karadžić's trial was suspended after 15 minutes after he carried out his threat to boycott the start of the hearing. Judge O-Gon Kwon said that in the absence of Karadžić, who was defending himself, or any lawyer representing him, he was suspending the case for 24 hours, when the prosecution would begin its opening statement.[77] On 5 November 2009, the court imposed a lawyer on him, and postponed his trial until 1 March 2010.[78]

On 26 November 2009, Karadžić filed a motion challenging the legal validity and legitimacy of the tribunal, claiming that "the UN Security Council lacked the power to establish the ICTY, violated agreements under international law in so doing, and delegated non-existent legislative powers to the ICTY",[79] to which the Prosecution response was that "The Appeals Chamber has already determined the validity of the Tribunal’s creation in previous decisions which constitute established precedent on this issue", therefore dismissing the Motion.[80] The prosecution started its case on 13 April 2010, and completed it on 25 May 2012.[81] The discovery of more than 300 previously unknown bodies in a mass grave at the Tomasica mine near Prijedor in September 2013 caused a flurry of motions which ended with the court denying reopening prosecutorial evidence.[82] The defence began its case on 16 October 2012 and completed it in March 2014; Karadžić decided not to testify.[83] Closing arguments in the case began on 29 September 2014 and were concluded on 7 October 2014,[84] Karadžić having failed in his demand for a re-trial.[85]

Bosnian genocide trial

Karadžić and Mladić were placed on trial for charges of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes committed in Srebrenica, Prijedor, Ključ, and other districts of Bosnia. They were charged, separately, with:[86]

  • Count 1: Genocide. On 28 June 2012, the trial chamber granted a defence motion for acquittal on this count as "the evidence, even if taken at its highest, did not reach the level from which a reasonable trier of fact could conclude that genocide occurred in the municipalities [in question]". Motions for acquittal on nine other counts were dismissed. The Appeals Chamber subsequently concluded that the court had erred and reinstated Count 1 on 11 July 2013.
  • Count 2: Genocide.
  • Count 3: Persecutions on Political, Racial and Religious Grounds, a Crime Against Humanity.
  • Count 4: Extermination, a Crime Against Humanity.
  • Count 5: Murder, a Crime Against Humanity.
  • Count 6: Murder, a Violation of the Laws or Customs of War.
  • Count 7: Deportation, a Crime Against Humanity.
  • Count 8: Inhumane Acts (forcible transfer), a Crime Against Humanity.
  • Count 9: Acts of Violence the Primary Purpose of which is to Spread Terror among the Civilian Population, a Violation of the Laws or Customs of War.
  • Count 10: Unlawful Attacks on Civilians, a Violation of the Laws or Customs of War.
  • Count 11: Taking of Hostages, a Violation of the Laws or Customs of War.

The Yugoslav war crimes court rejected on 27 June 2012 one of the two genocide charges against Karadžić.[87][88] However, on 11 July 2013, the Appeals Chamber reinstated these charges.

Conviction and sentence

On 24 March 2016, he was found guilty of genocidewar crimes, and crimes against humanity, and sentenced to 40 years imprisonment.[89] He was found guilty of genocide for the Srebrenica massacre, which aimed to kill "every able-bodied male" in the town and systematically exterminate the Bosnian Muslim community. He was also convicted of persecution, extermination, deportation and forcible transfer (ethnic cleansing), and murder in connection with his campaign to drive Bosnian Muslims and Croats out of villages claimed by Serb forces. He avoided conviction on a second count of genocide in seven Bosnian towns but was found guilty in that case on a reduced charge of extermination.[13]

On 27 February 2018, it was announced by the Mechanism for International Criminal Tribunals that hearings for the appeal against the conviction were set on 23 April 2018.[90] The appeal was rejected on 20 March 2019, and the sentence was increased to life imprisonment.[15] On 12 May 2021, it was announced that, with the agreement of the UK authorities, he would serve the rest of his sentence in a UK prison.[16] The incarceration site has since been identified as HMP Isle of Wight,[91][92] and specifically the HMP Parkhurst site.[93]
