I nearly choked on my breakfast this morning when I heard Radovan Karadzic’s claims that he was a misunderstood man and should be considered a ‘peacemaker’ in his opening defence at The Hague war crimes tribunal.
Karadzic is on trail for alleged war crimes in Bosnia in which 100,000 people were killed including a massacre in Srebrenica.
His comments are hypocritical and offensive to the Bosnian people. In researching my book Not Like My Mother it was evident to me that Karadzic played a major role in crimes against humanity, some of the worst seen since World War II. Let’s hope justice is served.
