KOVACEVIC: ICTY’S ROLE WAS TO DO EVERYTHING ELSE EXCEPT ADMINISTERING JUSTICE

 

BANJALUKA, March 20 /SRNA/ - History will judge the ICTY and all who took part in its work will be ashamed of being a part of a political forgery, SNSD spokesman Radovan Kovacevic told SRNA.

 

Commenting on the life imprisonment rendered on Wednesday to the first Republika Srpska President, Radovan Karadzic, Kovacevic said that Serbs are the greatest victims of the dissolution of Yugoslavia, from Slovenia to Kossovo, and that they have never received legal satisfaction for this. “I am certain that the Serbian people will be saying in the future that someone who is absolutely biased is impartial as the ICTY. History will judge this court and everyone who took part in its work will be ashamed of being a part of this political forgery,” Kovacevic said. He says that the good thing is that this is definitely the end of the ICTY and that peoples in BiH will get an opportunity to arrive at some sort of reconciliation. “Around 100,000 people were killed in the misfortunate civil war in BiH, of whom more than 30,000 are Serbs. There are less than 2% of judgments for crimes against Serbs, and this speaks volumes about the role of the ICTY. Its role was to be everything else except being just,” Kovacevic concluded. The International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals at The Hague rendered the appeals judgment to Karadzic on Wednesday, sentencing him to life imprisonment. The appeals judgment was rendered after appeals against the first instance judgment, by which Karadzic was sentenced to 40 years in prison in 2016, filed by both the defense and prosecution, were reviewed. /end/sg
