As the trial of former Serbian leader Radovan Karadzic gets underway at The Hague Tribunal, a member of Karadzic’s defense team, Goran Petronijevic, said in an interview with RT that he has little hope for a fair trial.

RT: Thank you very much for joining us here on RT. You’ve just returned from The Hague, where you met with Mr. Karadzic. How is he doing in prison?

Goran Petronijevic: Yes, of course, I see him whenever I’m there, I see him almost every working day. This last time, we spoke a lot about our preparation for the appeal.

RT: Nobody in Serbia thinks he’ll get a fair trial at The Hague. Do you think he will?

GP: Certainly, the conditions that the Tribunal gave us, from the very beginning, were more than unfair. Because, unlike us, they had 13 years to prepare the indictment and they have access to unlimited resources and materials. We don’t have that. Only in August this year did we receive approval to have a whole team and only then did we begin to work properly. We will need at least a year to do the whole thing right and to answer the indictment as we think we should. It’s really unfair. And it’s inexplicable why such a rush -why set a trial when nothing is ready yet? Maybe the reason is that the Tribunal is legal only until 31 December, 2010. So what happens after that? If they are in such a rush because of their legal and time limitations, does this mean that this trial will be even more unfair because they have less time? At the end of December, a new resolution from the Council of Safety will be needed so that the Tribunal can continue working. Without that new resolution, the Hague Tribunal will cease to exist. So the destiny and the duration of Hague Tribunal are connected with the decision of Security Council. If any of the members give a veto it will cease to exist. And if the Hague tribunal ceased to exist, then they would need to hand over all their cases, including Mr. Karadzic’s, to national courts – whether in Belgrade, Zagreb or Sarajevo.

Граната која је на сарајевској пијаци "Маркале" 1994. године однијела 68 живота испаљена је, највјероватније, с муслиманских положаја, констатовано је, између осталог, у расправи у Политичком комитету Конгреса САД, гдје су тада предочени извјештаји медија који су преносили изјаве високих званичника ангажованих у БиХ у вези с овим догађајем

Ови наводи уврштени су у званични докуменат Политичког комитета Конгреса САД, који је у вези с овим догађајима у БиХ направљен 1997. године на 16 страна. Расправа у Комитету Конгреса САД започета је расправом о вези САД са испоруком оружја муслиманским снагама у БиХ под насловом "Испоруке иранског оружја које је одобрио Клинтон помажу да се Босна претвори у базу милитантних исламиста".

На расправи су предочени дијелови извјештаја из "Њујорк тајмса", у којем су пренесене изјаве француских мировних војника, који су потврдили да су сигурни да је граната испаљена с муслиманских положаја.

Former Bosnian-Serb president Radovan Karadzic gave a sneak-peak of his Srebrenica defense during a hearing and a series of pre-trial briefs filed at the Hague Tribunal last month.

Speaking at a pre-trial hearing on July 23rd Karadzic said, "This is the last ever opportunity for us to clarify what happened in Bosnia, and particularly in Srebrenica. ... I assure you that we are talking about the differences that can be numbered in the thousands of victims [this] is matter of establishing the facts, and if we do that, I don't even care what the Trial Chamber's decision will be about me. I just want to find the truth." He said, "Everything in relation to Srebrenica that has been presented so far is erroneous ... everything is contentious and everything needs to be established fact by fact."

Karadzic did not dispute the fact that there were some executions. He said, "people's hands were tied, and based on that we can assume that those people were executed, but this is a generalization which cannot be used to establish the guilt of an entire people, not only one person." He said, "We have to establish the truth. When somebody died, whether they died in 1992, 1993, or 1995; whether they were killed in combat or whether they were killed as a result of executions."
