Former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic, whose war crimes verdict will be delivered in December, had a successful operation to have his gall bladder removed.
The UN-backed war crimes tribunal in The Hague announced on Friday that Karadzic had problems with his stomach last week and had an operation in the Netherlands to have his gall bladder removed on Thursday August 27.
“He stayed at the civilian hospital overnight and was transferred back to the Judicial Centre for Somatic Care since he experienced no complications after surgery,” the Hague Tribunal’s medical officer Paulus Falke said in a report to the judges.
Karadzic asked the trial chamber in his case last week to hold a status conference at the end of September in order to discuss his health condition, amongst other things.
“Karadzic has been ill since August 18, suffering pain, loss of balance, and exhaustion from a condition that has not yet been identified,” he wrote to the judges last week, referring to himself in the third person.
“He has also requested to undergo a complete battery of medical tests to determine the functioning of his various organs - tests which have not been conducted since he arrived at the Detention Unit seven years ago. Karadzic also had a recent periodic blood test to measure his blood sugar levels, which have been higher than normal,” he added.
Karadzic, the former president of Bosnia’s Serb-dominated entity Republika Srpska and supreme commander of its armed forces, is charged with genocide in Srebrenica and several other municipalities, the persecution of Bosniaks and Croats across the country, terrorising the population of Sarajevo and taking UN peacekeepers hostage.
His trial started in 2009, and the first instance verdict is expected in December.
