Radovan Karadzic gives exclusive interview to RT
RT: Many have claimed that the tribunal is massively one-sided. In your opinion, what is the real aim of the proceedings?
RK: I am trying my best to defend myself under very difficult conditions. We will have to wait and see what kind of trial I receive before knowing the real aim of the proceedings.
RT: Richard Holbrooke continues to deny a deal you say you made with him back in 1996 guaranteeing your immunity. You have complied with it by disappearing from public life – why do you think the agreement was broken?
RK: Either Holbrooke never intended to honor the agreement, only to obtain a short-term victory by getting me out of office, or he lacked the clout to see that the agreement was honored in the face of the clamor for my prosecution by other actors. There are no any doubts for the people involved that the agreement existed, and it was concluded that the only missing step had been the Security Council resolution on the subject, which still may have happened. Otherwise, no peace would be possible to reach in the future without a prior resolution.
RT: What purports to be the text of the agreement was published in the newspaper "Glas Jasnostil”. It says the US could unilaterally pull out of it. Do you think that's what happened? Why would they do that?
RK: The alleged written agreement with the signatures of Holbrooke and myself was a false document. And not by anyone close to me, since my signature was forged too.
RT: Serbian authorities gave you up to your captors. Do you feel betrayed by the country you fought for?
RK: I don't feel betrayed by Serbia because they never promised me they would not arrest me. I don't know what things they had to deal with because I am not in their shoes. If there was a valid reason d'etat, and if it would help Serbia and Republika Srpska for me to be arrested, I would not object. I am afraid they did not get back anything for me, so it seems to me that I was squandered out from the stand point of the interest of Serbia. Anyway, I do not object to facing my destiny – all of this is a fight for my people.
