Former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic was sentenced to prison for war crimes and deprived of his religious rights.
Karadzic’s daughter Sonia Djovičević confirmed to the Republika Srpska media that after MICT Chairman Carmel Agius decided earlier this month that Karadzic would serve his sentence in Great Britain, her father He is currently serving his sentence in a prison near Southampton.
She did not name the prison, but said Karadzic was sent to southern England only to make it difficult for his family to visit.
She said that she only had a brief conversation with her father on the phone and “immediately realized that there would be a problem.”
“Regarding the physical condition he was brought in and his residence, this is unacceptable. If we add the fact that he was housed in a building full of carcinogenic asbestos, it is forbidden in the world, This is obvious. She said what conditions he will be in. “She is the position of Sonja Jovicevic, the Srna agency, and he is now a member of the RS Council.
The International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) sentenced Karadzic to life imprisonment in 2019, and the second-instance chamber increased his 40-year imprisonment in the first-instance proceedings.
He was convicted of the most serious war crimes, including the Srebrenica genocide and moral persecution of Bosnians and Croats, intimidation of Sarajevo and the hostage of UN peacekeepers.
After hiding for more than ten years, he was arrested in Serbia in 2008 and was immediately extradited to the International Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, where he remained in the court’s custody until this week.
After the government of the country expressed its willingness to serve him for the rest of his life in prison, he has now been transferred to the UK in accordance with the decision of Judge Agis.
Agius rejected Karadzic’s lawyer’s objection that his life would be threatened in the United Kingdom because a large number of Muslims were serving sentences there, so they might have revenge against him.
Jovicsevich now claims that the biggest problem in fact is that her father is “isolated in a different environment from his civilization, language and culture” and how he will practice religious beliefs and write professional and literary works in the UK .
