"Dr Karadzic I suppose?"

He b..... appealed

Then again, he would. The Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic was found guilty of indictments of genocide, extinction and crime against humanity at the UN International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia yesterday. He was convicted to 40 years of imprisonment.

To paraphrase from the Judgement Summary Karadzic was "at the apex of political, governmental, and military structures and able to use his power and influence" and was for one a "central figure in disseminating propaganda" of which his "rhetoric was used to engender fear and hatred of Bosnian Muslims and Bosnian Croats and had the effect of exacerbating ethnic divisions and tensions".

Karadzic was in short not the dirty hands. He encouraged, facilitated and authorized what took place as part of the "joint criminal enterprise".

Active verbs of criminal intent acted out. Riber Hansson drew the verdict within Karadzic's very person yesterday; the realization in vertical lines of being caught while he is all busy horizontal lines seeking escape. The conflicting lines never merging, exposing his inner emptiness from any reflection of personal responsibility.
