HRW welcomes Karadzic arrest, but Mladic remains at large

Human Rights Watch (HRW) publicou antonte unha nota de prensa sobre a detención en Serbia do ex-presidente da “República Serbia de Bosnia”, Radovan Karadzic, reclamado polo Tribunal Penal Internacional para a antiga Iugoslavia (ICTY) como presunto responsable do xenocidio de Srebrenica e outros crimes contra a Humanidade.

Radovan Karadzic, agora detido, e Ratko Mladic, aínda fuxido, son os presuntos criminais máis buscados polo ICTY, dados os postos que ocupaban na cadea de mando, pero non son os únicos.

A nota de prensa de HRW leva por título “Bosnia: Karadzic Arrest a Blow Against Impunity. EU Should Push Now for Detention of Mladic”. Copio un extracto do seu contido:

The arrest of Radovan Karadzic, the former president of Republika Srpska, marks a major blow against impunity for the egregious crimes committed in the Balkans, HRW said today. Karadzic is charged with genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes, including the massacre of up to 8,000 Bosnian men and boys after the fall of Srebrenica in July 1995.

Despite the gravity of the alleged crimes, Karadzic was at liberty for 13 years after his initial indictment. […]

Ratko Mladic, the former Bosnian Serb army commander, remains at large. Mladic has also been indicted twice, along with Karadzic, on charges of genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes. He is currently in hiding. The previous Serbian government had claimed that it had no information about Mladic’s presence in Serbia; however, ICTY prosecutors and independent Serbian media have alleged that Mladic was in Serbia under the protection of elements of the army outside the effective control of the civilian authorities. In addition, authorities in Belgrade acknowledged that Mladic received a Yugoslav army pension until 2002, and they have detained several people accused of helping hide Mladic.

Karadzic and Mladic were first indicted by the ICTY in July 1995 on charges of genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes alleged to have occurred in several cities across Bosnia. In a separate indictment in November 1995, the ICTY charged both Karadzic and Mladic with genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes based on the mass execution of civilians after the fall of Srebrenica.

Varios medios, entre eles o diario madrileño El Mundo, informan hoxe da protección que as autoridades de Serbia deron a Karadzic:

“Serbia admite ahora que su servicio secreto protegió a Karadzic durante años”

El presunto criminal de guerra serbio Radovan Karadzic, que fue detenido el lunes, fue protegido durante varios años por el servicio secreto serbio, aseguró el ministro del Interior serbio, Ivica Dacic, según informan los medios de prensa en Belgrado.

“El servicio secreto lo protegía y el servicio secreto lo ha entregado ahora”, afirmó Dacic, quien sostuvo que la policía serbia no tuvo nada que ver con la detención de Karadzic.

Como líder del Partido Socialista Serbio (SPS), Dacic había rechazado una eventual detención de Karadzic y sólo estaba dispuesto a aceptar la entrega voluntaria del ciudadano serbio más buscado. […]
