In a letter to the officials of the United Nations (UN), the International Residual Mechanism of the Hague Tribunal and the United Kingdom (UK), the Association of Victims and Witnesses of Genocide and the Movement “Mothers of the Srebrenica and Zepa Enclaves” plead not to fall for provocations from Serbia, according to which Radovan Karadzic is allegedly staying in poor conditions in a British prison.
The victims are deeply convinced that Radovan Karadzic in the UK enjoys the highest permitted level of law as a convicted international criminal, according to the laws in the UK, these associations state in a letter sent to officials of the UN, the International Residual Mechanism of the Hague Tribunal and the Great Britain.
”Radovan Karadzic, an international war criminal, does not give up his attempts to avoid serving life imprisonment for the committed genocide and four criminal enterprises in which he was one of the main planners. The Republic of Serbia, with the help of the Russian Federation, engaged over 120 so-called Serbian intellectuals, mainly persons who participated in, led and supported Radovan Karadzic, Slobodan Milosevic, Jovica Stanisic, Frenki Simatovic, Ratko Mladic and other criminals, to write a letter criticizing the government of the UK, the Mechanism for International Criminal Tribunals (MICT) and the alleged bad conditions in the British prison where Radovan Karadzic is staying. Among the “intellectuals” there are international war criminals, their facilitators, and people who do not recognize the legacy of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia – ICTY/MICT from The Hague. For a long time, the “ghosts of the past” have awakened in Serbia, who do not choose the means to protect war criminals, deny crimes and even glorify crime and criminals, and this letter confirms that. Please do not fall for the provocations from Serbia and we, the victims, are deeply convinced that Radovan Karadzic enjoys the highest legal status in the UK, as a convicted international criminal according to the laws in the UK,” it was said in the quote from the letter.
The association requests that, due to lies and disavowal of the international public, entry into the countries of the European Union (EU) be prohibited for all those who tried to deceive and mock international law with their signatures.
Victims of genocide and other crimes support the work of the International Residual Mechanism and the UK’s commitment to cooperate and provide assistance to it.
