THE HAGUE, The Netherlands (October 28,2008) - A new proposed indictment against former leader and creator of the genocidal Serbian creature in Bosnia "RS" and one of the masterminds of the genocide against the Bosnian people,Serbian war criminal Radovan Karadzic has been discussed at a status conference held at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY).

Prosecutor Alan Tiger informed the Court that Serbian war criminal Radovan Karadzic has received most of the indictment-related documents, and the rest will be given to him by the end of this week. He also said that there is no document that will be unknown to the indictee.

The Hague prosecution submitted the new indictment against Serbian war criminal on September 23, but he received the translation only on October 27.

At a pre-trial hearing, Judge Iain Bonomy rejected Serbian war criminal's complaint that the process was going too fast.

The judge said the proceedings had gone virtually nowhere since the last hearing in July.

Serbian war criminal Radovan Karadzic has chosen to defend himself, but complained he had not yet assembled a legal team to advise him.

"I don't have the necessary resources, I don't have a defence team," Serbian fascist said.

"With the speed with which matters are proceeding... I am afraid that I will be in an even less equal position and I'd like you to be aware of that."

However, Judge Bonomy rejected his argument, saying it was because of his decision to run his own defence that he was not able to keep up.

"It's your own choice, as you know very well, that you should represent yourself and I'm afraid that carries particular problems which you have been told about repeatedly," the judge said.

Correspondents say the judge is anxious not to let Serbian war criminal Radovan Karadzic emulate the late Serbian fascist leader Slobodan Milosevic, who dragged his genocide trial out for four years before he died of a heart attack in 2006.

Serbian war criminal Radovan Karadzic was arrested in July this year after 13 years of hiding from justice. The Prosecution at The Hague considers him guilty of genocide, expulsions, deportation, and inhumane acts against Bosnian civilians committed during the 1992-1995 Serbian aggression against Bosnia.
