THE HAGUE, The Netherlands (November 19,2008) - The International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) President Patrick Robinson has decided that a new judge should replace him in the case 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.
According to a Tribunal statement, Robinson will be replaced by German Judge Christoph Flieger.
It comes after he was appointed Tribunal president on Monday, a position that, under Tribunal regulations, precludes him from acting as a trial judge.
The other members of the Trial Chamber in the Serbian war criminal Radovan Karadžić case include Britain’s Iain Bonomy and French Judge Michelle Picard.
Judge Bonomy is currently presiding over the pre-trial proceedings against Serbian war criminal, as the Trial Chamber’s deliberates the most important issues in the case.
The Trial Chamber is soon due to decide whether to accept the amended indictment against Serbian fascist, proposed by the prosecution in late September.
Under the existing indictment, Serbian war criminla Radovan Karadzic is charged with genocide, deportation, persecution, inhumane acts, murders and other crimes committed against Bosnian civilians during the 1992-1995 Serbian aggression against Bosnia.
