LOS ANGELES, USA (August 12,2008) - U.S. - based psychiatric watchdog, Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) says the recent capture (7/21/2008) of former leader and creator of the genocidal Serbian creature in Bosnia "RS",Serbian war criminal Radovan Karadzic will bring to justice a psychiatrist whose genocide of thousands was reminiscent of Nazi psychiatric crime during World War II, and that few people are aware that the “ethnic cleansing” — ridding a geographical area of racially “inferior” people,carried out in Bosnia,during the 1992-1995 Serbian aggression against Bosnia and later in Kosovo, was based on the same psychiatric-inspired "racial hygiene programs" that led to the Nazi Holocaust.

In 1992, CCHR formally submitted to the World Psychiatric Association, the World Federation for Mental Health and the Mental Health Division of the World Health Organization information concerning the psychiatric atrocities committed in the former Yugoslavia.

CCHR presented the same information about psychiatry’s role in initiating and conducting the “ethnic cleansing” atrocities in Bosnia to the United Nations Commission on Human Rights.

On September 1, 1999, members of the Council of Europe signed a Resolution, “Human suffering and degradation following ethnic cleansing,” that recognized the two psychiatrists as the architects of the "ethnic cleansing" campaign in Bosnia, Croatia and Serbia.

The International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) indicted Serbian war criminal Karadzic in absentia in 1995 for genocide over the 43-month siege of the Bosnian capital Sarajevo that claimed 12,000 lives and orchestrating the 1995 mass murder of some 10,000 Bosnian civilians in the eastern Bosnian town of Srebrenica. Dr. Edward Klain, a psychiatrist, features in a CCHR documentary, Psychiatry: An Industry of Death, detailed how in Nazi Germany it was “technically very difficult” to exterminate six million Jews. Concentration camps and gas chambers need to be established. In Bosnia, hatred and crimes against inhumanity were incited through propaganda: “Serbs would massacre, for example, one hundred to two hundred people. Or rape one hundred women, or one hundred girls, so that they would be terrorized so that they flee. Then you get an ethnically pure land,” Klain said.

CCHR’s evidence showed that Serbian war criminal Radovan Karadzic had trained under former Social Democratic Party (SDP) founder, psychiatrist,Serbian war criminal Jovan Raskovic. Before his death in 1992, Raskovic told Belgrade television and Vjesnik newspaper that he and his party had “lit the fuse of Serbian nationalism” with Freudian principles about inferiority and superiority.

Serbian war criminal Jovan Raskovic was talking about his and Karadzic’s propagation that Croatians were “fixated on the castration complex,” a Freudian principle, while Bosnians were domineering. Serbians, they said, possessed “the qualities of authority” and were destined leaders, while Croatians and Bosnians were the lesser races that needed to be eliminated. The fascist Serbian psychiatrist pushed his Freudian-based theories on the races of Yugoslavia in his book Luda Zemja (A Mad Country) and as part of a media campaign in which he was hailed as the greatest psychiatrist and scientist of his era.

“I feel responsible because I made the preparations for this war, even if not the military preparations. If I hadn’t created this emotional strain in the Serbian people, nothing would have happened,” ,Serbian fascist psychiatrist Jovan Raskovic stated.

Other evidence presented to the Hague Tribunal and Council of Europe was that former Serbia's President,Serbian war criminal Slobodan Milosevic, had been a patient of Serbian fascist psychiatrist Radovan Karadzic’s for 25 years. Together, he and Karadzic established "the ethnic cleansing program" and allowed the mass torture, rape and extermination of the innocent,during the Serbian aggressions against Bosnia,Croatia and Kosovo in the 1990's.

CCHR said justice can be served now that the architect of the "ethnic cleansing" in Bosnia has been captured, unlike in Nazi Germany where dozens of psychiatrists responsible for sterilization and genocidal crimes escaped trial and returned to practice in Germany and other countries around the world.

Like Serbian war criminal Radovan Karadzic, Ernst Rudin was a psychiatrist who played a major role in setting the stage for the Holocaust. Rudin was president of the International Federation of Eugenic Organizations and world leader of the eugenics movement which sought to remove “inferior” individuals from society by segregation, sterilization, or death in order to create a “better” race. In 1933 Rudin was chosen by Hitler’s Reich Ministry to lead Germany’s racial purity program. Rudin would later publicly praise Hitler for making his “more than thirty-year-old dream a reality” by imposing “racial hygiene” upon the German people.

CCHR President, Jan Eastgate said, “Responsibility exists on all levels, and while the atrocities of 'ethnic cleansing' and genocide are usually what capture our attention, it is important to recognize the ideology that spawns them and to hold those responsible for this to account.”


SARAJEVO, Bosnia (August 12,2008) - The trial of Serbian war criminal Momir Savic has started today before the Section I for War Crimes of the Bosnian State Court. Serbian war criminal Momir Savić is charged with the criminal offence of Crimes against Humanity committed during the 1992-1995 Serbian aggression against Bosnia.

According to the charges in the Indictment, Serbian war criminal Momir Savić, as the member of an undetermined paramilitary formation at the time when the Užice Corps of the former "Yugoslav People's Army" (JNA) launched its operations against Bosnia, and later as a member of the genocidal paramilitary formations of the Serbians living in Bosnia ("VRS"), during the period April through September 1992, he carried out persecution, murders, imprisonment, rapes, torture and other inhumane acts directed against Bosnian civilians in the area of Višegrad municipality in the eastern Bosnia.

Among other things, it is stated in the Indictment that Serbian war criminal Momir Savić, on 29 April 1992, in a group together with several Serbian fascist aggressor's soldiers, in the Bosnian village of Meremišlje, took part in the torture of four Bosnian civilians, as well as in plundering and burning down of the houses of two Bosnian civilians.

Further, the Indictment reads that Serbian war criminal Momir Savić, on 23 May 1992, in a group with several other Serbian fascist aggressor's soldiers, in the settlement of Drinsko, took ten Bosnian civilians out of their houses. Afterwards, these Bosnian civilians were tortured and taken to the hill “Kik”, in the so-called “Pušni Do” forest, were they were murdered by the genocidal Serbian fascist aggressor.

Further, on 25 May 1995, it is stated in the Indictment,Serbian war criminal Momir Savić, together with other Serbian fascist aggressor's soldiers, participated in the torture of detained Bosnian civilians. On the same occasion, Serbian war criminal Momir Savić, when one Bosnian civilian tried to run away, shot at him from a firearmes and murdered him.

During the period from 7 June 1992 until the end of September 1992, as stated in the Indictment,one Bosnian woman was raped numerous times by Serbian war criminal Momir Savić.


SARAJEVO, Bosnia (August 12,2008) - The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Georgia has informed Bosnia that no Bosnian nationals suffered injuries or were killed in Ossetia conflict between Georgia and Russia,the Bosnian Foreign Affairs Ministry said.

The Bosnian Embassy in Turkey informed the Bosnian Ministry of Foreign Affairs that the Georgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs confirmed no Bosnia nationals were victims in conflicts in Georgia, stating that all further information will be communicated through diplomatic channels via Bosnian Embassy in Turkey which covers Georgia non-residentially.

Georgia's president, Mikheil Saakashvili, has vowed not to surrender as Russian troops press deeper into his country.He says the capital Tbilisi is being threatened, and the majority of Georgia's territory is occupied.

President Saakashvili, accuses Russia of premeditating the attack, which began several days ago in South Ossetia.

Russian forces have pushed further into Georgia, moving briefly into the western city of Senaki, to destroy a military base.

Georgia claimed Russian soldiers had also occupied Gori, a key city linking the western and eastern parts of the country, but officials now say Russian troops are stationed nearby.

The UN refugee agency says that 80 percent of the 50,000 population of Gori has fled.

Russian forces also entered Georgia's Black Sea port of Poti, in what Moscow described as a reconnaissance mission.

In an address to the nation, Georgia's President Mikheil Saakashvili said the majority of Georgia's territory is occupied.

The war between Georgia and South Ossetia, until recently labeled a “frozen conflict,” stretches back to the early 1990s, when South Ossetia and another separatist region, Abkhazia, gained de facto independence from Georgia after the collapse of the Soviet Union. The region settled into a tenuous peace monitored by Russian peacekeepers, but frictions with Georgia increased sharply in 2004, when Saakashvili was elected.

The trigger for the fresh escalation began last weekend, when South Ossetia accused Georgia of firing mortars into the enclave after six Georgian policemen were killed in the border area by a roadside bomb. As tensions grew, South Ossetia began sending women and children out of the enclave. The refugee crisis intensified Friday as relief groups said thousands of refugees, mostly women and children, were streaming across the border into the North Caucasus city of Vladikavkaz in Russia.

Russia has said the conflict has killed 1,500 people and the death toll is expected to rise.

Georgian troops began a military action against South Ossetia's forces last week in an attempt to re-establish control over the region. In response, the Russian aggressor moved into the region and attacked the Georgian forces.


SARAJEVO, Bosnia (August 12,2008) - Population census in Bosnia could be possible to conduct in 2011 if the political decision on that is adopted soon and if the intensified preparation work for implementation of this big statistics project is continued, said a representative of the of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) in Bosnia, Zeljka Mudrovcic.

She said that from the aspect of the experts in this area, population census could be done in 2011, at the same time as in other countries in the southeastern Europe, under condition that “the preparation work is continued from tomorrow”.

"But, if we wait for the decisions to be adopted and then to start working, then I am a bit skeptic that we’ll be able to do it until 2011", Mudrovcic said.

Taking into consideration that the population consensus is more political than demographic issue in Bosnia, Mudrovcic points out to the recommendations of the EU statisticians on the compulsory characteristics to be listed.

Reminding that EU countries do not list ethnicity, Mudrovcic recommends to the experts in Bosnia not to list ethnical characteristics of the population or the ethnicity should be reduced to the framework of the human rights.

The recommendations of the EU statisticians state that the data on the ethnicity is relevant in order to understand the cultural differences of the population, position of the ethnical group in society and most of all because of monitoring of the discriminatory and anti-discriminatory politics in country.

"It is not spoken about ethnicity here in this sense at all, though the policies of the human rights are discriminatory in the country", Mudrovcic warns, stating that in Bosnia ethno affiliation is often mixed with national, and that, during this, no other cultural characteristics are mentioned.

She points out that Bosnia, due to its progress towards the European integrations and development, has to have reliable records on the structure of population.
