Karadzic demands compensation for “kidnapping”

THE HAGUE, Netherlands

Former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic says he was kidnapped by Serb authorities and held without any communication for several days after he was detained in July 2008, according to a document released Wednesday (August 5th) by the UN war crimes tribunal. Karadzic, 64, insists on receiving financial compensation if the tribunal acquits him or a reduced sentence if convicted, given the conditions of his arrest. He goes on trial next month for war crimes, genocide and crimes against humanity for his actions during the 1992-1995 Bosnian conflict.
