International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia prosecutor Serge Brammertz speaks about the transfer of Bosnian Serb war crimes suspect Radovan Karadzic to the court's detention centre near The Hague.
Bosnian Serb war crimes suspect Radovan Karadzic was transferred to the Dutch-based UN war crimes tribunal's detention centre near The Hague. Preliminary hearings, in which he will plead guilty or not, begin Thursday.
Bosnian Serb war crimes suspect Radovan Karadzic is on his way to the UN war crimes tribunal in The Hague, leaving Belgrade's special court building in a motorcade hours after clashes erupted between his supporters and riot police.
Police fired tear gas to break up scuffles with youths during a demonstration by hardline Serbian nationalists in support of war crimes suspect Radovan Karadzic. At least 25 police and 19 civilians were injured in the riots.
As Serbia's Radovan Karadzic faces charges for genocide, Bosnia's war crimes court sentenced seven Bosnian Serbs to prison terms ranging from 38 to 42 years on Tuesday for the mass killing of Bosnian Muslims in Srebrenica in July 1995.
Bosnian Serb wartime leader Radovan Karadzic's lawyer said he does not expect his client to be transfered to the ICC before Wednesday. Karadzic faces charges of war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide during the Bosnian war.
Genocide suspect Radovan Karadzic's lawyers posted a last-minute appeal against his transfer to the UN war crimes tribunal. Lack of information about the proceedings is "part of the defence strategy", said his lawyer.
