Karadzic Calls For Carolos Papoulias To Give Evidence on His Case

Former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic asked the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) on Tuesday to issue a subpoena compelling the Greek President Carolos Papoulias to give a one-hour interview to Karadzic’s advisor.
According to the former Bosnian Serbian leader, Carolos Papoulias, who had served as Foreign Affairs Minister from 1993 to 1996, would be able to provide the Tribunal with enough evidence proving that Karadzic had not ordered the bombing of Sarajevo’s Markale Market in 1994, which cost the lives of 67 people.
“Because of the religious and historical ties between Greece and the Serbs, President Papoulias was one of the few international interlocutors whom the Bosnian Serbs trusted and with whom they could speak confidentially and candidly,” Karadzic said.
Karadzic claims he has sent many letters to the Greek government asking for an interview from Papoulias but the latter had declined his request.
Karadzic was arrested in 2008 and is detained in the United Nations Detention Unit of Scheveningen, accused of war crimes committed against Bosnian Muslims and Bosnian Croats during the Siege of Sarajevo, as well as ordering the Srebrenica massacre.
