Yang Maksimyuk: "Andrew, please tell us why arrest Karadzic place only at the moment, 13 years after the International Court of Justice has put forward his charges of genocide? "
Andrei Shary: "I think there are several events coincided. On the one hand, of course, that masterfully worked security of Serbia, or rather, a special unit that was created specifically in order to grab Radovan Karadzic. It operates under the tutelage of the District Court for a special investigation war crimes prosecutor and submits this court. clear that they had already long enough to know where Karadzic is. main question — is a political decision, the political will of the Serbian administration, which apparently felt myself just then quite hard to afford for themselves previously such a risky move. In other words, if you remember sutuatsyyu 12-13-year-old, while in Serbia Slobodan Milosevic had neither the political will nor the political capacity to arrest Karadzic. Now, when in power more or less democratic government, democratic president, in Serbia there is a guarantee of cooperation with the European Union and there is a realization that the government will keep the situation under control even after the arrest of Karadzic. "
Yang Maksimyuk"What, in your opinion, will Karadzic at the moment? His being taken to The Hague and will be judged?"
Andrei Shary"Formally, there are two abilities, as there is an agreement between Serbia and the Hague court that they decide together who will lead this court. Karadzic But most likely in the near Time will transferred to The Hague based on an issued in 2000, the charges against him and the address on the basis of a special order of the Hague court.
The fact that apparently, judging by Karadzic of Serbia — it quite scary on the basis of beliefs of the political situation. In addition, the Hague trubunal already spent a lot of processes which affect the Serb atrocities in Sarajevo and Srebrenitsy — and specifically these issues constitute the main body charged Karadzic, and there gathered a very large evidence base. I have no doubt that if the process will take place in The Hague, it is sufficiently high-spirited if Karadzic himself it will not delay. "
Yang Maksimyuk "Whether to expect any protests or riots in Serbia in connection with the arrest of Karadzic? "
Andrei Shary"I just spoke with a fairly well informed journalists in Belgrade, and neither one of them does not expect that there may be some harsh mess. Last NIGHT MODE gathered about 100 people — are supporters of youth, such Clair-fascist organizations but byalgradkaya police was ready for it, and even without the introduction rastsyarushyli force. demonstration was authorized. I think there will be quite a heated debate in parliament and perhaps constructive party supporters or very nationalist parties declare some company national disobedience. But I do not think that at this point in the Serbian nationalists have the potential to organize at least some severe company. In addition, we must not forget also that: Karadzic — a citizen of Bosnia, not Serbia. Because technically it comes to a citizen of another country. This still one of the reasons why it will not be judged in Serbia. "
