"Former leader Radovan Karadzic has begun his defence proceedings in the court at The Hague where he is on trial for genocide.............................
THE HAGUE, Netherlands – More..Former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic, charged with the worst genocide in Europe since the Holocaust, testified Monday that his people were simply defending themselves against Islamic fundamentalists who he claimed were seeking to take over Bosnia.
In his opening defense statement at the U.N. war crimes tribunal, Karadzic denied any intention to expel non-Serbs from their homes, and said the Serb objective was to protect their own lives and property during the violent 1990s breakup of the former Yugoslavia.
The Serb "cause is just and holy," Karadzic said as he began his two-day statement, relying only on sparse notes. "We have a good case. We have good evidence and proof."
