No: 67, 20 March 2019, Press Release Regarding The Sentencing Of Former President And Supreme Commander Of Armed Forces Of Bosnia-herzegovina’s Republika Srpska Entity, Radovan Karadzic To Life Imprisonment

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 20.03.2019

International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) had ruled that former President and Supreme Commander of Armed Forces of Bosnia-Herzegovina’s Republika Srpska entity Radovan Karadzic commited genocide and crimes against humanity and that the Serbian forces had violated laws and international customs of war during the armed conflict in Bosnia-Herzegovina between 1992-1995. While ICTY had sentenced Karadzic to 40 years in prison, Karadzic had appealed against the said ruling.

Radovan Karadzic is sentenced to life imprisonment in the final judgement declared today by the International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals which carries out the proceedings left from the ICTY.

While the said sentence does not alleviate the agony of our massacred Bosnian brothers, it is a right decision for the manifestation of justice.
