Karadzic refuses to plead to genocide, war crimes
Bosnian Serb wartime leader Radovan Karadzic refused to plead to genocide charges on Tuesday at the UN’s Yugoslav war crimes court, prompting the judges to enter an automatic not guilty plea on his behalf.
“I am not going to enter a plea at all,” Karadzic told Judge Iain Bonomy of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, in The Hague.
“This tribunal does not have the right to try me.”
Bonomy replied: “I shall enter pleas of not guilty on your behalf” to each of the 11 counts.—AFP.
