The International Criminal Tribunal for former Yugoslavia (ICTY) announced on Monday that Radovan Karadzic's trial will be suspended for two months to give the wartime Bosnian Serb leader time to prepare his defense for 1992 genocide charges.
Previously, the trial chamber decided to exclude those charges from Karadzic’s indictment, but in July this year the Appellate Chamber revoked this decision.
Karadzic, after the appellate decision, requested an extra four to six months for preparation, but was granted only two to come up with a defense on the charges of genocide in 1992 in eight municipalities of Bosnia -- Bratunac, Foci, Kljuc, Prijedor, Sanski Most, Vlasenica and Zvornik.
Radovan Karadzic was arrested on July 21, 2008 in Belgrade. His trial at the ICTY commenced on October 26, 2009.
Alongside genocide charges for the eight municipalities, he is indicted for genocide committed in July 1995 in Srebrenica, the expulsion of Muslims and Croats across Bosnia from 1992 to 1995, crimes committed in Sarajevo during the siege of the city, and for taking international peacekeepers as hostages in 1995.
The ICTY is currently on summer break, but the trial will continue on August 19 when Ratko Mladic, Bosnian Serb wartime military leader, and Goran Hadzic, Croatian Serb political leader, will be back to the courtroom.
