Capturing a Serb Killer by tucsonmike on 22 July 2008 2:58am
 
Karadazic (sp) was captured. This differs from the arrest warrant for the Sudanese President who wont be captured. This guy was caught by fellow Serbs.
Don't count the chickens before they hatch! Wonder what Mr. P thinks, since he just traveled there.

Amazing, isn't it, the Serb government changes (this one is pro-EU & wants Serb entry) - war criminal is found within weeks!

Great step in the right direction. Hope more are caught - but like Mike, I hae my doubts about Bin Laden being captured right at this minute.

The GUARDIAN,23/07/08,reported(COMMENT)that Karadzic's arrest came just days after the formation of a pro-western government in Belgrade.Also, the EU had made the capture of Karadzic and his former military commander,Ratko Mladic,a condition of EU membership.He was caught on a local bus in a suburb of Belgrade,having assumed a new identity (Dragan Dabic) and in a disguise as an alternative healer/doctor,and he moved around the city without any bodyguards,such was his confidence of evading capture.
According to the Guardian,this shows without question that Karadzic must have received protection from the Serbian security services (who claimed to have been hunting him for much of the last decade);plus,his exposure could possibly have been a 'gift' from one departing security chief to his sucessor,in exchange for immunity from prosecution.However, the political cover for Karadzic's continued freedom would have been provided by the previous nationalist government of Vojislav Kostunica.
Thus, it will be interesting to see if anyone decides to 'shop' the outstanding war-criminal Mladic,and how long he remains at large.
