Professor Sterio Publishes Blog Post on the ICTY Karadzic Verdict

Professor and Associate Dean Milena Sterio published a blog post entitled “Radovan Karadzic Convicted by ICTY Trial Chamber” on Intlawgrrls.  Professor Sterio’s blog post, available here, discusses the Karadzic verdict, delivered on March 24, 2016.  Radovan Karadzic was the Bosnian Serb leader during the conflict in the former Yugoslavia in the 1990s.  He spent several years in hiding, after the end of the conflict, and was ultimately found and arrested in Belgrade in 2008.  He was then transferred to the International Criminal Tribunal for Yugoslavia at the Hague, where he faced trial on multiple charges of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes.  Karadzic was convicted of most counts and sentenced to 40 years in prison, which, in light of his current age (70), most likely amounts to life imprisonment.
