The chamber recognised that he would continue to represent himself, with the appointed counsel only taking over as assigned counsel if he continued to obstruct the proceedings.

Few people expected Radovan Karadzic to show up to the start of his trial on Monday. He had already announced his intention not to attend a few days earlier in a written submission to the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY). The former President of the Serb Republic in Bosnia stayed away to protest the fact that he hadn't been given more time to prepare his case. The pre-trial and appeals chambers rejected his request for a 10-month postponement earlier this month.

“Not ‘if’ I were released, but ‘when’ I will be released! Radovan Karadzic, told Radio Netherlands Worldwide that he is confident in his case in The Hague. Last week, the former Bosnian Serb leader was given extra time to go through 32,000 pages of new material in his war crimes trial.

Proceedings at the International Criminal Tribunal for former Yugoslavia (ICTY) will be suspended for seven weeks, from 21 March. Meanwhile, Karadzic answered some of the questions asked by the Radio Netherlands Worldwide International Justice Desk.

"By planned and well-thought-out combat operations, create an unbearable situation of total insecurity with no hope of further survival or life for the inhabitants of Srebrenica and Zepa." Such were the instructions of President Radovan Karadzic in March 1995. The "purifying" intention of the directive, later known by the code name of Krivaja 95, is in no doubt. Yet it leaves open the issue of the intention to commit genocide. Legal experts at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia have been scrutinizing the gap between genocide and ethnic cleansing in an attempt to legally establish the existence of genocide in Srebrenica.
