Serbian war crimes prosecutor says Karadzic sentence just Izvor: N1

A retired Serbian war crimes prosecutor told the Belgrade-based FoNet news agency that the life sentence handed down to Bosnian Serb war-time leader Radovan Karadzic is more just than the initial sentence of 40 years.

Prosecutor Vladimir Vukcevic said the life sentence gives the families of the victims satisfaction because it is just. “As a professional I do not expect the sentence to be bigger or smaller, but just,” he said.  

Vukcevic recalled that perpetrators of lesser crimes were given life sentences, adding that Karadzic role as the first Republika Srpska president carried greater responsibility.  

Vukcevic said the court’s job is not to contribute to reconciliation in the region. According to him, the court can’t effect reconciliation which he said is up to the executive authorities but can only rule if someone is guilty or not.
