Serbia to hand Karadzic to war crimes tribunal
A Serbian judge decided Tuesday to hand over arrested former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic to the international war crimes tribunal in The Hague, news reports said.
Belgrade judge Milan Dilparic's ruling came after he questioned Karadzic on Monday night, the Tanjug state news agency reported.
Karadzic's lawyer, Svetozar Vujacic, said he would appeal, Tanjug said. He has three days to file an appeal, reported dpa.
Serbian authorities announced late Monday they had arrested Karadzic, 63, after 12 years in hiding. The UN war crimes tribunal has indicted him on charges including genocide and crimes against humanity for his role in Bosnia's 1992-95 war.
