Dragan Dabic aka Radovan Karadzic

Serbian war criminal Radovan Karadzic has been charged by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) with:
  • Five counts of crimes against humanity (Article 5 of the Statute – extermination, murder, persecutions on political, racial and religious grounds, persecutions, inhumane acts (forcible transfer));
  • Three counts of violations of the laws of war (Article 3 of the Statute – murder, unlawfully inflicting terror upon civilians, taking hostages);
  • One count of grave breaches of the Geneva Conventions (Article 2 of the Statute – willful killing).
  • Unlawful transfer of civilians because of religious or national identity.
His impressive beard and disguise as a naturopath kept him out of the hands of the International Court of The Hague for years.
