Radovan Karadzic appeals against convictions at Hague court

Former Bosnian Serb President Radovan Karadzic has filed an appeal against his conviction on genocide and other charges, arguing that he did not receive a fair trial and that United Nations judges made a string of mistakes when reaching the guilty verdicts.

Karadzic filed an appeal listing 50 alleged errors that amount to a miscarriage of justice.

The appeal argues that the errors, "violated the presumption of innocence, created an unmanageable trial, and made a fair trial impossible."

The International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia sentenced 71-year-old Karadzic to 40 years imprisonment for masterminding atrocities by Bosnian Serb forces throughout the 1992-95 war that killed some 100,000 people.
