Bosnian Serb, War Crimes Fugitive Radovan Karadzic Was Caught

Written By: cd - Jul• 21•08

Finally finally….

I was searching the net, preparing for my trips to Berlin when Honza skyped me “Karadzic was arrested. I’m watching it on CNN.” “No, i can’t be. I’ve just surfed that site.” I objected and refreshing CNN home page, still nothing. I googled around but came up empty. Then there it was, the familiar breaking news yellow banner with the large text “War crimes fugitive Radovan Karadzic has been arrested, AP reports quoting the office of Serbian president.” 

This is too good to be true. It’s… politics. Croatia and Serbia caught their infamous fugitives, well, in a very convenient time, too convenient I must say.

“Are you happy for Bosnians?” Honza asked me. “I think they will celebrate.”

I think they do too, at least the Bosniaks and Bosnian-Croats.  I hope Karadzic’s capture, thought done by Serbia special force, will help Bosnia’s EU case.
