Radovan Karadzic receives award from party
Text size Aa Aa

Former Bosnian Serb leader, Radovan Karadzic, has received an award from the political party he founded 20 years ago.

A special ceremony was organised by the Serb Democratic Party, just one day before commemoration of the Srebenica massacre ten years ago.

Picking up the award in her husband’s absence was his wife, Liljana Zelen.

Karadzic is facing genocide charges at the Hague relating to the killing of 8,000 Muslim men and boys at Srebenica.

The SDS Party was created by Karadzic in 1990. It is hoping to regain power when Bosnia holds parliamentary elections in October.
