The Courage of Raffi Gregorian
Raffi Gregorian is the current Deputy High Representatives in Bosnia. An experience American diplomat, he has been the singular diving force of international pressure against Karadzic so far this year.
Here is an excerpt of a Dnevni Avaz interview with Mr. Gregorian about Karadzic:
"I am glad that action has been taken – both by the international and the domestic structures – against those accused of war crimes and those helping them. This action is the result of talks that we have had with the authorities in Bosnia-Herzegovina. They are now beginning to use the legal mechanisms that they have at their disposal. This will continue and be intensified. And that action will not stop until those accused of war crimes are in The Hague. Moreover, the OHR and I will make sure that this happens. The pressure will only grow.
"We know that Karadzic is helping his family financially. I cannot go into detail, but we know this for certain. I can say that they got the money during the course of last year. We believe that Karadzic is in the region. The Chief Prosecutor thinks that he is not in Bosnia-Herzegovina, but his family is the center of the support network, and that is why they are on the list. They have contact with him, they get money from him, they help him and perhaps meet with him. A few years ago, Karadzic's wife urged him to give himself up; his son was arrested; they promised that they would help. But they were lying.
"So the pressure for Karadzic to face the scales of justice will not cease until either that happens or until he is pronounced dead."
