FRONTLINE/World iWitness posted two video reports this week about the capture and arrest of Serbian war criminal Radovan Karadzic this past Monday. iWitness talks to reporter Saska Rankovic, who worked as an independent journalist under Milosevic and has been covering a divided Serbia for the last few years.
“I think it is so pitiful, for the man who was so powerful during that war period … after all he was the master of life and death … It is so pitiful,” Rankovic says of Karadzic’s capture and the way he’s been living in disguise for more than a decade.
iWitness also checks in with Hasan Nuhanovic, who lost his mother, father, and brother in the massacre at Srebrenica. Nuhanovic was featured in a FRONTLINE/World documentary in 2006 about the hunt for Karadzic and his top general, Ratko Mladic: “The Men Who Got Away.”
“There is no place for euphoria,” Nuhanovic says of Karadzic’s arrest this week. “It came 13 years late. He’s still in custody in Belgrade. We’ll see when he is going and how he is going to be transferred to The Hague international tribunal. We’ll see what happens when he gets there … It’s one important step forward, of course. But many problems remain unresolved.”
