As expected, Radavan Karadzic did not appear today at the opening of his trial at the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia. Last week he requested a 10-month delay, claiming a need for additional time to prepare a defense to the 11 charges against him.
Michael Scharf (Case Western Reserve School of Law) has shared with us a link to a National Public Radio program that previews the trial. The program features Karadzic's lawyer (Peter Robinson), Mike Newton (who wrote "Enemy of the State" with Professor Scharf), and Michael Sharf. Click here.
