ICTY held Karadzic immunity deal invalid

On December 17, 2008, a panel of judges at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) ruled that there was no valid immunity deal between war crimes suspect Radovan Karadzic and US ambassador to the UN Richard Holbrooke and that even if such an agreement had existed, it would not be valid under international law. The panel ruled, however, that prosecutors must turn over to Karadzic any notes, agreements, or recordings related to the alleged immunity deal, in response to a motion by Karadzic. Karadzic had alleged that Holbrooke agreed in 1996 that Karadzic would not face war crimes charges if he removed himself from power.
