Karadzic sued Serbia for 'kidnapping' prior to arrest
Dwyer Arce at 12:00 AM ET

On August 5, 2009, war crimes suspect Radovan Karadzic sued the Serbian government for allegedly kidnapping him prior to announcing his arrest in 2008. The former Bosnian Serb leader claimed that Serbian authorities officially reported his arrest three days after he was actually detained, delaying his appearance before a judge. Karadzic's capture came 13 years after being indicted by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in 1995. He faces 11 charges, including genocide and murder, for war crimes allegedly committed during the 1992-1995 Bosnian war. His trial is anticipated to continue for several more years.
