Ed Vulliamy writes in today’s Graun (G2 section) about a meeting with the mass murderer and a visit to a concentration camp at Omarska, which ended with the journalists being bundled out of the camp:
“We had seen very little, and only with time and the trials at the Hague of lower-ranking Bosnian Serbs, did it become clear what Karadzic did not want us to see. Scenes of routine sadism such as that described by survivor Halid Mujkanovic, concerning a prisoner forced to perform fellatio on a fellow inmate, then ordered to bite off his testicles while a live pigeon was stuffed down his throat to stifle his screams as he died. The victim was Fikret Harambasic and the man was forced to castrate him in order to save the lives of his roomates, threatened with execution if there were no ‘volunteers’. The crowd of guards who oversaw this entertainment ‘looked as though they were attending a sports match, supporting a team’, said Mujkanovic.” Read the rest here.
Meanwhile, as predicted, that loathsome apologist for tyrants and mass murder, Neil Clark, uses weasel words to minimise the crimes of Karadzic, glorify his (Clark’s) hero Milosevic, and suggest that no real justice is possible at The Hague. The people who have commented under Clark’s piece are, if anything, even more disgusting than the author himself. Have a look, if you’ve a strong stomach.
