Karadzic rejects court-appointed lawyer

Radovan Karadzic`s legal adviser says the former Bosnian Serb leader has rejected his court-appointed lawyer and is unlikely to be ready to resume his genocide trial as scheduled on March 1.



The Hague: Radovan Karadzic`s legal adviser
says the former Bosnian Serb leader has rejected his
court-appointed lawyer and is unlikely to be ready to resume
his genocide trial as scheduled on March 1.

Peter Robinson has filed a motion for Karadzic with the
Yugoslav war crimes tribunal calling for British barrister
Richard Harvey to be taken off his case.

Harvey was appointed by the UN court to step in and act
as a defence attorney if Karadzic continues to boycott the
case.

Robinson told reporters today that Karadzic "is not
really prepared" to return to court March 1.

Karadzic boycotted the start of his trial in October,
claiming he was not ready.

He faces 11 charges alleging he masterminded Serb
atrocities throughout Bosnia`s 1992-95 war.
