Karadzic faced charges on 11 counts of crimes against humanity, breaching the laws or customs of war and genocide for his role in the 1992-1995 Bosnian War.
Radovan Karadzic became the most high-profile defendant after the death of former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic in 2006 before his trial concluded.

Karadzic was acquitted of a first account of genocide in connection with the municipalities, but judges have yet to rule on the 1995 massacre in Srebrenica.

Former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic bears individual criminal responsibility for the three-year siege of Sarajevo, in which thousands of people were killed, a United Nations court said on Thursday.
Karadzic is claimed to have overseen the massacre of an estimated 8,000 Muslim men and boys after Serbian forces overran the Bosnian town of Srebrenica in the waning days of the war in July 1995.
