WMA Resolution Concerning Dr Radovan Karadzic


Adopted by the 48th General Assembly Somerset West, Republic of South Africa, October 1996 and
rescinded and archived at the WMA General Assembly, Vancouver, Canada 2010

WHEREAS:

Dr. Radovan Karadzic is accused publicly of being responsible for many war crimes in the former Yugoslavia; and he has refused until now to appear before the International Criminal Tribunal for War Crimes in the former Yugoslavia situated at The Hague in the Netherlands; and, therefore, as a physician he is bringing our profession into disrepute;

BE IT RESOLVED THAT:

the World Medical Association denounces Dr. Radovan Karadzic for not surrendering himself to the International Criminal Tribunal for War Crimes in the former Yugoslavia, and demands that he does so forthwith.
