Karadzic’s family may visit The Hague

Family members of war crimes suspect Radovan Karadzic are to have their passports returned so that they can visit the former Bosnian Serb leader who is being held at the UN detention centre in The Hague pending his trial at the Yugoslavia tribunal, reports news service ANP.

The announcement was made on Wednesday by the special envoy for Bosnia, Miroslav Lajcak, says ANP.
A request for the passports of Karadzic’s wife, daughter, son and son-in-law to be returned to them so that they could visit him in Belgrade was turned down by Lajcak because it was feared that they would try to help him after his arrest in the Serbian capital Belgrade last week.
Earlier Karadzic’s daughter told reporters that a visit to The Hague would be difficult because the family does not have enough money and her mother is too sick to make the trip, reports ANP.
