The UN war crimes court in The Hague has refused to reconsider the rejection of an appeal made by convicted war criminal Radovan Karadzic who was sentenced to life for genocide and other crimes committed in Bosnia and Herzegovina during the 1992-1995 war, the institution said on Wednesday.

The International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals (IRMCT) President Carmel Agius rejected Karadzic’s request to set up a council which would review his rejected appeal.

Karadzic was sentenced in March to life imprisonment for genocide committed in Srebrenica in 1995 and numerous crimes against humanity and violations of the laws and customs of war, persecution across BiH, terrorizing Sarajevo’s citizens and taking UNPROFOR hostage.

The verdict acquitted him of genocide in 1992.
