Radovan Karadzic ceased his boycott of the ICTY Court and resumed trial in the Hague, arguing that the Bosnian Serbs were only acting in defense according to the BBC. Karadzic said that a small group of Muslims, then and now, want all the power, and that the Bosnian Serbs were acting in defense. He claimed his innocence of all eleven charges. In his translated arguments, Karadzic stated "I will defend that nation of ours and their cause that is just and holy." His defense strategy is to attempt to prove that the Bosnians Serbs were only acting in response to the "aggression" of the Bosnian Muslims. Karadzic claimed that the Seige of Sarajevo was nothing more than a trick constructed by enemies to the Bosnian Serbs, and that the Serbs had nothing do with it.
