Radovan Karadzic was set to appear in the Yugoslav war crimes tribunal's courtroom on Tuesday, for the first time since his trial began last week on charges of ordering Serb atrocities throughout the Bosnian war. The former Bosnian Serb leader boycotted the trial's first three days, saying he had not had enough time to prepare his defense even though he was indicted in 1995. Presiding Judge O-Gon Kwon scheduled a hearing Tuesday afternoon to discuss how to proceed with the trial if Karadzic continues his boycott. Karadzic is defending himself but the three-judge panel is considering imposing a defense attorney on him. In a letter to judges released by the UN court on Monday, Karadzic said he would attend the hearing to help find a way out of the stalemate.
