UN court gives Karadzic more money for his defense

UN court gives Karadzic more money for his defense

The president of the U.N.'s Yugoslav war crimes tribunal has awarded Radovan Karadzic extra money to fund his defense against charges of masterminding Serb atrocities throughout the Bosnian war.
Patrick Robinson says an earlier decision by the court's registrar to pay for 4,500 hours of work by the former Bosnian Serb leader's team of legal advisers failed to take into account the size of the case.
Robinson wrote Friday that Karadzic should be granted 7,500 hours of legal work _ worth around (EURO)165,000 ($236,560).
Karadzic's trial on 11 charges, including two of genocide, started in October, but he boycotted the hearings, saying he had not been given enough time to prepare.
The trial is scheduled to resume March 1.
