12:33 am
but you would accept that the court has been set up with the authority of the un security council, and your husband accepted that under the dayton agreement, which he signed in 1995. why does he now say that the court is illegal? mrs markovic, why is that a lie? do you not also realise that he is regarded as evil by many, what he actually signed up to, many people around the world, which is in the dayton agreement, is that the parties agreed to cooperate fully who blame him for the trail of blood with all entities, including those authorised that led across the balkans? by the un security council, in investigating and prosecuting war crimes and other violations are you not aware of that? of international humanitarian law. people who have seen the pictures of the forced deportations, of the mass murders and the rapes.
12:34 am
these people are not going to believe what you say. do you believe he will come home i am puzzled by your answers. from the hague one day? why not? i understood that you wished to do this interview and you wished to reply to the questions that we, in the name of the bbc, are putting towards you, am i not right in that understanding?
12:35 am
thank you very much indeed for being with us on the programme. can we go back to the time in march no, i'm asking questions that when your husband was arrested — how worried were you for his safety are of interest to the public. when he was arrested?
12:36 am
hello there, good morning. as expected, tuesday was a cloudy day for many of us. rain and drizzle around as well. and this was the scene, actually, he had a gun with him at the time. in the north—west of england where it was quite a bit cooler were you afraid that he would use it on himself? thanks to that rain and drizzle and low cloud. but we had a taste of things and he's quoted as saying things like, to come in cornwall. "you will think differently the sun was out and it was a good of me after i'm gone." there was no danger that deal warmer as well. and we're going to find more he was going to commit suicide? sunshine more widely as we into the easter weekend. and as a result it will be turning warmer everywhere. now, still some cloud on the scene. this cloud is heading towards iberia to bring some how much did you influence cooler, wetter weather. your husband politically? this cloud brought the rain and drizzle earlier on. that it is tending to peter out all the while.
12:37 am
it's a little bit damp across western scotland. further south, clearing skies means some mist and fog forming in wales, the midlands, and parts of southern england. that will take a little dusan mitevic said that while to clear away in the morning. you were the one with ambition, the drizzle won't last long you inspired him, he only wanted in western scotland. to be great in your eyes — the cloud breaks, the sunshine develops more widely. is that true? but we could bubble up a bit of cloud from east anglia towards the pennines and maybe squeeze out an isolated late shower. it's not true at all? on the whole, it's a dry and a warm afternoon, with temperatures getting up to 19 or 20 and the south—east of england. the only downside with this warmth and sunshine — no, but these are friends. high pollen levels across england and wales in particular. but as we head into the evening and overnight, we've got to watch general stefan markovic, out towards the east to see some he said that you write the speeches and that your husband mist and low cloud coming in off memorises and repeats them. is that true or not? the north sea. that will push its way further inland across northern areas. so a bit misty and murky in the hills and chilly around some rural areas. those are the temperatures in towns and cities. it will, however, get warmer as we head towards easter. let me ask you about a quote really warming up, actually, across central europe. that was attributed to you and this is where our air
12:38 am
is going to be coming from, hence those rising temperatures on that south—easterly breeze. in the magazine globus, there will be some mist and cloud around to begin with on thursday. that cloud tending to break up. sunshine developing quite widely. saying that you were angry south—easterly breezes. with your husband at the elections — still a little bit cooler around he should have asked some of those north sea coasts, for guarantees of safety. slobodan didn't ask for anything, it seems. eastern scotland, northeast england. did you say that? but otherwise temperatures were you angry with him are continuing to rise, that he didn't ask for guarantees 20 or 21 is quite likely on thursday. after the election? friday, hardly a cloud in the sky. this is a quote in globus magazine attributed to you. a beautiful day, good friday. we'll see lots of sunshine. this light south to south—easterly breeze putting that warmth northwards. so 21 or 22 through the central belt of scotland. 22 or 23 from london through the midlands to the north—west of england. this is a flavour of what's to come so, you don't recognise any of these statements at all? over the easter weekend. the peak of the heat likely to be on saturday. northern areas terminal cloudy. maybe seeing some rain, particularly on sunday. but the southeast still dry with some sunshine. tell me, mrs markovic, was your husband under the impression that he had made a deal with richard holbrooke,
12:39 am
he would not be prosecuted by the international tribunal?
12:40 am
and he never shared his impressions of any of these statesmen with you? not even when he met clinton, at the signing of the dayton agreement? did he always believe that it was possible to make a deal with western countries, and avoid the bombing of yugoslavia?
12:41 am
not his policy of having a greater serbia at any cost, which is what the west says about him? that is how his policy was seen in the west, wasn't it? welcome to newsday on the bbc.
12:42 am
i'm kasia madera, in london. the headlines: president macron promises to rebuild notre—dame but he started off by supporting within five years, as it's revealed the cathedral radovan karadzic and ratko mladic, didn't he? was just half an hour away he supported it from being completely destroyed. and he helped them with funds. he's admitted to that. ecuador‘s president tells the bbc the shocking details that led to him ending julian assange‘s asylum. i'm rico hizon, in singapore. also in the programme: the stage is set for indonesia's elections — as 200 million people begin so, why did he fall out heading to the polls. with karadzic and mladic? live from our studios in singapore why did he stop supporting them? and london, this is bbc world news — it's newsday. i am outside a polling booth in jakarta mrs markovic, what do you say to those people who don't accept your truth? who look at the trail of blood across the balkans over the last few years,
12:43 am
look at the mass murder, the forced deportations, the rape, the torture and don't believe you — what do you say to those people who don't believe you? the west is responsible for all the bodies, mrs markovic — no, is the west responsible? mrs markovic, don't you accept any responsibility?
12:44 am
so, the west is responsible for the mass graves, the west is responsible for the places of internment and torture, the west is responsible for the rape, the west is responsible for the forced deportations of tens of thousands of people across the balkans? people are not going to believe you, mrs markovic. people are not going to believe you. they've seen the pictures. they've seen the forced deportations of people for the first time since the second world war. didn't those pictures touch you, as a human being? did they touch you?
12:45 am
serbian investigators themselves are talking about the discovery of more than a thousand bodies shipped to serbia in refrigerated trucks from kosovo. these are not bodies that go back a long way. these are fresh bodies, victims of the war in kosovo, whose existence was meant
12:46 am
to be covered up. these are being investigated now, by serb investigators. so why are mass graves turning up in batajnica, a suburb of belgrade, of petrovo selo in eastern serbia? if this is all manufactured, why are these graves turning up here now?
12:47 am
