Karadžić and his family lived in the Sipad villa from April 1992. In mid-1994, the Karadžić family moved to a house in Krivace, a part of Pale. At the beginning of the war, Karadžić’s office was located in the Kikinda building and in late 1992 it was moved to the Mali Dom facility, a part of the Hotel Panorama compound. In 1994, Karadžić’s office moved to the Famos building. Karadžić was born on 19th June 1945. He went into hiding after the war and was eventually arrested in Belgrade on the 21st July 2008. On 24th March 2016 he was found guilty of genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity, and sentenced to 40 years imprisonment. He was found guilty of genocide for the Srebrenica massacre, which aimed to kill "every able-bodied male" in the town and systematically exterminate the Bosnian Muslim community. He was also convicted of persecution, extermination, deportation and forcible transfer (ethnic cleansing), and murder in connection with his campaign to drive Bosnian Muslims and Croats out of villages claimed by Serb forces. He avoided conviction on a second count of genocide in seven Bosnian towns but was found guilty in that case on a reduced charge of extermination. On 27th February 2018 it was announced by the Mechanism for International Criminal Tribunals that hearings for the appeal against the conviction were set on 23th April 2018. The appeal was rejected on 20th March 2019, and the sentence was increased to life imprisonment.
