Radovan Karadžić, (born 19 June 1945) is a former Bosnian Serb politician. During the breakup of Yugoslavia, Karadžić as President of Republika Srpska sought the direct unification of Republika Srpska into Serbia. He is detained in the United Nations Detention Unit of Scheveningen, accused of war crimes committed against Bosnian Muslims and Bosnian Croats during the Siege of Sarajevo, as well as ordering the Srebrenica massacre.
Fulgencio Batista (1901-1973) is perhaps best remembered as the Cuban president who was overthrown by Fidel Castro and the Cuban Revolution of 1953-1959. Batista was corrupt, violent and out of touch with his people (or perhaps he simply didn’t care about them). He frequently ordered the murder of prominent political rivals, but ordinary Cubans had little to fear from him until the revolution began, when his tactics turned increasingly brutal and repressive.
