The UN's war crimes court has rejected a request by Bosnian Serb wartime leader Radovan Karadzic for a new trial.

Karadzic has been on trial since October 2009 on war crimes charges including genocide for allegedly masterminding Serbian atrocities during Bosnia's 1992-95 war.

He has pleaded not guilty to all the charges.

Last month, he asked the International Criminal Court for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) for a fresh trial, accusing prosecutors of being late in disclosing evidence favorable to his defense.

The ruling on September 3 by judges at The Hague-based tribunal says delays in evidence disclosure have not infringed Karadzic's right to a fair trial.

The UN court has repeatedly delayed Karadzic's trial to enable him to review newly disclosed evidence.
