Serbia Complains of Reversal of Conviction of Croatians, Who Killed These People?

By Matthew Russell Lee

UNITED NATIONS, December 5 -- Mass murder and war crimes nearly 20 years ago echoed through the UN Security Council on Wednesday evening. In a session on the ad hoc tribunals, three of the last four speakers were Serbia, Croatia, and Bosnia.

  Serbia blasted the reversal of the convictions of former Croatian general Ante Gotovina and security chief Mladen Markac for their roles in Operation Storm in 1995.

  Already, General Assembly President Vuk Jeremic has set up and tweeted about a debate on the topic in April, it's said with the intent to bring in some who fled in 1995. In Wednesday's speech, the Serbian representative asked again and again, "Who killed these people?"

  It's worth revisiting what Gotovina told Croatian leader Franjo Tudman: "A large number of civilians are already evacuating Knin and heading towards Banja Luka and Belgrade. That means that if we continue this pressure, probably for some time to come, there won’t be so many civilians just those who have to stay, who have no possibility of leaving." See here, page 5.

   Serbs committed war crimes, for sure, for example in Vukovar as simply one example. But what is this Gotovina to Tudman quote, if not a Joint Criminal Enterprise? We will cover the April sesssion, and the run-up. Watch this site.

Footnote: because new news is more newsy, Inner City Press asked the Croatian representative about his recent letter, along with Austria, about attacks in Syria. He acknowledged it, but said Croatia would stay as long as possible. We'll see.
