Croatian Disabled Homeland War Veterans Association (HVIDRA) thinks that, with the verdict passed to the 'Vukovar three,' indicted for war crimes in Vukovar in 1991, the Hague Tribunal lost its credibility, said HVIDRA President Josip Djakic at a press conference today.
He says that this brings into question the ongoing purpose of the existence of the constitutional law on the cooperation of the Republic of Croatia with the International Tribunal in the Hague.
He points out that the association sent an official letter to the Croatian Parliament today requesting that a debate be started on the issue.
Djakic says that disabled homeland war veterans are embittered by the scandalous decisions made by the Hague Tribunal, "where they punish real war criminals for whom irrefutable evidence exists as if they had committed a traffic violation." "There is no justice, justice has died," says Djakic, adding that there is no international justice for Croatia. HVIDRA thinks that this verdict turns all the acts and resolutions into a "dead letter onpaper."
He asks whether the international community and the Hague prosecutors do not recognize the executioners who stood before the cameras and clearly and unambiguously gave orders to execute the wounded, the civilians and Vukovar citizens.
In response to a question about the protests, Djakic said that protests were held in Varazdin and Vukovar yesterday and are being held in Zagreb today. He announced that they would keep protesting and using every democratic means available to them to keep pointing to the fact that Croatia is once again in danger of those who are unable totell the victim from the aggressor.
Djakic says that they are not opposed to justice and justness, but merely want it to be applied equally to everyone. President of the HVIDRA management board Josip Perisa also voiced dissatisfaction with the Hague Tribunal's ruling. He pointed out thatthe ruling was a confirmation of a theory HVIDRA has had for years, that the Hague Tribunal was a political court whose purpose was to show that everyone in this region was the same and that there is neither a victim nor an aggressor here.
