After speaking before Croatian members of parliament on Friday, the head of the European Parliament, Hans-Gert Poettering, addressed reporters. He commented on yesterday's verdicts to the 'Vukovar Three' that shocked the Croatian public. This is a temporary verdict. Carla Del Ponte has lodged an appeal and I expect all the culprits to get real punishment, Poettering said, adding that Del Ponte had the greatest insight into the crimes.
He voiced his confidence in the chief prosecutor of the international war crimes tribunal in The Hague, hailing her decision to lodge an appeal.
Poettering congratulated Croatian Parliament Speaker Vladimir Seks and Croatia for their intensive drawing closer towards the European Union, stressing that the importance of today was that some two dozen new laws would be passed. I am expressing my honest wish that Croatia join the EU and that the European Parliament will consent to Croatia's accession into the European Union, he said. Seks said that in addressing the Croatian parliament, Poettering had" strongly confirmed Croatia's need to continue with reforms that are the foundation of a law-based state and to continue with the policy of good neighbourly relations with countries in the region".-In line with that, the parliament joins in efforts that Croatia adopts the legislature necessary for entering the EU - Seks said, voicing hope that Europe would open its doors to Croatia in 2009.
