CROATIA - Sentencing for former General Ante Gotovina

The Zagreb tabloid publishes a portrait of his "hero" on a colored background of the Croatian national flag. April 15 is that the former Croatian general, Ante Gotovina, indicted for war crimes and crimes against humanity committed in 1995 must be returned to The Hague by the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY ).

During the Croatian War of Independence, Gotovina was the head of the Storm to reclaim the Krajina region (south) by expelling the Serb population. The former generals Ivan Cermak and Mladen Markac are accused, as Gotovina, murder, destruction, looting, cruel and forcible transfers of civilians.

Gotovina's arrest in 2005 provoked protests in Croatia.
