Carla Del Ponte, Chief Prosecutor
International Criminal Tribunal
For The Former Yugoslavia
2517JW The Hague
Dear Chief Prosecutor Del Ponte:
Enclosed you will find a book titled, â€śAnatomy of Deceit, An American Physicianâ€™s First-hand Encounter with the Realities of the War in Croatiaâ€?, by Jerry Blaskovich M.D. It is a first-hand, accurate account of the realities he experienced in the war in Croatia. I strongly urge you and the rest of the tribunal to read it. It will provide you with some very important, true facts about how innocent, defenseless Croatian citizens were murdered by Serbian Communists and ignored by most of the world. Check with United States intelligence and you will find that over 90% of the atrocities, grave breaches of the 1949 Geneva Conventions, violations of the laws and customs of war, genocide, and crimes against humanity perpetrated in the former Yugoslavia were carried out by the Serbs. Also keep in mind that all of these criminal acts and grave injustices against Croatians have taken place mainly on Croatian and Bosnian soil.
You and the tribunal should strongly consider reexamining your cases against Croatians and Bosnians because most of the violations of international humanitarian law were committed in Croatian and Bosnian territories, against Croatians and Bosnians. Donâ€™t forget that your institution, the United Nations signed an arms embargo preventing Croatia from defending its innocent civilians from Serbian aggression and furthermore threatened Croatia with sanctions if they attempted to protect themselves. You have put Croatian military personnel on trial, continued pursuing others for trial, and have collaborated in threatening and preventing Croatia from European Union membership and bettering itself for simply defending their own people, borders, and freedom.
You should be ashamed of yourselves.
I truly hope that the book helps you and the tribunal clear up many of your misconceptions and inaccurate evidence.

Below you will find a copy of a letter I recently sent to Carla Del Ponte, Chief Prosecutor of The Hague. I also enclosed a book for her called "Anatomy of Deceit, An American Physician's First-hand Encounter With The Realities Of The War In Croatia", by Jerry Blaskovich, MD. What Dr. Blaskovich writes about is nothing new for some Croatians. However, it is the truth and people need to know what really happened. I urge everyone to read this book. So in the wake of the delaying of Croatia's European Union membership talks, my frustration and anger led me to action. Before, the Serbs were the aggressors against Croatia and oppressors of Croatian independence and betterment. Now it seems like the rest of Europe is. Please don't misunderstand me. I don't believe that European Union membership is the solution to all of Croatia's problems. I think anyone would be naive to think that. Croatia needs much political and economic reform before truly realizing the benefits of European Union membership. Unfortunately, the United Nation's International Criminal Tribunal For The Former Yugoslavia and Carla Del Ponte are abusing their power to oppress Croatia. I hope my letter and the book get to the Chief Prosecutor. If they do, I hope she takes the time to read them, and hopefully they make some type of positive impact.
