Croatia demands 15 billion euros war damages
I am talking about War Reparations for cca 10 years. I startedto do this during the war. Most of the answers were, that this is impossible.Not that it is possible, but it is IMPERATIVE. First estimates seems to be verylow. I am not an expert on the subject, but the common sense would assume atleast quadruple amount.
BANJA LUKA -- Friday – Croatia is demanding 15 billion euros of war damages compensation from Yugoslavia according to first estimates.This is the latest from Croatian President Stjepan Mesic. “Croatia was a victim of Yugoslavia’s, that is Serbia’s, aggression and must answer for what happened here”, he said.“First off we need to talk about the damage, how it will be paid, and by when. We must reach inter-state agreements”, said Mesic. “It is obvious that we have been the victims…if volunteers were rounded up in Serbia and began attacking and destroying Croatian cities together with the Yugoslav Army, and killing Croatian citizens, then Serbia cannot say that it did not know about it” Mesic said in an interview with the Banja Luka daily Nezavisnenovine. He added that it is logical that the former Serbian President Milan Milutinovic went to The Hague. “It is reasonable that he appear before the Tribunal because the crimes in Kosovo were committed during his presidency. It is up to The Hague to determine how responsible is for the crimes committed by his country” he concluded.
