The parliamentary Credentials and Privileges Commission on Wednesday, without discussion and unanimously, stripped MP Branimir Glavas of the regional HDSSB party of immunity from prosecution, due to the court proceedings against him before the Supreme Court following a Constitutional Court decision to quash the verdict against him for war crimes in cases dubbed "selotejp" and "garaza" and ordered an investigation to determine whether the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights had been violated.
The Commission will send its decision to parliament which will then make the final decision, most probably on Friday.
The request to strip Glavas of his parliamentary immunity was requested by the Zagreb County Chief Prosecutor's Office.
The Constitutional Court in January quashed the eight year prison sentence against Branimir Glavas for war crimes committed against Serb civilians in the eastern city of Osijek in 1991 and ordered the Supreme Court to repeat proceedings and see if the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms had been violated.
