Glavas responds to Serbian officials' accusations

Croatian Democratic Alliance of Slavonia and Baranja (HDSSB) MP Branimir Glavas held a conference in Osijek on Thursday on, as he said, Greater Serbia's protest notes to Croatia, interference in Croatia's home affairs and continued pressure on the Croatian judiciary.

Glavas said "the Croatian authorities should respond more resolutely to the rudeness of the eastern neighbours."

He said Serbia's accusations were even more grotesque if one recalled the biographies of Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic, President Tomislav Nikolic and Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic. He said Serbia was "a hostage of proven Chetnik ideologists Vucic and Nikolic."

"At the helm of Serbia are not normal politicians of democratic pro-European beliefs and world views but... inveterate Serb neo-fascists and pro-Chetnik nationalists whom Croatia should prosecute for the crimes they committed during (Croatia's) Homeland War, during the Greater Serbian aggression in the Republic of Croatia," Glavas said.

He added that "all three were active participants in the Greater Serbian and Chetnik aggression on Croatia from 1991 and 1995, for which they should be held to account before Croatian courts."
